Doubles teams will be formed by the organizers based on skill level, such that each team has one advanced player and one novice player (For example, Ranks 1 & 16, 2 & 15, 3 & 14, etc). This levels the playing field, provides amateur players an opportunity to learn from top local players first hand and take their game to the next level, and ofcourse create a fun and competitive atmosphere.
Each match will comprise of 1 game, which is played for 45 minutes or 8 boards or 25 points, whichever happens first.
