Northern Aces rotator tournament is an American-style handicapped doubles tournament. All players are split into two groups based on their ability, and compete for points as individuals on the doubles court. Each round players will play with and against different players (except in unusual circumstances), and the game starting scores change depending on which pair are ahead.
It sounds complex, but once you've played a round it soon becomes second nature. Northern Aces has 4 Rotator Tournaments a year, and the finalists from each Tournament are then invited to play for the Rotator Cup, an actual cup you can win!
