Player Ranking

2021-2022 NBVA Championship Points Tables

  • The NBVA Series 2021-2022 runs from September 2021 to March 2022.
  • The team seeding of NBVA tournaments is based on the average of the players’ individual seeding scores.
  • The individual seeding score is the player’s average ranking points from their last 3 results within the 13 months preceding the current event date (current seeding period).
  • If a player has less than 3 results in this period, their score will be derated by 10%.
  • If a player has no results in this period, then the same evaluation will be done for up to 2 prior seeding periods until a valid result is found. The prior seeding periods are the periods between 12 and 25 months, then 24 and 37 months prior to the current event date.
  • When points are used from one of these prior periods, a further 15% derating of the seeding score will be incurred.
  • If no results are found within the seeding periods, a player will have a seeding score of zero.
  • If a player with no seeding score partners up with a player with a seeding score – a team average will be calculated using half points for player with none.
  • The winner of A will get a spot in AA and the winner of AA will get a spot in AAA for the next tournament (only if the two players play together again in the next event).
  • If the tournament is oversubscribed members will have priority over non-members.
  • The Championship will be decided by counting points from all the NBVA tournaments of the 2021-2022 season.  Note: points from the NBVA Championships are worth 1.5 x points
  • Mixed tournament results do not count towards any individual seeding score or points for the Championship.
  • Wild cards may be awarded under discretion of the NBVA committee.  Wild card entry teams can send an email to info@nbva.org.au including details supporting their request by providing tournament results and career highlights by Wednesday (12pm) before a tournament.
Non-Competitive Entry Election Policy
  • The aim of a non-competitive entry is to encourage experienced players to mentor and share their competition experience with a current junior player by combining as a team within a competition environment.
  • A non-competitive entry for a mentor player allows them to team up with a junior player in a competition without concern for any adverse effects the team result may otherwise have on the mentor player’s future seeding point calculations.
  • A player may exercise the option to elect to have their entry in a competition classed as a non-competitive entry if they partner with a current junior player. Electing to take this option means that the result achieved in the applicable competition will simply be excluded from both team member’s future seeding calculations.
  • If a player elects to have their entry classed as non-competitive this should be made known to the NBVA via email info@nbva.org.au prior to the day of competition.

Notes for 2021-2022 24 team OctX draw points scheme: Some of the driving factors for the new 24 team draw and its points scheme above are as follows:

  • A transition path to incorporating the ABVRS as required by VNSW and VA in order for NBVA tournament sanctioning
  • To develop and promote a fair and reasonable, merit-based, seeding system
  • Timely up and down progression (promotion, and demotion) through the divisions, via crossovers on the day, and points overlap between the days
  • Taking also into account that, at present, a player cannot choose which NBVA division they would like to enter

The 2021-2022 24 team OctX draw points scheme is specifically designed to work for a 24 team draw, and further, the equal points awarded (overlap) for the top octet of Div 2 and the last octet of Div 1 (similarly with Div 3 & Div 2) are in line with the overlap that is already in place between Qualifier B tournament and the B division of the previous Sunday 8 team draw tournament scheme.

The above points scheme provides sufficient overlap in points so that the seeding averaging will promote movement between the divisions in a reasonable timeframe.

The averaging of seeding together with the points overlap between divisions will mean that after the first event played under this scheme, only the first and second-placed teams in the lower division should naturally progress to the division above in their next tournament and be seeded in 21st and 24th position respectively or thereabouts – all other things being equal (i.e. there are a lot of other variable factors that can come into play here),  after which the 3-result seeding averaging will continue to work to achieve the desired result of moving the competitors between adjacent divisions in a timely manner.
