Profitable Singles Tournaments
Singles is the game most commonly seen on television yet it is rarely played in club tournaments. The reasons for this are obvious.
Would your club be interested if you could run a lively one day tournament for 60 singles players with no markers required? The secret of a singles tournament is to have the players do the marking
In a one day singles tournament each player plays six games of six ends and marks three games. With games of six ends there is time for the top eight to play knockouts of 8 ends to decide the winner of the day We found that most of the participants stayed to see the knockouts and many volunteered to mark them
You can read about my experience running such a tournament on this link
I have found that players who have taken part in these days enjoy them and many want to play it again, but it is hard to convince those who have not seen the day that it works! I have just had to cancel a half day planned for October this year
If your club would like to take the bold step of running a one day singles please contact me and I will give you help with the draw. I have files for a draw for these tournaments for from 18 to 60 players and editable scorecards
