    Hi CCCers,

    We shall start our Booking List for Wednesday CCC at MSAC: 21-Nov-2012

    It's our 241st Wednesday Social Session at MSAC (after we have moved here permanently); and it's our 44thfor this year.

    We do a Booking List:
    (1) To welcome BadmintonCentral members to attend.
    (2) To ensure that players who have booked in would not be turned away.
    (3) To ensure that we have enough games for all players, it is best not to exceed 18 players.
    Hope to have our 'Booking List' finalised by Tuesday 6:30pm.

    Reminder:
    If you cannot attend, you will need to be removed before 4:30pm on Wednesday, otherwise you will be charged.
    Why? Because there are CCCers who are wishing to attend (checking to book in - up to the last hours) have found themselves missing out after we have FULL HOUSE.


    For any questions about our CCC Badminton Club, please post to ask here (in this thread).

    Partnership Listing

    .
    It looks like some CCCers are either not aware of Wen's suggested Partnership Listing, and/or leaving up to me to decide for your partners.

    I am getting ready to go for our CCC CATS now. The Partnership Listing shall be updated later.

    Format - playing same pairs too often

    2) Personally I do not enjoy this format at all. It is too rigid/structured and it does not allow players to organise games and limits players flexibility for game organisation. I understand this method worked for previous format where we had approximately 26 players each week. Currently we have 18 players (or 19 including Chris), i'm sure with 2 courts being available, players can organise their own games.

    Another thing that i don't like about this method is on some occassions, you and your partner end up playing the same pair for multiple times during the night and didn't play against other players.

    For example: 2 weeks ago, there were 18 players that means we had 9 pairs in total. Due to the game structure which states:
    "2.4 After your Qualification Matches, there should be winners and losers awaiting to play in the next scheduled match (the Challenge Match). As scheduled and when players enter onto the court, the 4 players may exchange partners if they wish (in other words only amongst the 4 winners, or only amongst the 4 losers). If a winner is to partner a loser, we don't know how to name your pair (as a winning or a losing pair)."

    My partner and i ended up playing:

    4 times against 1 pair
    2 times against 2 pairs
    1 time against 4 pairs.
    0 time against 1 pair.

    There is not enough distribution with every other players during the session. I like the idea that everyone can play against each other however, this format does not allow for that to happen. Maybe we should trial for self organisation in future weeks. It may or may not work but at least we're trying something else.

    i see your point Cerebellum. Perhaps the pairs can arrange among themselves to play against the other pair, with the winning pair swapping places with a losing pair and getting the ok of the other winning pair who was going to play with the original winning pair. i would have no prob with that if i'm a losing pair and was asked about the possibility to swap, provided my partner and the other winning pair agrees. I think all of us are badminton friends and would not mind a bit of leeway going both ways.
    What do you guys think?
    Cheers.

    CCC Badminton is a coaching club

    .
    Thank you Jon for making that statement. It highlights some relevant matters. :):):)

    As the founder of our CCC Badminton Club, I need to repeat what I have said to our CCC trainees and social players (new or old).

    We have to make it clear because many of our CCC training/social players don't know about it. I shall state it here below (as to how our CCC Badminton Club has progressed);

    1. CCC Badminton Club is a coaching club formed 10 years ago. It was when our CCC CATS (our Coaching And Coaching Session) was formulated.

    2. Later, I was asked to organise social sessions by our CCC trainees, so that they could practice what they have learnt at out CCC CATS.

    3. When our CCC social sessions were opened (to non-trainees to participate), many others did join in.

    4. Somehow, many non-trainees thought the opposite way - That CCC is a Social Badminton Club with a coaching division to teach them to participate in our social sessions. It has to be reminded that this is not the case; We are a coaching club with trainees wishing to invite others to join in to play/practise social games with them.

    5. etc, etc, ......

    We need to repeat this: Our CCC Badminton is a coaching club. But at our Social sessions, there shall be no coaching, because we are to our enjoy games (without interruption with comments/instructions as how we play during our games).

    One of our reasons for how we formulated the format for our social games

    .
    One of our reasons for how we formulated the format for our social games is to ensure that our timid players don't get less games to play.

    Previously, it has been seen that our more out-going players keep entering the court to play, therefore giving our timid players having fewer games.

