Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

Up, sorry I didn't respond earlier.

I still think the Fed Cup format is the most fun team format, you get to play head-to-head with someone, and the current team league is pretty much decided by Wednesday/Thursday.

I'm still a bit confused about how the league would work? Would it be head-to-head over several weeks, or would it be one in one tournament? The first might be hard to recruit people to (3-4 months until they could even play in division I).

Personally, I think it's best to have one individual winner and one team winner each tournament. Easiest and simplest to work out. So if that's the goal, what would be the best way of getting there? (Not quite sure myself)

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Pentathlon - General discussion thread

The way I see it now is the following:
-There will be one individual winner each tournament. So it is not going to change.
-Team competion will be FEDCUP like, but still one winner per week. Depending the number of teams the format will either be daily elimination or daily round robin.
-I would like to change the number of team members to 4. So teams might change a bit
-In addition (if there is a need) I set up (an) individual league(s) 8 players each (1st 2nd 3rd division later). It is a 10 week excercise, where you can skip a week or two, with weekly face to face matches.

I open Brisbane soon and ask for the new teams and whether you want to take part of the league.

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.
