How it Works
Phase 1: (16th January to 31st July):
Registrations for initial draw of the ladder will end on Friday 13th January 2023. The ladder will then start on Monday 16th January 2023, with the last match to be played before the 31th of July 2023, on which day the ladder ranking/s become final. In this phase, players can challenge players that are 7 places above them and will have 14 days to play the challenge.
There will be no matches in August so the ladder will have a 1 month pause.
Phase 2: (1st September – 31st October):
Players who play a minimum of 10 matches in Phase 1 will be eligible to move to phase 2. Mini ladders of 10 players will be created, based on the final ranking achieved by the 31st of July (Ladder 1 with players ending 1-10, Ladder 2 11-20, etc). During phase 2, players can challenge up to 10 places above them and challenges need to be completed within 10 days. The last match of phase 2 can be played on the 31st of October, after which ladder rankings in each division will be final.
Phase 3: K/O (6th to 26th November)
The top 8 players of each division will qualify for the final phase which will be a K/O competition starting from Quarter Final stage. Pairings will be determined by the ladder position of each player at the end of Phase 2. (Players 1 and 2 will be seeded).
Week 1 (6th to 12th Nov) – Quarter Finals
Week 2 (13th to 19th Nov) – Semi Finals of the Main Draw and the Plate
Week 3 (20th to 26th Nov) – Finals of the Main Draw and the Plate
There will be no matches in December.
