How it works?

  • Although there are benefits for attending each week, you are NOT required to commit for every session in the two month FLEX League.
  • Players are allowed to sign online until 5:00pm on the day of the league. If you need to withdraw for any reason (work, traffic, etc) please notify us by 6:00pm.
  • Depending on the number of signups, players will be split into up to three playing groups based on RatingsCentral rating. From there, random draws will be used to assign up to 4/5 players to a table for a round robin.
  • Matches will be best 3 games of 5 up to 11 point with normal GVTTC rules.  Warmup for matches should last no longer than 2 minutes.
  • Draws will be created after 6:00pm and league play begins at 6:30pm. If you do not arrive by 7:00pm you will not receive league points.

Scoring

  • Results will be processed in RatingsCentral to determine whether each player's rating went up or down.
  • Players receive 1 league point for playing their matches.
  • Players receive an additional 1 league point if their RatingsCentral rating stays neutral OR an additional 2 league points if their RatingsCentral rating goes up.
  • Examples:
    • Bob starts the night with a rating of 1050. He goes 2-1 for the night and his new rating is 1077. Bob will receive 1 point for playing and 2 points for improving for a total of 3 league points for the night.
    • John starts the night with a rating of 1430. He goes 1-2 for the night and his new rating is 1402. John will receive 1 point for playing.

Ranking and awards (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
