COMPETITION FORMAT

  • Athletes must provide their own cues. Discs will be provided.
  • Doubles teams may be of mixed gender. Partners must each designate the other on their entry form. No partners will be assigned and no partner changes may be made after the entry deadline. Athletes may compete with only one partner per event.
  • The age division of competition for doubles will be determined by the younger age of the two partners as of December 31, 2017.
  • Tournament format will be round robin, with as many players as possible advancing to a single elimination championship bracket. Quarterfinal round losers will compete for 5th through 8th places.
  • Any game missed/forfeited during bracket play will be considered a loss.
  • KSG reserves the right to change the tournament format for any age division based on entry numbers, space restrictions, or other circumstances.
  • Singles matches will consist of 12 frames in the preliminary rounds and 16 frames in the championship rounds. The winner will be the player who scores the highest number of points after the specified number of frames.
  • Two matches will be played on one court at the same time. Opposing players will play from the same end of the court. Players will not change ends after any frame.
  • Doubles matches will consist of 16 frames. Partners will play from opposite ends of the court. Each partner shall complete eight frames, thus 16 total games for the team. Players will not switch ends after any frame. The team or pair with the highest point score at the end of 16 total frames will be the winner. Players may switch head to foot between games, but not during each game.
  • Players advancing into the seeded round (top 8 players in each age bracket) from the pools is determined by the number of games a play won and loss.
  • In the event of a tie, the players will participate in a playoff. The number of frames in a play-off will be determined by the Sport Commissioner and based on how many players are participating in that age bracket.
  • Once in the seeded round, your seeding will be determined by number of points scored during the previous games in the tournament. In case of a tie, the number of average points per game (ppg) of the tied teams will determine seeding. The team with the highest ppg average will receive the higher seed.
  • The cue shall not have an overall length of more than 6 feet, 3 inches. No metal part of the cue shall touch the playing surface.
  • All shuffleboard matches will be conducted in accordance with National shuffleboard Association rules, except as modified herein. Please visit www.national-shuffleboard-association.us/ for a copy of these rules.
