Warwickshire Pairs League Online (WPLO) - Current & Next Series
Warwickshire Pairs League Online (WPLO) - Current & Next Series

With the move to online, the Competitions Committee have now been able to review the format of WPLO taking into account some of the past feedback received that, until the move online, were previously unable to implement for logistical reasons.  One of these is the desire to play more boards per match in Division A and Division B, but this was not the feeling of players in Division C.  To try to accommodate all, as you may recall that, prior to lockdown we addressed this by playing 3 sessions (evenings) of 9 board matches and 2 sessions of 14 board matches.  The reason for this was because playing a different number of boards across the 3 divisions was a recipe for disaster and so we avoided it.  However, there are no risks of doing this online, so we are pleased to be able to provide something that has been long sought after by many, along with some other amendments. 

The formation for WPLO from February 2022 will, therefore, be as follows:

Divisions A & B
The aim is to run with 7 Tables (14 pairs) in each playing 2 x 12 board matches per session (evening)

Division C
The aim is to run 6+ Tables (12+ pairs) continuing to play 3 x 8 board matches per session.

The Swiss will continue to be reset after the 3rd session in all divisions – this means that you cannot play the same pair twice in the first three sessions of a series (a series is each of the 5 sessions Sept-Jan then Feb-June), nor in the last two sessions of a series, but you can play the same pair in the final two sessions that you already played in the first three sessions.

In order to achieve the desired number of tables in Divisions A and B from February 2022, the following will apply to the current series promotion relegations following the January session with any new entrants being considered in the usual way:

  1. Division A – 4 pairs will be demoted to Division B.
  2. Division B – 2 pairs will be promoted to Division A.
  3. Division C – A line will be drawn on the Division B ranking list under 12th place, with the players below 12th place forming the new Division C.

Promotion/Relegation from February 2022 will be 3 pairs up and 3 pairs down.

The Competitions Committee is also reviewing the rules regarding sitouts/pair offs and substitutes when a player, or pair, is unable to make one of the sessions, and is considering reintroducing the requirement to either play, substitute one or both players, or pair off.  A pair off is when a pair joins up with another pair in the same divisions to sitout the same session.  The current provision is that players can send substitutes or sitout.  If players choose to sitout this can result in a half table, which is not ideal.  If you have any strong feeling on the position of substitutes, pair offs etc, please do feedback as soon as possible; we will be making a final decision between sessions 3 and 4 of this series.

Thank you.
