6-Red Competition Format

Format
Players are ranked according to their handicap and their opponents are chosen from the opposing team by their corresponding rank.The Official Rules are strictly adhered to though there is the added local ‘mercy rule’ which means a frame is lost if a player requires more than three snookers plus a point after the last red is sunk. The ‘mercy rule’ doesn’t apply to the deciding frame and only to the first frame in semi-finals onward. The foul and miss rule apples to all matches throughout the season. 

Scoring

  • Each game is the best of three frames (third frame not required if a player wins 2-0)

–  One point awarded per frame won

–  Two bonus points for team that wins on the night (maximum 12 points can be won on any night)

  • Winner on the night is determined by game wins not frame points ( eg: Team A wins the first three games 2-1. Team A is on 6 points Team B is on 3 points. Team B wins the last two games 2-0 which makes the frame score Team A 6 points Team B 7 points. Team A has won the night three games to two and gets the two bonus points. Final score Team A 8 points Team B 7 points.

 

Bye

  • Zero points for the BYE

The order of play for the finals will be draw out of the hat and each match goes on as soon as any table becomes available just as in the group stages. As always home teams get the right to choose which tables the first 2 home side players play on. Home teams mark matches except when it’s a 3 table venue and in that instance the away player/s not playing should assist with marking.
