The Esprit Teams is an open 2-stage event for teams with five to ten members. Up to one third of the team members (including the captain) may be designated as Reserve players.

More information about this event is available on the rules page

Team captains are responsible for signing up their team members. Signups may be edited (players added or deleted) up until the tournament begins.
Team members confirm their signups on MyPage

Stage 1: Played over 6 weeks

Each team (regardless of the number of team members) will play sixty 11-point matches.

Host Assignments: One player in each match is assigned by the host from Active members of opposing teams.
The other player is assigned by the team captain with the the following limitations:

No active member of a team should play more than twice the number of matches of another active member.
Reserve members are limited to play no more matches than any active member.

Stage II: Each round will be conducted over 2 weeks.

8 team elimination series - 13 pt matches. Finals 15pt matches.

Each pair of teams will be allocated 10 matches - 10 Home and 10 Away matches with the top ranked team assigned an extra home match.

no active member of a team should play more than twice the number of matches of any other active (non-reserve) member.

Consolation: The remaining teams from Stage I will enter an elimination Consolation bracket. Each round will be conducted over 2 weeks.

8 team elimination series - 11 pt matches. Finals 13pt matches.

The losing teams in Round 1 of Stage II will enter the Consolation in Round 2 to play the winning teams from Consolation Round 1 so that there will be 4 rounds total.


Reserve Players: Players may be marked as Reserves on the Captain's signup page by unchecking the Active box. These players do not receive initial assignments by the host and are assigned by the Captain as he sees fit provided the number of matches does not exceed the number of any Active (non-reserve) player in either Stage I or Stage II.

Replacement rule: When a player, due to unforseen circumstances is unable to play a match or forced to withdraw, matches may be reallocated by consulation with the host and the opposing team to players of approximately equal or lesser ability within the team, subject to the limitations mentioned above.

Appeals committee: Where a team captain disputes the replacement of a player or a decision by the host, an appeals committee will vote on the matter. This committee will be composed of respected players who are non-participants.

Further details are available in the rules.

Your host for this event is Cindy (cindybel)


Signups will close 14th February. Host assignments will be posted immediately. Captains will have one week to complete assignments and play will commence on February 21st.
