Memorial Tournament 2021

Sunday 19th September sees the return of the Memorial Triples Tournament, this year being held at Carlton Park Saxmundham.

Please be at the venue for 9:15 ready for a short briefing.

On Sunday 12th, Martin did a live Facebook draw to decide the teams, taking a player from each of the three 'Barrels' to ensure the teams are as balanced and random as possible.

Memorial 2021 Seeding Teams

The format will be three 'seeding' rounds in the morning, after which teams will be seeded based on our usual system of Games Won/Drawn/Lost then points difference then points for.

Seeds 1 to 8 will go through to the Gold Knockout, seeds 9 to 16 to the Silver Knockout and seeds 17 to 22 will go into the Bronze Knockout.

In the Gold and Silver, the 4 losers of the next round will go into the Gold Consolage and Silver Consolage. In the Bronze Knockout, seeds 19 to 22 will play off, with the winners joining seeds 17 and 18 in the Semi-Final, the losers will be out of the competition. If this is as clear as mud, don't panic, we will tell you what to do on the day.

All games up to the finals will be timed at 50 minutes, when the bell rings you finish the end you are on and play one more. An end is deemed to have finished when the last boule of the end has been played.

Here are the list of the seeding matches with the estimated start times.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Summer League Knockout Stage

We are approaching the end of the Pool stages of the Summer League 2021, and as soon as the last results are in we will publish the draw for the Knockout stages. Please remember that all Pool matches must be played by 22/08/2021.

There will 5 separate Knockout tournaments:-

  • Gold - The 8 teams who won their respective Pool
  • Silver - The 8 teams who came second in their Pool
  • Bronze - The 8 teams who came third in their Pool
  • Copper - The 8 teams who came fourth in their Pool
  • Tin - The 6 teams who came fifth in their Pool

The top two seeds in the Tin Tournament will get a Bye to the Semi-Final stage.

Teams will be seeded based on the usual SCPA method, using the metrics below to split the teams:-

  1. Points per game
  2. Games difference
  3. Games won
  4. Points difference
  5. Points scored

Matches are the same format as the Pool stages, 2 rounds of 2 pairs, with a deciding game to be played if the score is 2-2. As per usual SCPA rules, this decider can be played by a pair who previously played together.
