The Match Play format is great when you are wanting to enter in results from and event without necessarily a strict format. For events such as; camps & clinics, leagues, or team events, use the match play format to enter in results. Note the information below can also be done for doubles.
Once registration has closed you are able to create your draws. Here we will show you how to create the draws for a Match Play.
To get started, select the "Create Draws" button on your event page, seen here:
When the draw creation page opens, you'll see all the players who have registered under the division you created under the Not Placed tab on the left of the screen. Hint: You may need to click the arrow to expand the list to view the players.
You will first want to select how many matches you will be entering in results for. To do this, click "Edit" at the top of the page by the draw name and select your draw size based on the number of matches you will need to input results for.
Hint: If you are unsure how many matches you will be entering, aim high as it is okay to leave empty match boxes! You can also always add additional match play draws if you run out of match boxes!
Once you update the size of the draw, you can then place the players in lines that compete against one another. To add the players, click on the line in the match box you would like to add the player to, then type in, and select their name.
Once you have the players placed in the draw to your liking, you can then enter in times, dates, and locations for each match. You have the option to do this by round by clicking the "Set Location" and "Date & Time” under the round or you can do it by individual matches by clicking the "Set Date & Time" and "Set Location" on the match details box. Here is the information you will be asked to complete:
Once the times are entered, you can then choose to Publish the draws. Publishing draws makes them visible to anyone viewing the main event page. To Publish the draws, click the "Publish" button on the top right of the page, and select each draw you would like to Publish. Please note that only the draws that are checked will be published.
Hint: If you ever need to unpublish the draw, uncheck the boxes and click publish. Only draws checked will continue to be published.
Once the draws have been published, you will then be taken to the event homepage. There you can scroll down and click on the "Draws" tab to view the draws. Here you can filter through the published draws and print your draws.
Congrats, you've just created your Match Play event!
