Each week a new tournament starts on Monday and runs all week long until Sunday night at midnight.
Sunday night at midnight the tournament closes and the tournaments are calculated, the results are posted on the website and the player’s get paid every Monday.
The games are typically scored 1 point per ball legally pocketed according the game rules (some games and points differ). For most games, players will play 11 games for a match with the exception of 110 (14.1) which will be 11 games or 110 points whichever comes first.
The four divisions of each game that are handicapped: Intermediate, Open, Advanced and semi-pro. We also have a pro division that plays scratch with no handicap. When a new player starts they will participate in the scratch division for 6 matches to establish an average against other players (for prize money) that are also trying to establish their averages. Once a player has 6 matches they will get a handicap that goes out to one one/hundredth of a point. The handicap levels the playing field and so it may not be best player that wins an event, or it might be, but the player that brings their “A” game for their skill level for that event. If you don’t want to play handicapped then you can jump in and play in the Professional division which will be scratch with equipment criteria.
Players pay an annual membership dues of $35/year depending on their division. Membership dues and entry fees vary by division, by event and are paid by debit or credit card through the website using their cell phone, tablet, ipad, Kiosk station or the device of your choosing. Regular Weekly Entry Fees for most events are: $10 for Intermediate, Open and Advanced. $20 Semi-pro. $50 Professional.
Each country will have their own Team Captains. Each team will have their own Team webpage that only their team has access to. The Captain of each team will mentor the players on their team with the chat room, drills or whatever tools they choose. The Team Captains are there for their team to mentor their players for success. Throughout the year we will have Pro-Am events where there will be no divisions, but handicaps will be used. These events will be exciting with larger purses for all. There will be a minimum matches that the player will have to have played to participate. We will have other surprise events with the Pros as well.
