Most teams have played 8 games, but some have already played 9. It was therefore decided to resume competition at the same time as the 10th day of the championship.
Matches that are not scheduled in this calendar should therefore be played before March 26, 2022. For the vast majority of teams, this is a single match; for 9 teams it is 2 and for 2 teams 3 matches. If each team had played the same number of games, central planning would be obvious. This is not the case, so we assume that the planning of these catch-up matches is best done by the captains themselves; after all, there are too many factors to consider. For these catch-up matches, 4 reserve weeks have been included in the schedule.
We understand that it will not be easy for the captains to organize everything, but we are counting on the flexibility and sportsmanship of all the participants, so that the championship can end as normally as possible.
If a team fails to play a match, we will need to assign a forfeit score for that match. The forfeit score will not be the usual 12-0. The team that can play will initially receive 12, but this score will be adjusted if the average of the games played is higher than 12 (normal rule). The forfeiting team obtains as forfeit score the average of its matches played with a maximum of 8.
To be clear: the rules that were communicated in an email of January 4 are no longer valid.
We hope for your understanding and wish you a pleasant end of the competition.
