When it ends all square...

What is a Golden Set?

With the majority of our European Cup matches played using the "Home & Away" format, it is inevitable that sometimes it ends with both sides winning one match each.  So how is it decided which team progresses?  

Well, the winner is the team with the most allocated point using the below system:
- 3 points for the winner 3:0 or 3:1 of a match,
- 2 points for the winner 3:2 of a match,
- 1 point for the loser 2:3 of a match,
- 0 points for the loser 0:3 or 1:3 of a match.

If it is a tie in the number of points then a Golden Set is required to split the teams.  This is played straight after the conclusion of the second match as a 1 tie break set of 15 points, with a minimum 2 points lead achieved like in all other sets.  

Truly one of the most intense and exciting things to witness, every time it happens.
