Men’s President’s Cup Scoring/Seeding Rules

Players must be a resident of Region VI. Team members will be selected, first, on the basis of performance in PCQ tournaments within the region and, second, on the basis of performance in PCQ events outside the region. In the event that these criteria do not clearly indicate the appropriate players to be selected, the decision shall be made by the  Region President, based on overall participation, performance and availability.  The Captain will be responsible for team order.  Performance in PCQ events will not necessarily determine order. For example; a selected team may play anywhere from 1-5.

  6. The president cup points will be determined in accordance to the APTA’s system of strength of the tournament multiplied by the results of play in the tournament. Players may play with out-of-region players and receive PCQ points. Any NRT points earned during the year will be added to local PCQ points earned. (See below.)
  7. In the event of a tie at season’s end for the President’s Cup Team, the tie will be broken by 1. Head to head results. 2. If there are not head to head results, or if the tie is between unpaired individuals, , the tie will be broken with the flip of a coin.
  8. If there are not 6 teams that have qualified, then the Captain will choose as many players as needed to complete the five-team roster and 2 substitutes (see new substitute rules on the APTA web site.) Any Region VI team may be selected regardless of points. The team may consist of players who do not normally play together.
  9. Order of play will be determined by the Captain, and not necessarily by the order of finish based on accumulated points.
