Bowling Reverse Brackets Management

Reverse Brackets In Tournament Planet

So you want to switch things up with your bracket play – Reverse brackets are a simple way to do that! And Tournament Planet Bowling Reverse Brackets Management makes it easy create and manage them. What is a reverse bracket? Put simply, a reverse bracket is where the scores from the third game are used for the first round of the bracket. As a result, the scores from the first game are used for the third round. This is exciting because it switches things up and you won’t know how you did until all games are finished.

This is nice for players because if you have a bad game 1 score it could throw off your mojo for later games if you’ve already been eliminated from all your brackets. Not with reverse brackets though. Better yet, is that all of the scores update immediately for players to see. That means you get all of the normal benefits of running your bracket through Tournament Planet.

If you want to use standard brackets our documentation for that can be found at Bowling Brackets Management. Full app documentation is found on our support page.
