General information about the Ladder

 

The Ladder is the top level of competition at our club.

Draws take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays although, typically, a person would only play on one of those days during any given week.

This season 12 teams are competing for the overall club championship.
Players remain part of the same team during the entire season.

The convener for the Ladder is Jay Oland.

Rules

 

The following rules will be applied in the Ladder.

  • points: for teams in Group “A” - 10 for a win, 6 for a loss, 0 for a default
                 for teams in Group “B” -  9 for a win, 5 for a loss, 0 for a default
  • in Round 1 all teams play a complete round robin schedule in Group “A” but only 5 points are awarded for a loss
  • each game is eight ends long
  • in case of a tied game after eight ends, a full extra end must be played to determine the winning team
  • a team that does not have a minimum of two of its permanent members will lose by default, as per CCA rules
  • if a team does not have at least two of its permanent members the game can be rescheduled but must be completed before the end of the current round
  • the top 6 teams in the overall standings at the end of each round will play in Group “A” in the following round. Each team starts a new round with half the points it had in the overall standings at the end of the previous round.
  • the playoff format information is posted below

Time Rule

For games that start at 6:50 pm, the 8th end can be started ONLY if the first rock can be delivered before 8:50 pm. If it is later than 8:50 pm and the game is not tied then it is considered complete. If the game is tied then the 8th end is played with only one rock per team (sweeping is permitted and any player can throw the rock).
