- Matches will consist of three games. Matches will be played in a team format where the first game will be played by men’s doubles, the second game will be played by women’s doubles, and the last game will be played by mixed doubles.
- Each match is allotted 35 minutes.
- The tournament is set up for round robin pool play in 3 pools. Competitive teams are spread out across the 3 pools. The top 2 teams from each pool will be put into Tier 1; 3rd and 4th place teams in Tier 2, and the 5th and 6th place teams into Tier 3. Please note that this is only a guideline that we use and it is subject to CCC’s discretion. In some cases, less or more teams may move into the tier that CCC deems appropriate based on not only results, but also through our assessment of skill level of the teams.
- Teams are seeded after round robin. All teams make playoffs on Sunday.
- In playoffs, double elimination will be used. (Changed from single elimination previously)
- Rules are based on Badminton Canada rules modified for Corporate Challenge Canada.
- Note that a participant is eligible to play in more than one game in a match. (E.g. A male can play in the men’s doubles and mixed doubles games.)
- A game is played to 21 points, win by two points, and cap at 25 points (except in playoffs, time permitting)
- Each team can call one 30-second timeout per game.
- Points are recorded based on a rally point system.
- If the allotted time expires, and the third match is in play:
- Round Robin: If neither team has scored a minimum of 5 points, the game will be declared a tie. If one or both teams have scored at least 5 points, the team who is ahead in points will be declared the winner.
- Playoffs: If one or both teams have scored at least 5 points, the team who is ahead in points will be declared the winner. If neither team has scored a minimum of 5 points, a new tiebreaker game will be played – First team to reach 5 points wins.
- Teams will be ranked based on their record. In the case of a tie, the following tiebreakers will be used:
- Total Points Scored
- Point Differential
- Total Points Allowed
- If still tired after all 3 tie breakers, coin toss.
- We encourage players to bring their own racket, however there will be a few available on site.
- Game birdies (Nylon Mavis 300) will be provided.
