Badminton Rumble 2016 Regulations ENTRY DEADLINE OCT 12!!
The Smashville Badminton Rumbles are short match format tourneys designed to allow competitive play against a larger variety of opponents than a typical tournament. Matches up through the semi-finals are 1 game to 25 (switch sides at 13). Round robin pools are set up for matches against at least 3 opponents/teams and up to possibly 5 or even 6!
In multiple bracket events, both 1st and 2nd place teams will advance to a playoff round.
Single bracket event pools will not generate a “playoff”. Not all pools will generate a “playoff”.
Players must commit to being present for the entire event due to the large number of matches scheduled and the possibility of additional unscheduled “drop-down” matches.
