About qualifying

Competition starts at 12:00 (doors open 10:30).

Max Matchplay qualifying — each player playing 24 head to head games (this may be less, if we have last minute cancellations). We have 12 games at home, but not all will be in play at once, so you will have some time to relax between games. Matchplay will aim for everyone to play a different person each game, but you may have some duplicate players.

About the finals

After qualifying (and the now traditional ‘raffle’!), there will be a finals for the top 8 players.

Each round will be 3 games played in groups of 4. The top two players of each seed will pick games 1 and 2 at the start of each round, and the final game will be chosen randomly. Players can only choose each game once.

The scoring will be 7-5-3-1 for each group, with the top 2 players of each group going through to the next round.

The final will then be four players in a 3 game final, scored as 7-5-3-1. Games 1 and 2 will be chosen randomly, and game 3 will be Flash Gordon.

If the top 8 includes more than 8 players, a tie break game will be played on a randomly allocated machine. Players will be eliminated until only the required amount qualify for the finals.
