We will just play as many rounds as we can reasonably fit until the bring start (approx 5-5:30) and then wrap up where everyone has had the opportunity to play the same number of rounds (hopefully 5-6). Each GAME you win counts as a point for your team. The top two teams with the most GAMES won after the qualifying rounds advance to the finals. MATCH wins will be the first tie-breaker. A Team Rondo game to 7 will break any further tie.
Main Rule determining Line-Ups:
The Eligibility Rule: - No player is eligible to play in their (n+1)th game until all players on their team have played in their nth game. (e.g. you can't play in your second game for your team until all team members have played (or are playing) in their first).
Team Rondo Rule for third Games: All third games (in a best of three) are to be run 'Team Rondo' style. That is, all members of your team will rotate in to play, with rotations occurring when your team is scored upon. In doubles formats, forward shifts out, goalie shifts up, player waiting in the wings shifts to goalie. Lineup order is up to the team captain as long as it is in compliance with the Eligibility Rule.
Finals will consist of a best of three matches of the three Round Formats: (Doubles, Singles Triathlon, Doubles Triathlon). Order of format will be chosen by coin toss (team that's behind picks second format).
-- ANY CUP DECIDING GAME will be played TEAM RONDO style -
