2022 Wimbledon SKAN Contest

#1

Post by PeterSkan »

Allo Allo Allo ... and welcome to the 2022 Wimbledon SKAN Contest.

This is a TAT 2.0 medal event, though it is hosted through a third party site. The SKANs have been active for over 15 years!

All posters here are welcome to participate. Special thanks to TAT's mods for your support!! Here is the link to the team entry page [if you have any trouble with it let me know and we'll figure it out]:

https://tennisgamers.com/board/slams/sk ... kanCanTest

I set up the entry board on the site. This was my first time doing that and I don't guarantee that I got everything pitch perfect. But it seems to be working just fine so far.

**VERY IMPORTANT**

Take great care in making sure you are choosing players based on their rankings and not their seedings. With all the players missing from the tournament, it's easy to wind up with a player different than what you intended. Please consult the rankings table at the bottom of the entry page.
If for whatever reason you can't post on the site, post your teams here or PM me and I will post them for you.

Here's a quick overview of what you do and how it works:

1. The contest winner will be the poster whose registered team earns the highest number of points as of the conclusion of the tournament.

2. Valid entries consist of a team of 6 players [3 men and 3 women] all of whom must be included in the official tournament draw.

3. Rule 3 [The 30-rank rule]: The sum total of the players ranking numbers must be no less than 30, minimum 15 for ATP and 15 for WTA. Unique numbers for players with lower rankings [e.g. ATP #75] are assigned by the contest admins. Extremely Important: the SKAN uses current rankings and not event seedings. The entry page includes a table with the current rankings for reference purposes.

4. The order of your 6-named players is the most important factor in compiling your team. It represents your priority for purposes of earning domination points.

Sample Entry:

Team WimbySKAN

1. ATP Rank 3 [Djokovic]
2. ATP Rank 4 [Nadal]
3. WTA Rank 4 [Badosa]
4. WTA Rank 5 [Sakkari]
5. WTA Rank 27 [Trevisan]
6. ATP Rank 14 [Fritz]

Total = 21 for ATP + 36 for WTA ( = 57 )

Cheerleader(s): Wee Willy

5. You can't name a team consisting of the same players in the same order as a team already entered. However, you can enter a team consisting of the same players as another team, provided those players are in a different order.

6. What's a team without a cheerleading squad? So go ahead and nominate a cheerleader(s), just for fun. Be creative!

7. Registered members of http://www.tennisgamers.com can modify their teams any number of times up to the start of play, after which any further change will be ignored by the program.

8. Assign a name to your team. You can edit the team name if you wish. Have fun with it!

SCORING

OK - here are the basics:

1. Domination Points:

These are based on how soundly your players beat their opponents. A key factor in calculating these points is how high you have seeded them [placed them] in your team. For example, if you seed Exampleova 2nd in your team and she thrashes a player 6-0 6-0, you will get 60 points; however, if you seeded her 5th in your team, you will only get 24 points for that same score. If your player loses, you will lose the corresponding Domination points. No winning player will be penalized for losing more games than their opponent. In such case, the default is 0 point.

2. Victory Points

You get additional points whenever your players advance to the next round [10 for round 1, 20 for round 2, 30 for round 3, 50 for round 4, 80 for Round 5, etc.]. Catch on?

3. Quality Points

You get further points when your player defeats an opponent who is in the top-32 in the Ranking. The number of points is based on how highly the opponent is ranked. For example, if your player defeats the 20th ranked player, you get 13 Quality points [33 - 20].

Good luck to all contestants!! 8-)

No problem ...

The mods at that site seem to be missing in action. I asked for the contest to be set up several days ago and heard nothing back. So I figured it out and set it up myself for the first time. But validating/authorizing new members over there is outside my scope. I can, however, enter any team, so send your picks my way and you'll be good to go ...
