Format and Rules

At the moment, the format of the event is created as if 25 teams, including Ukraine, will join the event, while this format can be adjusted for 24 teams, in case that Ukarine will not be able to join.

Full list of registered teams and their World ranking can be found at the Teams page.

Games in Round One
Schedule of Play will be published on a separate page in early July where every game will be listed.

All Format options were drawn randomly for each game ensuring no bias towards any team or seed. As far as is possible to judge before the event there is no advantage for any team in playing a specific set of formats on specific courses.

Rules for Team selection
30 minutes before each Game is due to start the Team Captain shall register the players chosen to play for that round.

Where teams have registered more than 6 players they can substitute those players into any match in any Game as long as they meet the criteria for the Divisions in which they play. FPO and MP40 players may play in MPO as long as the criteria for those divisions are also met. All MPO and FPO players will be seeded according to their PDGA rating relative to all other MPO and FPO players from their team who are chosen to play in a specific match. If an MPO, FPO or MPM player does not have a PDGA rating they will be allocated the 75th centile rating from July 15th 2022.

This format allows all teams to have a minimum of 5 matches in Round One (1) and a minimum of 9 in the event. Medallists will have played a minimum of 10 matches by Saturday afternoon. Each player also gets to play with every other member of their team in Doubles throughout the event and plays a minimum of 3 times in Singles and 7 times in Doubles. It also allows for the substitutions (as described above) to be made by teams that have more than the minimum 6 players in their squad.

WFDF Disc Golf Committee believes this is a unique format that meets the standards of Inclusion and Equality expected of its organisation.

Points System
Every match in each game is important and points will be awarded so that all players are rewarded for their own individual and team efforts.

Points are awarded for every game. Results for Round 1 will be an accumulation of points against all teams in all games in their Pool to decide the Matches for Round 2.

All Games Singles or Doubles - will be worth 2 pts for a win; 1 pt for a draw.

So every Game in Round 1 has a potential of 8 points per team.

The Points system will also be used in all further Rounds to decide on how a team progresses through the event.

Tie Breaks
If there is a 2-way tie on points after Round 1 has been completed then Head to Head results of points won will count first. If still a tie then Match-play points scored in Doubles will be used. If still a tie then scores in Match play points scored in Singles will be used. If still a tie then a play off will be held. For Round 1 this will be between MPO1 players playing in Round 1 starting on hole 1 of Course A.

If a 3-way or more tie on points after a Round  has been completed then points in games between those three or more teams will be calculated. If there is a clear 1st, 2nd,  3rd etc in the group then those results stand. If after points in games between those 3 or more teams there are 2 teams tied then the Head to Head result will count first.

However, If still a tie between all teams then Match-play points scored in Doubles will be used between all 3 or more teams. If still a tie then scores in Singles will be used. If still a tie then a play off will be held.  For Round 1 this will be between MPO1 players who played in the last game of Round 1starting on hole 18.

Round 2
Thursday 14.30

Format for Round 2 Games
