Here are the draws for the Premier and Division grades. (Premier is analogous to Premier 1 last year while Divisions 1, 2, and 3 are analogous to last year’s Premier 2, 3, and 4.)
A note for the Division grades is the scoring system (points per team for each night) which are noted at the bottom of the draw sheet:
- 11-0 & 10-1 Winner 5 pts / Loser 0 pts
- 9-2, 8-3, 7-4 Winner 4 pts / Loser 1 pt
- 6-5 Winner 3pts / Loser 2 pts
NB: If a team wins all seven of their contests, and hasn’t had points taken off for disciplinary reasons, they will win the grade even if another team has accrued more points overall.
For Premier it is simply 1 point for a win, 0 for a loss.
Refer to the documents for full details.
For the Division grades there is one series of 7 weeks, then a grade champs, then a second series – teams are re-entered for the second series so there could well be differences in teams from series 1 and series 2. For the Premier grade, there are three rounds with the same teams throughout.
