    Default Naming teams from multiple clubs

    What are the conventions for identifying teams (fours) where the team is made up of players from multiple clubs in different parts of the world.

    I'm assuming this is less common in parts of the world where the sport is stronger (NZ, UK, AUS), but in Canada we often don't have the depth at individual clubs to put together strong fours teams. Our provincial championships (Ontario) allow open entries, and I'm involved with publishing results. The options I see are:
    1. Identify team by skip's club
    2. Identify team by majority of players' club of possible
    3. Identify teams by skip's name (this is familiar here because that's the standard in curling).
    4. Let the teams choose a name (I'd prefer this because it lets the teams be creative and could get some attention of they're clever)

    What are people doing elsewhere?

    Here in Scotland it is predominantly the club name that is referenced in team games as in county and national championships it is a club entry and all players will be members of that club.

    Skips names are used more in the Inter-County Hamilton Trophy type side matches where they come under a County banner.
    If you don't play it you won't get it.....

    In my county typically it goes by whoever enters the group into the competition.
    You can always out-bowl your bad luck in every game!
