Badminton Tournament Mechanics

Round Robin
1) Pairings will be drawn randomly and will have two groups both for men and ladies. Ladies will start the matches at 4:30. If there’s a court available, men can start having their match too. Every pair will play each other in the same group.
2) Only 1 set of 21 points will be played for each game (deuce points apply, i.e. clear of 2) during the round robin.
3) The top 2 pairs from each group will proceed to the semi- finals. Top 1 will play against Top 2 of the other group and vice versa.
4) The procedure to solve a round robin tie is as follows:

• 1. Ranking will be established by the number of matches won.
• 2. If two pairs have won the same number of matches, the winner of the match between them will be ranked higher.
• 3. If three or more pairs have won the same number of matches, ranking will be established by the difference between total games won and total games lost.
• *** If this still leaves two pairs equal, the winner of the match between them will be ranked higher.
• 4. If three or more pairs have won the same number of matches and are equal in the difference between total games won and total games lost, ranking will be established by the difference between total points won and total points lost.
• *** If this still leaves two pairs equal, the winner of the match between them will be ranked higher.
• *** If three or more pairs are still equal, then ranking will be established by drawing lots.
