The old scoring method can be summarized as follows:
3 points awarded for a win in the finals,
semies and quarters in the main draw (1 point in the consolation)
and 2 points in the events before the quarters (1/2 point in the consolation).
For doubles teams with partners from different team the points are split.
What constitutes a winning team? Most victories? Width vs. Depth? etc.

(note in 2000 we used a slightly different scoring system)
Is there a solution? Perhaps we should contrast various methods and discuss
their respective merits. Let's look at the results from the last 3 Collegiate
tournaments, and compare methods.
First, let's list some possible solutions and list some of their strong and
Some other questions that need be addressed:
- sum. (this was the current method)
- average by the number of players in a team. Although this
eliminates the bias towards large teams, it punishes teams with
a few good players (who can dominate the finals) but a lot of less
- fixed percentage of points per event (this prevents a team can
dominate through winning a large draw)
You can e-mail me to add to the
- should poiints be awarded in the consolations? Currently 1/3 - 1/4
of points are awarded w.r.t. the main draw. Or should they
only be used in the event of a tie?
