Qualifying Rating & Seeding
The qualifying rating is used to ensure teams are balanced. The qualifying rating will be used to seed teams. For a three-person team, the qualifying rating is determined by taking the average rating of the three players. For a four-person team, the qualifying rating is calculated by taking the average rating of the three lowest rated players. For a five-person team, the qualifying rating is calculated by taking the average rating of the middle three players.
*Please note that the Tournament Committee reserves the right to adjust these limits where necessary. Ratings from December 27th will be used for qualifying rating calculations and ratings from January 24th will be used for seeding
