LOOPS organisers were encouraged by the system and the rewards brought to the club in terms of competitiveness.
“We will tweak the format a little for next week, for example if we have a 6 player division, we’ll have two separate groups of three players playing each other and a cross over for positions, we are also looking forward to seeing re-entry from the players that will be promoted up a division”
The likes of Don Luu, Ziggy Saable, Aiden Tang and Stephen Liu will be provided higher level divisional matches next week.
