Conduct and Rules
NO SANDBAGGING!!

NO SANDBAGGING!!

Sandbagging is defined as a player who enters into a division below his or her ability or “a person who would beat up their little sister and brag to friends about it.” The player with the highest skill level determines a team´s level of play. Pool Monitors will not consider excuses like, “We have never played together before” or “I recently had surgery or injury” valid for playing in lower divisions, if it doesn´t actually diminish your ability to play your legitimate division. If you are found to be guilty of “sandbagging” by your pool monitor after start of games, you can continue on in pool play but you MUST forfeit playoffs. Complaints regarding sandbaggers should be reported to your division Pool Monitor.

If you are not sure which division your team is best suited, or ask your pool monitor prior to start of games.

Sandbaggers go against the principles of CVC.

**Please be advised**
CVC will now be enforcing our NO SANDBAGGING policy.

One of the most commons complaints we get from our participants is the fact that sandbagging is becoming more blatantly obvious at our tournaments. Teams are now using the excuse that they're “only playing down because everyone else is.” this is not a legitimate excuse!

If the CVC pool monitor for you division determines your team is obviously sandbagging, your team can only continue in pool play, but you MUST forfeit the playoffs- nonrefundable.

These guidelines below are what we will be using to help us make this determination for each team:
Women´s & Men´s Triples (Saturday)

  • Team Consists of 2AA + 1A players should play AA.
  • Team Consists of 1AA + 2A players should play A.

  • Team Consists of B Male + B Female should play B.
  • Team Consists of B Male + BB Female should play B.
  • Team Consists of B Male + A Female should play B.

Nothing is set in stone. Our Pool Monitors will do their best to be as fair as possible to that DIVISION as a whole. If you're not sure if you or another team is playing in the correct division, ask BEFORE pool play starts. Once pool play starts, it is too late to change divisions.
