Many petanque competitions are still very poorly organized currently. We must admit that a draw done by hand can be long and tedious, especially when there are more than 50 teams. It is also worst when you have to organize a competition "winner against winner".
With friends, with partner clubs, internally or for a competition open to all, let's see how to simply and quickly organize a tournament in 3 or 4 matches.
To organize a petanque competition, you need to attract some players and you need also to promote this event. First, read this tutorial below :Publish and promote a petanque event
The competition starts in 3 days and many players are expected because you promoted very well the event ! It is a success and you are now busy with the organization. Do not panic, we have a document for you to list all the teams and to record the results of the matches. Choose below the PDF document corresponding to your competition. Choose the number of matches (3 or 4 matches) and the PDF format. It will automatically generate a PDF document that you could print (click on the image with the arrow to generate the pdf file).
Good to know : for a competition in 3 matches, 9 teams minimum are expected and for a competition in 4 matches, 15 teams minimum are expected.
Let's take an example with 4 teams and 4 matches in total : (Click on image to enlarge)
Yes we also thought about badges . A badge is like a label with the team number. Just select the number of teams in the competition then click on "Generate badges" (max 256 teams). It will automatically generate a pdf file with all the badges. Print it and cut badges !
It is now time to run a random draw for every match of the competition ! Just enter the number of teams and matches of the competition, then click on "Generate matches". It will automatically generate a pdf file with a random draw for every match ! Thanks petanque world
If there is a team which is called "blanc", it is because the number of teams is odd, so for every match, one team will play against nobody. When a team plays against "blanc", it wins automatically, just put the score 13-7, that is usually the best practice.
