First, some terminology...
Team - contains 1 or more Lines
Lines - contains 3 or 5 pairs
Pair - two players
Dual - competition between two clubs
Flight - competition between pairs
The tournaments will either be lines of 3 pairs or 5 pairs, most are lines of 3. For tournaments with lines of 3, we will take 2 lines and 1 or 2 alternate pairs. For tournaments with lines of 5, we will take one line and one alternate pair.
For duals, each club will play the other clubs pairs. Pair 1 will play pair 1, pair 2 will play pair 2, and so on. For lines of three, the winning club will need to win two out of the three flights. For lines of five, the winning club will need to win three out of the five flights. Alternate flights are non-scoring.
