For 2019, there is just one new change for tournaments
In 2019, there is a new option for Level 4 tournaments to be run in one day. These are call "Flighted One Day Level 4 Tournaments." The regular Level 4 tournaments are held over 2-3 days with generally an unlimited draw. The Flight One Day Level 4 Tournaments are held just in one day and have 8 players per draw. If more than that apply, then there will be a second draw in the same division and they will be separated based on rankings (top 8 in one draw and the next players in the second). These are two out of three sets with a tiebreaker for a third and players in draws of 8 are guaranteed 3 matches with the compass draws. Ranking points are about 70% of the other Level 4 tournaments.
The other one day events are the Single Day Showdowns - Level 5s which are also very popular and are described below:
- Ranking points potentially available (if tournaments are gender based)
- Non-members and members can participate
- Often done in 4-6 hour time frames which are much more family and customer friendly events. Matches are often timed matches.
- Usually compass draw or round robin
- Each player is guaranteed 3-5 matches
