Summer Series Info & Rules

Welcome to the start of another season. There are 2 sections to the Go Spike league which is run on the Weymouthpermanent courts every Tuesday between May 8th and July 24th 2018

All standards from novice to expert are catered for

Super Series

This will be the  same format as last year with a King Of the Beach event on the first Tues of each month i.e 29/5,  26/6 and 24/7. This section is aimed  at experienced  and up and coming beach volleyball players who may well want compete on the National tour or other National events now or in the future.

The top 8 individual point scorers during that month will complete for the prize money. On the same evening the next 8 ranked individuals will take part in a similar challenger event.

Ranking points are scored in the following way for both Super Series and Challenger series (NEW!):

Winner of series:  10 points

Runner Up:  8 points

Losing semi finalists:  6 points

Losing Quarter Finalists: 4 points

Winning a pool match: 2 points

Taking part : 1 point

                       

Any player playing in Super Series and who has reached a semi final stage cannot then take part in a Challenger Series event in the same season (except in exceptional circumstances agreed by the organising committee for instance returning from injury, playing with a beginner etc)

Each week players will be expected to referee other matches and the semi finalist team who scored the least points will referee the final.

A Player must compete in a minimum of 2 events in that month to be able to take part in the Super Series Super 8 ( Committee has the right to over rule this in exceptional circumstances i.e bad weather) 

The weekly rankings and overall rankings will be published on the website.

Challenger series

Each week there  will also  be a Challenger series. This event is aimed at players  who are new to beach Volleyball or whose level of play is more appropriate to this Section.  Each player which wins a Challenger series event will be invited to play in the Super Series the following week after this they may choose whether to return to the Challenger Series or stay in the  Super Series. However once team has won  3 matches in  the A series they will not be able to return to the Challenger Series for that season. If a player wins the Challenger for 2 Consecutive weeks they will take part in the Super series the following week.

Each week players will be expected to referee other matches and the semi finalist team who scored the least points will referee the final.

The weekly rankings and overall rankings will be published on the website.

ENTRY FEES

Super Series: Entry Fee  £8 for members.  A side playing in the Super Series because they qualified as previous week’s Challenger winners will only pay that  Challenger Series fee for that week.

Entry fee for the Challenger Series  members:  £5 per week for members

The entry fee goes into the accounts of Weymouth Beach Volleyball club and is used for purchasing  new equipment and  promoting all Beach Volleyball in Weymouth. For instance last season a new net for the courts was purchased cost £200

PLAYER REGISTRATION

Players need to report on the beach between 6-6.30pm on Tuesday evening. The courts will be located near the Boat cafe. Players can enter as many weeks as they like, although obviously the more weeks you compete the better chance you have of a higher ranking

The Club have permission for one car to be on the Esplanade to help organisation. No other cars should be parked on the Esplanade at any time and are in danger of collecting a parking fine.

MATCH ORGANISATION

Each Tuesday at 6.30pm, after entry has closed a format will be devised which gives as much playing time as possible but allows enough time for the final to be completed before dusk. This format is the sole responsibility of the organisers. The organisers will take into account number of teams, time of dusk and weather conditions

 

VOLUNTEERS

For the league to run smoothly a few volunteers are needed each week. There will be a sign up sheet for these jobs on site each week. It is hoped regular attenders will sign up  for a job at least twice per season ( all jobs can be combined with playing)
