Rules

  • The Singles Cup is a straight knock-out competition.
  • The draw for each round will be unseeded.
  • All matches are to be played at the venue chosen by first player drawn, other player to break first. Semi-finals and final to be played on neutral venue.
  • Matches in the early rounds are played as best of three (first to 2). Quarter-finals will be best of 5 (first to 3 frames), semi-finals and final will be best of 7 (first to 4 frames).
  • If a Singles Cup match ends in a tie, then further frames are played until the tie is broken.

Playing of matches

  • Matches must be played by the date specified on the draw sheet. The players involved can mutually agree on a date and time.
  • For the semi-final, players are encouraged to notify the league organiser/their team captain/league Facebook page etc of the place, date and time of the fixture.
  • The singles league is open to players not in a team that season.
  • If one player has attempted to arrange a match in advance of the last day deadline (via phone number provided on singles league entry) and has not received a response from their opponent then they will automatically win that round.
  • If both players are not able to play their match by the deadline they must notify the league organiser in advance of the deadline with a date set for their match within one week past the deadline, else a winner may be declared randomly if both players fail to attempt to arrange a match. If a match cannot be scheduled until more than one week after the deadline, a random winner may be decided to avoid subsequent rounds running out of time, to be decided at league organisers discretion.

Neutral scorer

  • Before the quarter-finals, participants may request a neutral scorer for their match if one is available. From the quarter-finals onwards, a neutral scorer will be present at every match.

Hospitality

  • The winning player in each match will buy the losing player a drink as a ‘thank you’ for the match, unless otherwise agreed.
