Determination of Playoff Teams

SRVA Handbook VII.B (Page 12-13)

VII.     DETERMINATION OF PLAYOFF TEAMS

Teams qualifying for the playoffs but tied for position only shall not compete in a playoff set to determine position.  Rather, each team’s position shall be determined by the priority system described below.  However, no teams shall be eliminated from the playoffs based solely upon points or a point system, except for the gold/silver format tournaments.  If there are more teams tied for the playoffs than there are positions, the tied teams will compete in a minimum number of playoff sets so that no team will be eliminated from the playoff based on points.

B.   IF TWO TEAMS ARE TIED FOR TWO PLAYOFF POSITIONS for the tournament championship, or when re-seeding four team pools to play extra/cross pool matches to meet the SRVA requirement that each team play at least eight sets per tournament] [Example: two teams advance to the playoffs for a tournament championship and the top two teams in the pool are tied]

NO PLAYOFF SET IS NECESSARY. INSTEAD, determine the higher-seeded team by:

1. the result of the match between the two teams, first on sets won and lost.

2. If the two teams are still tied, use the point percentage process [see below] using the match between the two tied teams. The team with the highest point percentage has the highest finish in the pool.

3. If the two teams are still tied, the higher seed is determined by:

            [A] best set percentage record using total sets played, and if still tied

            [B] highest point percentage using total sets played.

4. If still tied, a coin toss will determine playoff positions.

5. IF THREE OR MORE TEAMS ARE TIED FOR THE SAME NUMBER OF PLAYOFF POSITIONS for the tournament championship, use steps 3 and 4 above.

            **The team with the highest point percentage has the highest finish in the pool, the team with the second highest point percentage is second in the pool, and so on. All teams proceed to the tournament championship based in their finish using steps 3 and 4 above.

Note: Point percentage is determined by dividing each team’s total points scored by the total points scored by all the team’s opponents in that pool using all sets played. The team with the highest point percentage has the next highest finish in the pool.

Set percentage is determined by dividing the sets won by each team by the sets lost by that same team using all sets played.
