No prob, just come on down on Saturday, and let us know if you need directions to the complex

I really like your idea on the tournament, so if there are enough people then I am really keen on the idea. Here's some input on how we can do it.
Badminton Doubles Tournament
Format: (either K/O or League depending on response)
Should be K/O, due to the fact its faster.
Date and Time: TBA (guys need your input)
How about two weeks from this Saturday, the 27th of May, and the subsequently the last weekend of every month.
Open To : Jim's Saturday Group and friends.
No Age Group all category.
Points System (either 15 or 21 )
I am really keen to try out the 21 point system but seems like most of us are still comfortable with the 15 point system.
How about we have people sign up for the tournament, and then draw the pairings out of a box, that way we will not have one strong pair dominate all the time, and it makes it a bit exciting because you never know who you will get as pair.
Just some ideas, please feedback and we can proceed from there.
Location CCK Stadium

Its true if by the luck of the draw two very good players get to partner each other then the rest of us can just sit back and enjoy the show, but thats the luck factor. On the other hand if we allow to choose partner then for sure the very good ones will always keep winning because they will choose the best partner and eventually the mere mortals like myself will just have to accept being knocked out in the first round everytime, and then slowly move on to becoming an umpire or a line judge, or even the guy who sits by with the mop bucket.

yea, and I can be the linesman.
you can try another approach...like umm
category 1: average players
category 2: strong players
then can draw one from each category to play as a pair, but since we have more average players compared to strong players...we might get all the average players to pit against one another(in doubles) then pick winning team to play against the combination doubles(ie from cat1 and cat2)
Maybe its so confusing, I dont even know what I am trying to say.

Lightsmash idea is good but implementation could prove touchy. I was just thinking: to make thing simple, why dun we just let Fred (the proposed tournament organiser) use his professionism wisdom and impartial judgement to pair the players. If anyone thought he was not paired fairly, just cursed and sworn in silence, but no appeal or objection allowed. This way we pass the most headache problem (players pairing) to Fred (we may need to share costs buying Panadol for him) and we can just concentrate on having FUN...

I don't like the idea of turning Fred into another Gomez, just end up with people being unhappy if they are paired with somebody they are not comfortable with and have no avenue for complaining. I am still for the idea of putting everyone's name in a hat and drawing out the pairs, if a strong pair emerges then thats just pure luck and nothing anyone can do about it. Just have to wait until the next tournament and hope for better luck.

Fred, Dun wori lah, as long as u pair Jimmy with MADMAN, they will jingle madly with no time to complain
Alternatively, u, Jim and MADMAN form an IPC ( Independent Pairing Committee) to decide on the pairing. No minority certificate is required from any of the players, so nobody needs to wori about ended like JG. However, the IPC must be Prudence And Perfect (PAP) in making the decision, so no one can accuse it of doing Wayang Pairing (WP) and slam it as Incompetent Pairing Crabs

Michael, u are very bold with your words.
05-11-2006, 03:34 AM #591
Hi Lsmash, thanks 4 the "warning", hope I dun get midnite knocking on my door
Jim. sori i took too long to write, so my post came out after yours. I shall let the voters (players) decide whether they prefer your TOTO method or my COMMITTEE method. However u must give assurances in abundance that players have a free choice and they will not be persecuted (politically or not) if they so decided to vote against your "policy"

We are definitely living in a free and democratic society, so I will let the players choose whose method they prefer, but I am sure the players are fully aware that there is always a consequence to the choices they make. Make the wrong choice and they might just have to wait a bit longer to play and the shuttles might be of a lesser quality. Because they ones who have chosen my way will have priority, so choose wisely

Let suggest something,ok? Why not be Free & Easy.........Let everyone write their name on a slip and drop in the ballot box and let have an instant draw on the spot, to decide the pairing. No serial number is needed....So, guys dont worried u are being numbered or monitored!!!! Really democratic ah???? U lucky, u get BG.....if not u get JG.....Hey Big Game and Junk Game....ok!!!
