Hi All, please find results & averages for round 1 NJL. For those checking this out I must first explain the format of the event to give a perspective of what the placings mean. Bare with me, here we go! Firstly the higher perceived standards of the teams are placed in Div 2 and the lower perceived teams are placed in Div 1. The top placed teams from Div 2 after this round go up to Div 1 and the 2 bottom placed teams in Div 1 go down to Div 2, are you following me so far! this is the case for session 2 on the 27th November, for session 3 on the 22nd January 2022 only the top team of Div 2 goes up and the bottom team of Div 1 goes down, leaving all the strongest teams in Div 1 and the remaining teams in Div 2 for the final session on 26th February. This format means all the teams and all the players compete with everybody regardless of standard and also provides a final event to play for winner and runners up positions and medals for their respective Divisions.
Matt took out the number 1 and number 3 seeds in his age group band and finished a very creditable 3rd overall winning 6 out 7 of his matches. Ben likewise had a good day and picked up a silver medal in his age group band. Well done guys a very good start to the season.
