Doubles draw took place on 15 July 2018, live on Periscope

Signup sheet

If you don't have a partner, you can leave a space open to be filled by another player. Knockout draw will take place at around 4pm on 14 June 2018

Transfer rules

  1. Over the four rounds, both players should be able to stand by their pairing. In the event that one or more players can no longer access the internet for a prolonged period, changes to your team line-up are permitted between rounds, according to the following rules
  2. Players can only play for one team, i.e. any player already in the Doubles is "cup-tied" from playing for any other team in the tournament, even in a later round
  3. Once each round starts, the composition of each team cannot be changed for that round
  4. If a team progresses to the next round, a team member may request (by tweet or DM to @hashfootery) to be replaced by a new recruit (with no previous involvement in the tournament) before the kickoff of the first match in the next round

In the event of a tie...

  1. the team with the greater number of "3 pointers" in the current round is deemed the winner;
  2. if still tied, the team with more points from the previous round is deemed the winner;
  3. if still tied, the team with the greater number of "3 pointers" in the previous round is deemed the winner;
  4. NEW (this is a bit complicated, but bear with me) if still tied, calculate the sum of each player's predicted scores for this round, average this across each team and the team closest to the sum of the actual scores is deemed the winner
  5. if still tied, repeat these same tie-breakers for each round before until a winner can be declared
  6. in the highly unlikely event that a winning team cannot be determined, a decision will be made by @downwithdesign, @kirstieh and @gerrymulvenna
