Games State Championships Overview

  • This will be the first year we will crown a Games Champion, There are No separate divisions for the games rounds. All teams will compete together as in usual competitions however we will be crowning both a Mens & Womens Games Champion.
  • There are No prerequisites needed to enter
  • Teams will compete in 4 rounds/games, consisting of 1 x Accuracy, 1 x Black Jack, 1 x Double Up & 1 x Time Trial Games.
  • Champions will be determined based on the number of competitors and the placing you received after each round.  The teams with the highest cumulative score after all 4 games will be determined the Champions.

For eg. if there are 11 Competing teams entered in to the Games Championship, Teams will earn the following points for each round/game. 1st Place will receive 11 points, 2nd place 10 points, 3rd place 9 points, 4th place 8 points, 5th place 7 points and so on with 11th place receiving 1 point.
If places are tied then the points will be split between the tied teams, for eg the 5th & 6th team are tied for 5th Place then they will both receive 6.5 points each calculated as 5th Place receives 7 points, 6th place 6 points which total 13 points this is split between the 2 places so each team receives 6.5 points. 7th place receives 5 points.
