Amsterdam Rollerbasketball Tournament 2010


Posted on: February 24, 2010

The first draft of the schedule is finished! Check it out if you want to see who you’ll be playing. We still have to finish determining who will referee which games and when, so that everybody gets their fair share of matches to arbiter.

The tournament will have three rounds:

Round 1 – 9:30-13:00

First, we divide everybody into three pools: A,B and C, more or less of equal strength. Each pool has four teams in it. Every team in each pool plays every other team in the same pool, in round-robin fashion. So: A1 plays A2, A3 and A4, for instance.

Lunch – 13:00 – 14:00

Time to enjoy a lovely pasta salad, or whatever else you want to treat yourself to!

Round 2 – 14:00 – 15:00

Next round is an elimination round! Lose a game in this round and you won’t be in the top three for sure.

The two best teams of the pools from round 1 pool go into a new pool, consisting of six teams. The remaining six teams go into another pool. The best team of pool A plays against the number 2 of pool B. The best team of pool B plays against the number 2 of pool C. Finally the best team of pool C plays against the number 2 of pool A. The winners of these matches go into the top pool of round 3. The losers go into the second pool of round 3. So the six teams of the first pool of round 3 are split up into two pools, each containing three teams.

For the other pool of six things go completely analogously: this pool is also split up into two pools for round 3.

Round 3 – 15:30 – 18:30

In this round we go back to round-robin, this time for four pools. Every team in each pool plays the other two teams in this pool.

Whoever wins the top pool is the champion for this tournament. Whoever wins in the second pool is number 4 in the tournament, etc.

Clear? 😉  Feel free to ask any questions, if it’s not and I’ll do my best to clarify. Or you just let it all happen, we’ll tell you where and when to play. You don’t need to understand to become champion :-). The beautiful thing about this schedule: everybody plays six matches, win or lose!

Note, this schedule is pretty certain, but we might make some last minute changes.
