First place players receive as many points as there are teams in the tournament
Second place players receive 1st place points minus 2
Third place players receive 2nd place points minus 3
Fourth place players receive 3rd place points minus 4
Fifth place players receive 4th place points minus 5 etc
Any team that qualifies for tournament play at an event but would score 0 points based on final ranking will still receive 1 pt
Only points earned in the "A" division will count towards King/Queen of the Beach rankings. (Points will be separated by division.) A separate ranking system will take place for all athletes 35+ to determine qualifications for King/Queen of the Beach; however, these players will compete in the regular tournament season with all adult athletes in A, B, or Novice Divisions.
The top 5 individuals in each division will be invited to participate in the King/Queen of the Beach Tournament on July 23/24. Any coed events will be used as TIEBREAKERS ONLY and exclusively in the chance that a tie has occurred after the final men's/women's events have concluded. Additionally, coed events will count towards points for the 35+ King/Queen of the Beach.
Players must advance to the next highest division after his/her FIRST win in any division: Novice, B, and A. This applies to Men's, Women's, and Coed tournaments. Once a player earns points in a division, they may not play in a lower division for the remainder of that season. A player may be allowed to play in a lower division than that required by these rules, but that player’s team will not be allowed to advance out of pool play.
