Games

Singles will be straight Matchplay over 9 holes

Doubles will be Alternate shot Matchplay for Round 1 over 9 holes

Play will start with a disc flip with winners choosing to tee first or second. This will apply to all rounds.

As each Game will be played on either Holes 1-9 OR 10-18 Matchplay ensures a more equal way of deciding games rather than stroke play in a Round Robin format. Every team will play either 4 or 5 games in either 1-9 or 10-18 formats.

All Format options were drawn randomly for each game ensuring no bias towards any team or seed. As far as is possible to judge before the event there is no advantage for any team in playing a specific set of formats.

Where teams have registered more than 6 players they can substitute those players into any match in any Game as long as they meet the criteria for the Divisions in which they play. MPM and MJ1 players may play in MPO as long as the criteria for those divisions are also met. All MPO players will be seeded according to their PDGA rating relative to all other MPO players from their team who are chosen to play in a specific match. If an MPO, MPM or MJ1 player does not have a PDGA rating they will be allocated the 75th centile rating used by the TOC to decide the seeding of each team.

This format allows all players to have 3 singles matches and 6 doubles matches in Round One (1). Each player also gets to play with every other member of their team in Doubles. It also allows for the substitutions (as described above) to be made by teams that have more than the minimum 6 players in their squad.

WFDF Disc Golf Committee believes this is a unique format that meets the standards of Inclusion and Equality expected of its organisation.

Points System

Every match in each game is important and points will be awarded so that all players are rewarded for their own individual and team efforts.

Points are awarded for every game. Results for Round 1 will be an accumulation of points against all teams in all games to decide the draw for Round 2.

All Games Singles or Doubles – will be worth 2 pts for a win; 1 pt for a draw.

So every Game in Round 1 has a potential of 8 points per team.

The Points system will also be used in all further Rounds.

Tie Breaks

If there is a 2-way tie on points after Round 1 has been completed then Head to Head results of points won will count first. If still a tie then hole Match-play scores in Doubles will be used. If still a tie then scores in Match play in Singles will be used. If still a tie then a play off will be held between MPO1 players starting on hole 18.

If a 3-way or more tie on points after Round 1 has been completed then points in games between those three or more teams will be calculated. If there is a clear 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc in the group then those results stand. If after points in games between those 3 or more teams there are 2 teams tied then Head to Head result will count first.

However, If still a tie between all teams then Match-play scores in Doubles will be used between all 3 or more teams. If still a tie then scores in Singles will be used. If still a tie then a play off will be held between MJ1 players starting on hole 18.
