Steps for preparing the draw:

Currently at Step 10

 

Step 1 – Finalise the teams for each group.

Step 2 – Do a best possible fit for teams into groups for each weekend
NOTE: Step 2 aims at getting the best possible travel for each team
- regardless of court availability or equal sharing - that happens in Step 3
The groupings only show where each team possibly travel to – not who they would actually play.
 The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 represent the different weekends but do NOT mean that will be the weekends in actual order
- these will change in Step 3 and 4

Step 3 – Check the availability of courts from the entry forms and re-adjust the results of Step 2
Start with the worst groups from Step 2.

Step 4 – Analyze the ratio of court assignments for Associations in relation to the number of teams entered and with each other
Re-adjust the results of Step 3

Step 5 - Confirm with Associations by email, that assigned courts are available
If not, re-adjust the results of Step 4 and re-email affected Associations for court confirmation

Step 6 – Prepare a draft draw showing locations and dates

Step 7 – Prepare a draft draw showing actual ties to be played

Step 8 – Perform a full review of each Division

Step 9 – Release the final draft version for Association approval – all the rest (except Seniors Div 1 & 2)
(
Any Association shall have the right of appeal to Badminton NZ.  Such appeal shall be made in writing within 14 days of notification of the draw and be supported by a statement of case – By Law 3(e))

Step 10 – Release the final version
