This year during the summer the NDBSA is continuing its tradition of trying something a little different.
2018-19 Two-Up Competition
– Players are ranked according to their handicap and their opponents are chosen from the opposing team by their corresponding rank (5 man teams)
- Each game consists of two continuous frames (15 red) with the first frame played until completion (the final black is potted or a foul is committed on the final black)
Points accumulated in the first frame remain on the scoreboard and the second frame points are added to these scores.
Tony Tamplin Shield handicaps are to be used and doubled at the start of the game. Example: John Smith is a -12 handicap and he is playing Wayne Brown a +4 handicap. With handicaps doubled John is -24 and Wayne is +8. Wayne will get 32 start for the 2 continuous frames. Please note max handicap difference for game is 80pts (40pts per frame)
The Mercy rule applies in the last frame
– Each game is a continuous 2 frames and one point is awarded to the winner

The Kahibah Sports Cannons Minor Premiers have added the Major Premiership to their dominating season in the Tony Tamplin Shield. Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 battled well to reach the Grand Final after just scraping in to 8th spot in the finals but Kahibah stopped their impressive run. On the night Kahibah flew out of the blocks with a couple of quick wins before the Belmont attempted to fight their way back into the match. However, Kahibah’s momentum was too great and they ended up winning the night in a comprehensive fashion. A big thank you to Wangi Workers Club for hosting the Grand Final, Ian Callaghan and Grant Schubert for refereeing on the night and Chris Mungoven and Annette Clifford for excellent running the 2018 Tony Tamplin Shield and also ensuring the Grand Final ran extremely smoothly. Rob Elsley took out the season high break with a 61. Anyone who wants to watch table 2 of the Grand Final can watch here.
