The Toowoomba Titans are our representative team. This year they will be playing in our own Clash of the Titans tournament, Dragons Chalice, and State Championships. More details will be published on the web site.
Here is the draw for this week. I had to shuffle a couple of games so teams that had duty last week wouldn't have it this week. I have put a friendly between MashUps and Lemmings on ct 6 at - the two bye teams - so please advise if you are unavailable. Could Neo-Tokyo provide just one scorer on this court as well as do duty on ct 5. We will not be using ct 7 this week as 2 teams have asked for the night off for Origin.
6pm ct 1 Sharks v Beard of Bees (Can U Dig It) (A bronze)
ct 2 High 5s v Avengers (HasBeens) (B gold)
ct 3 Mixed Nuts v Drink Spikers (Spikedelic) (C bronze)
ct 4 How I set your mother v Uni Bums (I'd Hit That)
ct 5 TryHards v 50 Shades of Blue (Neo-Tokyo)
ct 6 MashUps V Lemmings (Neo -Tokyo)
7pm ct 1 Groovers v Can U Dig It (Beard of Bees) (B bronze)
ct 2 Rolling Thunder v Ooska (Avengers) (A gold)
ct 3 Wii Not Fit v Kiss My Ace (Mixed Nuts) (C gold)
ct 4 I'd Hit That v HasBeens (How I set your mother)
ct 5 J B Hornets v Neo Tokyo (50 Shades)
Ct 6 Excel Achievers v Spikedelic (TryHards)
Please check carefully for duties - if you didn't have it last week you should have it this week. Also if you have nominated some-one for an award please check with me before you leave as we would like to have award winners at the presentation after the games. please be on time so games can get started on time and we can finish a few minutes early. People in the yellow and green gyms should come straight down to the blue gym if they are staying for the presentation.
Good luck all
Here is the draw for Semi Finals. I have only had one team pull out from Origin night matches at this stage but it will mean a bye for a team in C grade so if some-one else not in the finals wants that bye let me know. All grades had to go to a points for and against ratio for some final positions, and even those were really close, so a few teams may be disappointed they didn't make it. All byes counted as a win so 4pts. There will be a few teams moving up a grade so next season may be easier to make the finals.
There are two changes to the tentative finals draw as teams asked for their game to be early this week if possible. I have also put the A & B grade byes on ct 7 as a friendly so can Excel Achievers just provide a scorer for that court as well as ct 6. Cts 1-3 have all the finals matches.
7pm Ct 1 Avengers v Groovers (Ooska)
Ct 2 High 5s v Can You Dig It (Rolling Thunder)
Ct 3 Wii Not Fit v Mixed Nuts (Kiss My Ace)
Ct 4 TryHards v Uni Bums (MashUps)
Ct 5 Smackin' Aces v JB Hornets (Lemmings)
Ct 6 Sunny East v Spikedelic (Excel Achievers)
Ct 7 I'd Hit That v How I set your mother (Excel Achievers)
8pm Ct 1 Ooska v Beard of Bees (Groovers)
Ct 2 Rolling Thunder v Sharks (High 5s)
Ct 3 Kiss My Ace v Drink Spikers (Wii Not Fit)
Ct 4 HasBeens v MashUps (Uni Bums)
Ct 5 50 Shades of Blue v Lemmings (JB Hornets)
Ct 6 Excel Achievers v Neo Tokyo (Sunny East)
Teams may have had duty last week as well as this week but they won't have it the next week. If you see any errors pleas contact me.
Remember you must have 2 women on the court in a finals play-off match and players must have played at least 3 matches in that team. This only applies to those teams in the finals.
Cheers and good luck
Semi Finals Format
1st Plays 4th, 2nd plays 3rd.
Winners play off for the Gold medal the following week. Losers play off for Bronze.
The exception to this is Men's B Grade where 2nd will play 3rd - the winner will play 1st next week for the Gold Medal. There is no Bronze medal for this division.
5th will play 6th, and 7th will play 8th. These teams will not play on the final night - only medal matches will be played.
There are a couple of teams that are in last place in a division with an odd number of teams, unfortunately they won't have any more games this season.
ALL matches this week are time limited, best of 5 sets - which is the same as every week.
Similar to last season, senior grade Semi Finals matches won't be untimed this season. We have too many school teams playing in our senior competition so we need to ensure there are some limits on how late the night can go. Senior matches in the Blue gym will run for a maximum of 90 minutes.
The first senior match will start at 6:40pm and the 2nd match will be scheduled to start at 8:00pm. The 2nd match is scheduled to start earlier than the 90 minutes in case the first game finishes early. The latest time that the 2nd match may start is at 8:30pm and the very latest it can finish is at 10:10pm.
The draw is showing the start time for the games at 7:50pm which is supposed to be 8:00pm - I just don't have time to fix it right now.
Please Note: players must have played 3 games to be eligible for finals. Playing ineligible players will result in a forfeit. During the regular season I am more willing to allow exceptions to avoid forfeits, this is not the case during finals. If you are not sure then you need to check with me before taking the court.
There are some players that haven't paid yet - players who haven't paid are also ineligible to play finals.
Good luck to everyone and please try to remember that we're not playing for sheep stations. Abuse of referees or official is not going to be tolerated.
