How to fill out the box league sheet

A number of players have asked how to enter results into the box league sheet. Here is the correct way to enter the information.

Each player has their own row on the box league sheet. One column in the same box is also allocated to each player. The games each player wins in a match should be entered into their own row, in the square which intersects with the column of their opponent in that match.

Similarly, the games which the opponent won should be entered in the opponents row, against the column of the player entering the results. The scores for the first 2 sets should be entered in the top left and bottom left corners. If a third set is played, the score for that set should go in the bottom right corner (as the third set is a 10 point tie-break , this score will be a 1 or a 0). In the top right corner, W or L should be entered for win or loss.

So in the example below, player 1 plays player 3, and wins 6-3, 6-1. Player 1’s scores, 6 and 6, go into his row (highlighted in orange), where it crosses player 3’s column (purple). A letter W also goes in this square as this player won the match. Player 3’s scores, 3 and 1, go into his row (green), where it meets player 1’s column (blue). As this player lost, L is entered into this square.

Also shown in the above example, player 5 beat player 6 in 3 sets, 6-2, 2-6, 1-0. These are not highlighted, but the scores are entered in the same way as before, with the addition of the third set score.

Some players have been entering the scores of both players in the same square. This is not the correct way to do it, but if it is entered in this way don’t worry, we can work out what you mean. The figures in the section at the right of the sheet are for calculating the totals at the end of the round, and do not need to be filled in.
