I am looking into setting up a rated adult singles league for typical club (as opposed to performance) players in my town as no such thing exists here and would appreciate any tips or advice from others who have experience of such things. A few points I have on my list already: 1. I will be running the league alone as a volunteer so I need to minimise the amount of time and cost involved. I cannot get involved in chasing players to play or log results or arbitrating disputes over non-pplayed matches. 2. Structure is likely to be leagues of 4 or 5 players at each rating level with promotion and relegation after each run. 3. Players will come from a number of clubs in the town which are all fairly close to each other. Bearing in mind (1) above I think the best format would be one where players have to organise thier own matches within prescribed timescales (I think you call that Flex league in the US). Not sure how long to give them though or how many runs per year is realistic. 4. I think I will need very firm rules on getting matches played. For example, the result of any matches not played by each deadline will be automatically be decided by the toss on a coin. And there will be an automatic 2 strikes and you are out (of the league for good) rule for players who do not play matches. 5. Online management of leagues and results would be great. Any advice on free / cheap online resources for this? Thanks in advance for any advice.
