How to create a Fixture List for your league. (updated 20/8/13)

  Working out Fixture Lists has been described as the most time-consuming task ever faced by a league secretary. The task is made even more difficult when leagues consist of one or more clubs with two or more teams, and a requirement that their home matches must not clash.

  The fixture Lists below are for leagues with teams numbering from 6 to 16 per division. Just substitute a number for a team when preparing your own league fixture lists. When there is an odd number of teams in the league (e.g. 9) select the next list above (e.g. 10) and the additional number should represent a 'bye'. The list represents half the season and should be reversed for the second half.

  When a club has two teams, Look at Week One, and ensure that the first team is represented by the number 1 on the list (in the home column) and the second team is represented by the bottom number on the away column. If a second club has two teams then they should take the number in the home column on the second row, and the second team should take the number on the 'second row up' in the away column.

  If, as sometimes happens, a club has more than two teams, or teams in more than one division, or a mixture of the two, follow 'sentence 1' of the paragraph above for the first two teams. For the second two teams, follow the same rule but substitute the home & away fixtures so that you have two teams at home and two teams away for each week.

  This graph shows how to successfully create a fixture including a club with 4 teams and a pub with 2 teams.

  If team 4 from the Club were in a second division, this would not cause a problem. Just place them in the same position as if they were in division 1, but place their name in the division 2 fixture. This would ensure that there would still be only two teams at home in any one week.

Timing of Competitions

  It is vital for any organiser to know roughly how long a tournament is likely to take to be played. The answer will depend on the standard of those taking part, but the following is a useful rough guide.

  Organisers should allow 15 minutes for a game consisting of three legs of 501. Shorter or Greater distances should be calculated at the rate of minus or plus 1 minute per leg, i.e. three minutes per game.

Three legs of 301 - average time 9 minutes
Three legs of 401 - average time 12 minutes
Three legs of 501 - average time 15 minutes
Three legs of 601 - average time 18 minutes
Three legs of 701 - average time 21 minutes
Three legs of 1001 - average time 30 minutes

  Number of boards and time required to get down to one winner (501 legs).

16 - 40 players (4 boards) 1 - 2½ hrs
41 - 80 players (4 boards) 2½ - 2¾ hrs
16 - 40 players (8 boards) ¾ - 1¾ hrs
41 - 80 players (8 boards) 1¾ - 2½ hrs
81 - 128 players (8 boards) 2½ - 3¼ hrs
129 - 160 players (16 boards) 1¾ - 2¾ hrs
161 - 256 players (16 boards) 2¼ - 2¾ hrs
257 - 320 players (32 boards) 1¾ - 2¼ hrs
321 - 512 players (32 boards) 2¼ - 3¾ hrs
