Pool play format:
4 courts, 5 referees, 16 teams, 37 matches 4 pools of 4 teams
For pools of 4 teams, the best of 3 sets will win matches. Each non-deciding set will be won by the team that first scores 25 points with a minimum 2-point advantage (no scoring cap). If there is a deciding set, it will be won by the team that first scores 15 points with a minimum 2-point advantage (no scoring cap). Change sides when a team earns 8 points. A point will be scored on each rally. If the receiving team wins the rally, they score a point and gain the serve.
Match 1 Match 2 Match 3 Match 4 Match 5 Match 6 [team in () refs] 1 vs. 3 (2) 2 vs. 4 (1) 1 vs. 4 (3) 2 vs. 3 (1) 3 vs. 4 (2) 1 vs. 2 (4) Teams from the same club, regardless of seed, should not be placed in the same pool.
All teams advance. All teams must be ranked within their pools based on match percentage first. For any ties, use the tie-breaking procedure below. All first-place and second-place teams to the Gold playoffs. All third-place teams to the Silver playoffs. All fourth-place teams to the Bronze playoffs. Playoff positions on the tournament brackets will be based on pool finish to avoid teams from the same pool playing each other in the first round.
Pool A Seeds 1, 8, 9, 16
Pool B Seeds 2, 7, 10, 15
Pool C Seeds 3, 6, 11, 14
Pool D Seeds 4, 5, 12, 13
Since all teams advance to playoffs, ties will not be decided by playing a set. 1. If 2 teams from the same pool are tied, their head to head match determines their order of finish. 2. If 3 teams from the same pool are tied after match and set % and point differential have been calculated, a coin flip will determine their order of finish.
Playoffs and Prizes:
All teams will make a playoff bracket. 1st and 2nd place in each pool will advance to the Gold Bracket. 3rd Place in all pools will advance to a Silver bracket. 4th place in all pools will advance to a Bronze Bracket. Prizes will be awared to First and Second Place in the Gold Bracket and First Place in the Silver Bracket.
