Game – This is the type of competition that two opponents engage in to determine the winner. Common “games” include 501 SIDO, Cricket and 301 DIDO.
Leg – A leg consists of one game (see prior), with two opponents.
Set – A set consists of one or more legs (see above). Most leagues limit sets to one type of game, but some designate a different game for each leg, or allow the players to select the preferred game based on play order or the winner of the cork.
Segment – This is an organizational structure that may dictate a number of sets (see prior) determined by the type of game, player lineup format (singles, doubles, etc.) or other method of structuring competition for the evening.
Match – This is the over arching entity that contains all of the sets and legs required to complete the weekly league event.
League Points – These are the points a team/player accumulates throughout the season. Often defined as “Match Score”, we use the term “League Points” to differentiate from the win/loss record of match, to accommodate situations where the available points cannot be readily defined, such as 1 point per leg or set win.
