Our melees are held once a month on Saturday afternoons, and are Club and by Invitation Melees, not open Melees.
The format for the Melees is the Panache tournament type that is where individual players enter and are grouped into teams using a random selection method. However the teams don’t stay together for the entire melee. For each game the teams are reformed using the same random method. Individual players change teams in each round and carry their own individual score with them.
After each game each player will be asked to record their score, Win or Lose and the difference between Win and Lose, against their Name on the score sheet provided.
Individuals to register by 09.00 am on the morning of the match and to arrive by 01:15 pm to start at 01:30 pm.
Before we start each player will draw a number and this will be their playing number for all games.
There will be a Melee playing sheet, designed for the number of people taking part, and for each game, the players number will be shown, together the number of the person or persons in their team, and also which piste you are playing on.
This means that in every game you play you will be in a different team against a different team.
There will be three games, with a possible 50 minute time limit on the first and second games.
This kind of competition can be played with any amount of players and can be singles, doubles or triples and sometimes you can have doubles playing triples.
The entry fee is £1:00 per person with all the money being given out in prizes and split between first, second or third places.
In deciding the winner the total number of wins and the difference in score, i.e. for and against, will be taken into account, if more than one player has the same score the prize will be split between those players.
There is a annual Trophy for the best yearly player; players must play in at least 5 matches out of a possible 12 in order to qualify for inclusion in the competition.If a players plays in more than 5 matches their best 5 scores are used in determining their yearly position.
