Hi players,

The NELBDG are about to start a Team League 'match-play' night, are you interested?

The Team 'match-play' night will be Tuesday at the YMCA Grimsby 7pm till 10pm.

To start with, the players in each team will be designated by a selection committee to ensure a fare competitive league, but if things go well, players will eventually be able to enter their team.

We are open to suggestions on how to formulate the team play! Suggestions so far:

Option (1)

Each team will consist of four players and will play on a combination style format as follows:

Player 1 will partner players 2 and 3
Player 2 will partner players 1 and 4
Player 3 will partner players 1 and 4
Player 4 will partner players 2 and 3

The order of play will be:

1+2 v 1+2
3+4 v 3+4
1+3 v 1+3
2+4 v 2+4
1+2 v 1+3
3+4 v 2+4
1+3 v 1+2
2+4 v 3+4

This will give each player 4 games per match and if each game goes to three, that could be up to 12 games per night!

Option (2)

Each team to consist of 6 players and each player will have a set partner as follows:

Player 1 will partner player 2
Player 3 will partner player 4
Player 5 will partner player 6

The order of play will be:

1+2 v 3+4
3+4 v 5+6
5+6 v 1+2
1+2 v 5+6
3+4 v 3+4
5+6 v 5+6
3+4 v 1+2
5+6 v 3+4
1+2 v 1+2

This will give each player 3 games per match and if each game goes to three, that could be up to 9 games per night!

If you have any better or alternative ideas, please let me know.
