Team Challenge Draw Generator for singles and doubles match play
What is Team Challenge?
Team Challenge is a match format often used by coaches, clubs and associations as a fun competition to foster team spirit & encourage participation.
Players compete in small teams for points over a short series of matches. Players will compete against every player in the other team.
The MatchUp team challenge format involves two teams (groups) with a choice of either singles or doubles matches.
From the Players tab, select the available players from the two Groups that are going to participate in the Team Challenge.
From the Draw tab, select the Team Challenge Format (Singles or Doubles) and then select the two groups (teams) that are participating. For fixed pairs (eg father and son pair), use the Fixed Pairs format - each pair will play each pair in the other team.
The number of courts and rounds will be automatically determined based on the number of players in the teams and whether it is singles or doubles. The maximum number of players permitted in each group for Team Challenge format is 24 (i.e. 23 rounds).
Doubles - each player will partner with each other player in the same team (group) once and play against each other player in the other team. For doubles, each player will play opposite the same player in each match.
To ensure an even matchup, you can sort and rank the players in each team by tapping on either of the team in the Team Challenge Details table of the Draw tab. For example, if you had a team of 3 girls and 3 boys, you should put the girls and boys in the same order in both teams & ideally ranking them. This would then always generate a doubles or mixed doubles match and not end up with say 3 boys and 1 girl. The top boy or girl from each team would play against the top boy or girl from the other team in each match.
Singles/Fixed Pairs - each player plays against every other player/fixed pair in the other team.
If there is one player more in one of the teams, a player from that team will have a bye in each round.
