The process of creating and managing a Matchplay Event works like this:

  • Create a traditional Archers Diary Event to run the Qualifying Rounds
    This event must be electronically scored as it is a standard Archers Diary event. 
           Electronic scoring is required for rest of this process to work

    Note: It is recommended that a separate flight be created for each Matchplay grouping for individuals
    Refer: Qualifying Rounds

  • Create a Matchplay Event
    This is the parent to which all brackets are attached
    Refer: Matchplay Events

  • Create the individual Brackets
    Each category or grouping of archers will have a separate Bracket
    Examples:
    • Male Compound
    • Open Female Recurve
    • Mixed Barebow
    • Teams - Mixed Compound
    • Teams - Male Compound+Recurve

Refer: Brackets


  • For each Individuals Bracket, link the Bracket to the Ranking round(s)
    This is used to automatically import and rank the archers
    Refer: Individual Event

  • For each Teams Bracket, Create the Teams and link the Individuals to the Team
    This is used to automatically import the total of the scores from the individuals, which in turn is used to rank the teams
    Refer: Team Event

  • When a Bracket is Generated, the scores are imported, individuals/teams are ranked and the matchplay tables generated.
    Refer: Matchplay Table

  • As each pairing is scored, the winner is advanced to the next round
    In the case where a non-elimination event is created, the loser of the match is also moved to the next matchplay pairing.

  • Once all of the results have been entered, the system displays the final placings.
