LUCK OF THE DRAW (LOD) SCORING EXPLANATION

In a division with LOD matches, each team will play some teams twice. The LOD points entered in the yellow boxes on the score card on Topdog will be the "best" score (number of slots won) for each team, over the two matches played, up to a maximum of 4 total. A team can only earn additional points in the second LOD match, if they win more slots than they did in the first match.

Example: If Team A wins 3-1 in the first match against Team B, Team A would need to win 4-0 in the second match, in order to earn any additional points. If Team A did win 4-0, in the second match, Team A would earn 1 additional point. If the teams split 2-2 in the first match, at second match a team could only "earn" additional points if they won 3-1 (would earn 1 more point) or 4-0 (would earn 2 more points). If the teams split 2-2 again, in the second match, neither team would receive any additional LOD points and points would be entered as 0-0.

Captains must enter LOD points, in the yellow boxes, each week, regardless of whether they play a team once or twice. For each match, until the LOD 2nd matches, simply enter points reflecting the number of slots won per team, in the yellow boxes. For LOD second matches, use the chart below, or do some simple math based on above example, to figure out the points to enter. Topdog will automatically add the LOD points from first and second matches, to finalize overall points per team and determine the division winner.

Adding a player after the Captain's Meeting

NEW PLAYER PROFILES or requests to add on level players, which are presented after the Captain's Meeting, should be submitted to your level Coordinator, along with the league registration fee. The Coordinator will forward registration fee to the STL Treasurer. Players will NOT be added to a team roster until payment is received by the Treasurer. If there is a time contraint, you may need to bring payment to Treasurer. Coordinator will process player submission and once player is approved, will be forwarded to the Topdog Administrator to be entered into Topdog.

C

The Coman tiebreak procedure is identical to the regular tiebreak procedure except that the players change ends after the first point and then after every four points, and at the conclusion of the tiebreak.

•Set Tiebreak: First to win 7 points by 2 points wins “Game “ and “Set.”

•Third-set Match Tiebreak: First to win 10 points by 2 points, wins match.

•The player whose turn it is to serve shall serve the first point from the deuce court.

•After the first point, the players shall change ends and the following two points shall be served by the opponent(s) (in doubles, the player of the opposing team due to serve next) starting from the ad court.

•After this, each player/team shall serve alternately for two consecutive points (starting from the ad court); changing ends after every four points, until the end of the tiebreak game.

•Switch sides after points 1,5,9,13,17..…. and at the conclusion.

PRINCIPLE ADVANTAGES

Fairness – By changing ends more frequently, the effects of the elements (sun, wind, etc.) are distributed more evenly between the two opponents as opposed to playing six consecutive points before changing ends.

In doubles, the server will always serve from the same end of the court that he/she did during the set, rather than having to serve from both ends.