    I agree with jjlee118 - regarding the format.

    My suggested format- Why dont we make the swapping mandatory between the winning pairs or losing pairs? We can try it for one night.

    Others please feel free to suggest and lets agree on a trial format.

    I am assuming this is swapping the sequence of playing (not swapping partners)

    Scenario:-

    Current play: Winning Team A vs Winning Team B
    Next play: Winning Team C vs Winning Team D

    A wish to play D. So A (skip on game) can swap with C (play one game earlier) to play against D. Basically if any team willing to wait and another team willing to play forward (of course need have mutual agreement on this). This applies the same for the Losing team.

    Do note that C (some want to rest or otherwise) may have just finish the game not long ago. However this may result to a very confusing situation when everyone starts changing. Especially when (assuming above scenario remains):

    Subsequent next play: Winning Team E vs Winning Team F

    B wants to play with E ; F wants to play with D

    The end result will become (this is the most simple everyone-ok scenario though and may not happen):

    Current play: Winning Team C vs Winning Team E
    Next play: Winning Team A vs Winning Team F
    Subsequent next play: Winning Team B vs Winning Team D

    Confusion on sequence of play can lead to arguments.

    Also, going back to the off the court issue (I remember reading somewhere) faced by Chris on people asking him if this player is coming ornot, then I won’t come etc. IMO this will happen on the court unfortunately. Although I don’t know the actually reason but obviously will be either something like that pair sucks(waste of time?) or too good(can’t beat them?)

    I know I’m not adding suggestion but contrary. To make sure we get to play against each other (all), limited swapping is good or maybe a league or bring back the white board?

    Thank you very much amiguy. At least i know that another person understands what i'm talking about.

    You're right in saying that everything will get confusing once multiple teams want to change partners/opponents etc etc. Hence, i brought up the suggestion that we organise games ourselves (by that i mean requests games and let Chris organise that matches) or create a sheet for game numbers and we can allocate our games there (or whiteboard, same thing).

    I know it can be confusing because a couple of weeks ago, the matter was even simpler than this and yet it seemed like it was rocket science. here was the scenario:

    Current Play (at 10PM): Team A (myself) vs Team B (Chris) - Winner's court
    Team C vs Team D - Loser's court

    i wanted to play against Team D as i had not played them all night due to the nature of play sequence. So i asked Chris if i could swap with team C, but Chris did not understand what i was talking about as he thought that this would disrupt the play sequence. In reality, this should have any issue at all considering that both Team A9 (my team) and Team C were scheduled to play next.

    This is the main reason why i dislike the current format. it creates confusion to some players and reduce flexibility.

    Happy to hear suggestions for any other formats we could try.

    regards,

    Cerebellum

    An easy way to schedule our matches

    .
    We should be happy to try out anything, provided we have a system which provides;
    1. All CCCers get a chance to play against all other CCCers. This is to avoid segregation.
    2. All CCCer get to play equal number of games. This is to ensure our timid players are not playing less.
    3. An easy way to schedule our matches, which does not requiring an organiser for scheduling matches.
    4. A format which could be transformed into some sort of a competition. This could monitor who are our CCCers making improvement/progress over a course of time.
    5. etc, etc, ......

    On point No.4, with our current method/system of scheduling, I have been thinking of giving some rewards for those who played well. But what kind of rewards, that is the question:):):)

    Informing and asking permission from everyone was the problem

    .
    Actually, I understood it when you made your request. In fact, it was OK with me.

    I was thinking it's too much trouble to ask/inform all players for why a change of scheduling was to be arranged. Am I the only one to ask/inform everyone wondering what's happening?

    It's always the case that I am in-charge, but we need to inform everyone.

    Informing and asking permission from everyone was the problem.

    Hi Guys,
    Apologies for not clarifying, yes amiguy's right, i was just refering to the sequence of play rather than change of partners. The current format is great i think. My suggestion was only in response to cerebellum's comment about playing against the same pair too many times. So long as all the pairs concerned are ok with 'swapping', there should be no prob. Chris can relax as he does not have to organise it - it does not put out anybody or alter any other pair's sequence of play except those concerned.
    I think it would not be too often that a pair would play 4 times against the same pair as happened to cerebellum so i do not think there will really be too much 'swapping' of sequence.
    See you guys at next session. Cheers!
