Well then, I've been assigned to hold a two hour 'event' for some of the juniors in my tennis club, and whether its singles, doubles or whatever type of single/double elim or /swiss rounds is up to me. Problem is, there is an odd number turning up today, with that being five players.
So I'm sitting here with about five hours until it'll be on, throwing around a few ideas and writing some stuff down on paper... that I'm not liking. Advice and such would be appreciated. In the end there needs to be one winner who'll be awarded a trophy... so what would you do?
Single elim is too short and not practical for this. Double elimination brackets seem better, although I don't know if that would be good with a number of five entrants? I may be able to get a 6th person in as a "sub", who will really just be filler and not be there to try and win.
Five of 'em... ugh. I was thinking maybe some doubles games which then lead up to picking the top 4 of 'em who play semis and then a final?
Since it is only 2 hours, most likely each regular 'match' will be best of 3 service games or a super-tiebreaker.
Thoughts please? I could use the help.
