Event 6 - Points will be allocated as stated in the City of Bath PC competition schedule
Event 7 - Points will be awarded as follows – 10 points per win in the Championship and 5 points per win in the Challenge. If the City of Bath Petanque Club has a team member who is a Squad manager at the event then that person will gain an average score taken from all the points gained from City of Bath Members participating in the championships.
The rankings will be updated on the first day of each month and only comes into effect from that day.
For all the above events, with the exception of any event which is part of the EPA ranking system If a team comprises of players who are not City of Bath PC EPA members then the COB players involved will get the percentage of points depending on the number of COB members within the team. For example, in a doubles event if there are two COB players then both players will gain 100% of the points earned. If there is only one COB player then that player will gain 50% of the points earned for that team. In the triples the same rule will apply meaning if only one COB player then they will get 33% (rounded down), two players will get 66% (rounded down) each and if all three are COB members then they will all gain 100% of the points earned each. If there are more players in the teams stated above then the same percentage rule will apply.
The rankings system along with the COB Squad positions will be used as a guide to pick the teams who represent the City of Bath Petanque Club in the EPA Eurocup event, the Brunel League, the friendship games and all other EPA City of Bath representative matches. The order in which the teams will be selected will firstly be from the availability of the Premier Squad Members, then from the players availability in highest order first from your current EPA ranking and then the COB ranking list. During the year the club will organise representative matches for all three levels of players against other clubs or associations this will mean that every squad player will get the chance to represent the club.
