THE FIRST REGIONAL TOURNAMENT SPONSORED BY THE TAIWANESE SOCIETY

THE FIRST REGIONAL TOURNAMENT SPONSORED BY THE TAIWANESE SOCIETY

OF SOUTH SURREY AND AREA?? – NOV 2ND?? ON THREE COURTS IN THE CHURCH GYMNASIUM

Of PEACE PORTAL ALLIANCE CHURCH .

 

Mr David Huang ??? tournament director, ??led his 36 players in a social competitive format featuring three

tranches of players?? A?? B?? and C levels of play with approximately 8 teams in each category. The

maximum number of players allowed was 42. The most points per category won the prize for each in a

doubles format featuring 5 games each.?? All players, all ages, all paddles were welcome in keeping with

www.bcpickleball rules?? which are inclusive of all players.

Following the tournament and awards, all convened to the Silver dragon?? restaurant in White Rock

where a no MSG smorgasborg was served.?? At $10.00 per entry fee, costs of rental of space and food

were?? covered . It was interesting that some players won all their games, yet did not wiin a medal as their

point score was not high enough within their skill category.

This format precludes that someone ( in this case the Director ) who knows the players was able to

fairly allocate the players into the various categories of skill levels. Perhaps with better communications

between heads of programs and perhaps heads in other provinces we could adapt this method or look at

The described Drop Flyte method to allow more tournaments and competitions , even social ones , to

complete the tournaments without the eliteist???? aura of ??? rankings and ratings?? and points.

There are several churches surrounding South Surrey Rec that have similar facilities and could put on a

tourney of a similar nature. Let???s hope they do.

A sincere BOW goes to the Taiwanese society for their effort and we hope that they will make this an

Annual affair.
