I’m beginning work on plans for a split flipper tournament in 2018. I’ve only played in one and had a great time but wanted to get some feedback from others who have played or hosted this format on what you like best to help my planning.
The one I played in was a 3-strikes knockout and machines were 3 or 5 balls and required players switch sides each new ball. What other details are good to plan for in a split flipper tournament? If you’ve run one, did you require co-ed teams, or have a minimum combined WPPR rating to try to even out the groups? Do you require people register as a team or match people up if they show up solo?
I’ll probably want to run a set number of rounds of match play for this event rather than a knockout but I want to make sure I take advantage of any innovations people have implemented out there when running split flipper events. I know this won’t be for WPPRs so I want to maximize the fun! Thank you for the help!
