Double elimination tournament
Main rule is Sumo has to be <10cm by 10cm and <500g
The ring we will use is made of MDF painted FLAT BLACK with a GLOSS WHITE border ring. The rubber surface of the last ring was just to hard to source, build, maintain and paint. It is at LVL1 so you can test your bot anytime.
