VBmatch and ARPD will co-host an INDOOR Volleyball Tournament at Alameda Point Gym on SATURDAY (November 25, 2017) of Thanksgiving Weekend.
The format will be: Indoor Semi-Random-Draw Unisex Reverse-Coed Hybrid 2s & 4s.
What is "Unisex Reverse-Coed" ?
Reverse-Coed games are played on a Women's Height Net with men hitting back-row from the 10-foot-line (men may not block). "Unisex" means that teams may have any combination of men and women including all women or all men rosters. There is neither a male-contact rule nor a female-contact rule for this tournament.
What is "Hybrid 2s and 4s" ?
The tournament will start with 4-on-4 competition during Round-Robin Pool-Play and also include some 2-on-2 games. For Playoffs, we start with 4-on-4 competition. However, toward the latter part of Playoffs, the games will change to 2-on-2 competition.
What is "Semi-Random-Draw" ?
Even though the tournament will start with 4-on-4 competition, you do not sign up with a team of 4 players. Instead, you sign up with 1 Partner as a "PAIR." At the tournament, you will draw a random schedule and team up with other pairs for 4-on-4 competition in Pool-Play. You and your partner will always play together; the other pair (two players) of your Quad team changes (via random selection) for Pool-Play games.
All pairs are ranked separately based on their Pool-Play results. The first part of Playoffs will start with 4-on-4 competition. A pair selection process is used to form Quad teams for Playoffs starting with the #1 ranked pair who may choose any other pair including the #2 pair. The selection process goes down the list from there: the next highest ranked pair that has not been picked then chooses their teammates and so on.
Using an Elimination Bracket, Reverse-Coed 4s competition is played until there are only 2 Quad teams (or 8 players) remaining. At that point, the Quad teams revert back to their original pairs; former teammates must now play against each other in Reverse-Coed 2s competition. Thus, it would be unwise to choose an exceptionally strong pair as your Quad teammates; while they may help you through the 4-on-4 competition, they may prove hard-to-beat in the first round of 2-on-2 competition. Single-elimination Reverse-Coed 2s competition will be used to determine the sole surviving pair - the Winners of the tournament.
Each pair will be scheduled for a minimum of 4 Pool-Play (round-robin) games. All pairs will advance to Playoffs.
ENTRY FEE: $25-per-player (for EARLY registration BY Wed 11/15); $27.50-per-player (for pre-registration BY Wed 11/22); $30-per-player (for registration AFTER Wed 11/22).
