This is an elimination bracket creator that you can use to manage your tournament that implement a single or double elimination system. Usually, they are racquet sports, like tennis, badminton, table tennis which involve only two or four people but there are some non racquet sports that implement this scoring rules, for example volley ball. Besides ball sports, there are plenty of sport and non-sport tournament are implementing these elimination systems, because of its easiness, like card games, boxing, wrestling, computer game competition, etc. I have ever made a static single elimination bracket 6 years ago which can be used for any kind of head-to-head sports that require a number of winning sets to decide the winners. But, this new elimination bracket will help you reduce most of your time on making manual adjustment with those old brackets.

Single elimination bracket is the most simple system if you have a limited day and time to organize the tournament. It is easy to arrange the matches, either using a random or seeded drawing. The drawback is, maximum half of participants will be headed home after the first matches. Perhaps some of them won’t be satisfied, but it is common. To compensate this issue, there are another system that could be implemented, which is called double elimination which require participants to lose twice to be eliminated in the tournament. This system is a little bit complex, because you have to design the same pairing matches, that lose in different beginning rounds are not met again until final, or at least semifinals. It is easy to arrange for small number of participants, but it is a little bit complex for large number of participants and it requires more precise bracketing algorithm to avoid those early meeting possibilities. Fortunately, there are many static bracket already typed with pairing matches rule you can find and use in internet for free to help you managing your tournament, one of them is my old single elimination bracket.

Formula 1 race for 2015 season will start in 15th March 2015 in Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia. Races will be held in 20 circuits andĀ  there will be no double point awarded in the last race. Compare with last year participants, there are only 10 constructors and 20 drivers that will participate in this season. Fernando Alonso will skip the first race because of health concern. And After seeing the result of pre-season test, I think Mercedes won’t dominate this year’s races. For the past 5 years, constructor who won Australian race will be crowned as constructor champion, except in 2013 where Lotus became a race winner.

Formula 1 2015 Race Schedule and ScoresheetThis spreadsheet is the same with last year spreadsheet. There is no modification being made except circuit, constructor and driver names. I planned to add more features, but I’ve never had a chance to do it. So, you still can follow the same instruction to use it. If you are new to this spreadsheet, you can read short instruction inside this spreadsheet. It is very easy, just move between circuit race by selecting circuit name at the left side of the worksheet and type race winner from 1 to 10. You will see dashboard graph and standing table adjusted accordingly. If drivers are awarded penalty or point reduction in one race, or if there is a race where the point is cut into half, you can change it easily in race worksheet by replacing the point number at the right side of winner table.
