3 Round-Robin Tournaments Every player/team plays every other player/team in their group or tournament.A fixture list in needed for the tournament to work.The table here is the current KS3 Astro25 and team A are the current leaders.The tournament can be represented visually as a league.
4 Ladder Tournaments Pyramid Tournament Players should be seeded.Participants move up if they win and down if they lose.Players may challenge any of the three opponents above.A deadline date/time should be set by which a winner is declared.This type of tournament is best suited for individual sports because participants are ranked by ability when the tournament is completed.Pyramid TournamentAn adaptation of the standard ladder tournament
5 Knockout TournamentsThe tournament starts with a ‘draw’ to see who plays who.Once defeated, the team/player is eliminated.Also called elimination tournaments.
6 Combination Tournaments This example shows a group stage (round-robin) followed by a knock-out.The group is used to ‘seed’ or ‘rank’ the four teams and there is an advantage to the team finishing 1st in the group as they play the 2nd placed team in the next phase of the tournament.In this example, and there are many more, each team plays three games before the possibility of elimination.
