The playoff format will be as follows:
3 teams are assigned each court and will play each other twice. This is similar to the schedule of games played during the regular season. Games are to 21 with a cap of 23.
The winner of each court will advance to the playoff finals. The winning team is determined by the Win-Loss record with the following tiebreakers ( in order):
Head-to-Head +/- between tied teams for the night
+/- for all the games played that night
Finishing standing in the regular season
The playoff finals will be held between the winners of each court. The playoff winner will be determined as the best 2 of 3 game. The first two games are played to 21 with no cap. The final game, if needed, is played to 15 with no cap.
Because of the number of games which need to be accommodated and the limited time available please note the following:
Games will start (i.e. the whistle for the first serve) at 7:15PM. Teams unable to field a legal team at that time will default their game.
During game play teams are allowed 2 timeouts with a max duration of 2 minutes each.
Note that using substitute players from the sideline teams is not allowed during the playoffs.
The 2019 AGM was held on April 25th, 2019 at The Erin Mills Pump and Patio. The content presented at the meeting is posted here. The following is a summary of the proceedings of the AGM:
All of the positions up for election were filled by acclamation. The position of Membership Secretary was vacated by the current Membership Secretary being nominated for the position of President. The position of Membership Secretary was filled by nomination. PCVC welcomes the following individuals to the incoming exec for 2019-2020.
President – Matt Hartwell
Tournament Director – Meaghan Hartwell
League Convener – Brent Cossitt
Secretary – Christina Chan
Membership Secretary – Alyson Cross
Proposal – Updated role of Secretary. This proposal updated the role of Secretary to include the responsibility for organizing social events. To pass this proposal required two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the Members present. This motion was PASSED.
Proposal – Advance Membership Renewal deadline to June 15th. This proposal eliminated the two-tier pricing (ie Earlybird/Regular) pricing for Membership Renewal. There would be a single price for renewal and the date for renewal would be advanced from August 15th to June 15th. Any new memberships or membership payments after that date would be at a higher rate than for Membership renewals. To pass this proposal required two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the Members present. This motion was PASSED.
Proposal – Flexibility to reduce the size per team to 7 members. This proposal gives the PCVC executive the ability to reduce the number of members on a team from the current 8 per team to 7 per team due to attrition from the league or other reasons such as not finding enough qualified players. If reduced to 7, there would be a 4:3 ratio of men:women on a team. A large majority of those present expressed their preference to reduce the team size to 7. A reduction of team size also impacts the number of overall members in the league and the amount of Membership revenue collected by PCVC. A large majority also expressed their willingness to accept an increase in the cost of membership fees (approximately 15%) in order to reduce the team size to 7. To pass this proposal required two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the Members present. This motion was PASSED.
Proposal – Guarantee 10 regular season league nights per season. This proposal directs the PCVC executive to secure alternate venues or extend the season as needed in order to have a minimum regular season length of 10 weeks of play. To pass this proposal required a simple majority vote of the Members present. This motion was PASSED.
Proposal – Set aside a “League Grant”. This proposal is to have funding of 10% over the bank balance of $15000 to be allocated for the running of ad hoc events by members or non-members. To pass this proposal required a simple majority vote of the Members present. This motion was REJECTED.
Proposal – Allow Members/Non-members to run ad hoc events. The proposal to set aside the “League Grant” was amended as follows:
“If a member or non-member wants to run an incremental tournament or a pick-up night or other ad hoc event, they can apply to the PCVC Exec for approval, and if granted can run the proposed event.“
To pass this proposal required a simple majority vote of the Members present. This motion was PASSED.
Proposal – Draft System for Team-Making. The proposal is to replace the system of the PCVC Executive forming teams, and instead implement a draft system where 12 league members are nominated/volunteer to architect their own team. To pass this proposal required a simple majority vote of the Members present. This motion was REJECTED.
Due to the unavailability of the Iona gym on April 18th, all games regularly scheduled for April 18th will be moved to April 25th.
Playoffs will be held in a single week on May 2nd.
The AGM is rescheduled until the evening of April 25th.
