Brighton polo are organising our first ever tournament on the 7th May.

The event will be part of the UK National series and will be running Swiss rounds with each team playing 4 games minimum.

Bed space is limited and priority will be given to teams outside of London.

We're putting an emphasis on non-london polo so whilst everyone is welcome, we want to aim towards having 50% of teams from the rest of the country and there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes non-london teams.

Registration and info here http://www.lfgss.com/thread61362.html

We're new to this so any support is greatly appreciated and we're really looking forward to it.

What's up with these results? http://hardcourtpodium.com/follow/brighton

Did those teams play extra games or something?

Yep, once you were guaranteed to qualify through to the double elimination stage, or had no possible path through, you were cut from the competing teams list (manually).

This meant there was more time for extra games to sort out the mid-table really accurately. What you're seeing there is the result of the mid-table additional matches.

A UK National Series organiser might chime in and explain it further, but that's what I understood of the process.
