Division names


The new naming conventions will be broken into Open, A, B, and C Divisions for the men and women draws. Each Division will contain a number of brackets based upon the number of players in a division.

Men

  • Open Division – Open Bracket
  • A Division – A1, A2, A3 Brackets
  • B Division – B1, B2, B3, Brackets
  • C Division – C1, C2, C3 Brackets


Women

  • Open Division– Open Bracket
  • A Division – A1, A2 Brackets
  • B Division – B1, B2 Brackets
  • C Division - C Bracket


To categorize teams for Open, A, or B team titles, you would take the AVERAGE of the players’ seeds. For the 2017 men’s draw, to find the three Divisions you would divide the total number of entrants by 3, e.g. 162 entrants / 3 = 54.

  • Open Division up to 54
  • A Division 55 – 108
  • B Division 109 - 162


To qualify for a team title, a school would still need to have a minimum of three players in a gender. Points would be calculated exactly how they were in 2017. The schools would have been divided as follows in the Men’s 2017 tournament using this method.
