For advanced adult and junior players, nationally-ranked tournaments and leagues are run to find and reward New Zealand's best players.
We use various formats for our tournaments, including the butterfly draw and the Swiss pairing system.
The butterfly draw is a knock-out bracket format with a consolation round, ensuring that players are guaranteed multiple matches, resulting in more participation and a more enjoyable experience for those involved.
The Swiss pairing system is a non-eliminating tournament format where players who have lost a match can continue to play. Each competitor plays opponents with a similar running score during the tournament over a set number of rounds, typically around seven to ten, time allowing. This format also means that there are more games played, resulting in more participation and a more enjoyable experience for those involved.
Due to the the COVID-19 outbreak, there are currently no upcoming competitions scheduled.
