  1. Tournament is a large contest of many rounds among various teams. It is a competition held among various teams in a particular activity according to a fixed schedule where a winner is decided.

    Number of teams participating are 27.

    Number of matches : n – 1 = 27 – 1 = 26 matches

    Teams in upper half = n +1/2 = 27 + 1/2 = 28/2 = 14 teams

    Teams in lower half = n – 1/2 = 27 – 1/2 = 26/2 = 13 teams

    Number of teams participating are odd so number of byes will be = 32 – 27 = 5 byes.

    In Knockout system the team which loses the match is eliminated and the winners continue to play. When we have less time usually we conduct single elimination tournament.

    Date/time and court number, is specified for each match so that teams/players report for their matches well in advance.
