Singles Doubles & 3 Man Team Competitions 2014

This year, the KDPL Singles and Doubles Knockout competitions will be played on Saturday 22/02/2014. We will be splitting the competitions between 2 venues, so those who have entered both competitions should check the draw to find out when and where you will be playing.

The venue for the singles competition is the Albion, and the doubles competition is the Ivy Leaf.

Start times for the first matches (those who have been highlighted) will be 11am, and players should register before playing from 10.30am at the Albion. If you are in both competitions, please attend the Albion first.

Those who are required to be at a certain location for the preliminary round have been marked on the draw sheet.

There is a £1 per player entry fee for the singles competition, and £2 per two person team entry fee for the doubles competition. This should be paid when you arrive at the venue, and before playing your first match.

All matches are best of 3 frames to the final.

You can find the full singles draw here and the full doubles draw here, and we will make every effort to update this as the event goes on and the results come in from both venues.

The Rules:
It is expected that players will always play the game in the true spirit and in a sporting manner. The floor referee will take whatever action is necessary to ensure that the spirit and rules of the game are observed.

A player is expected to self referee with honesty & play a shot within sixty seconds. The floor referee will start timing where persistent slow play is observed. If a player breaches the "Spirit of the Game" to such an extent, the floor referee may award frame (or match) to the opponent. This includes abusive or threatening behaviour to any competitor or committee member. Any final decision will be taken by the qualified referee at the event.

Information to be disclosed/not disclosed by a referee:-
A player is responsible for knowing the rules of the game. It is not the referee's duty to explain or quote the rules to a player.

A referee, if asked by a player, may divulge certain information pertaining to the frame in question under the guidelines of the 'Past Present and Future Rule'. A referee may divulge information relating to any past event or present situation in the frame. For example:-
  • "Who's turn is it?" - Present
  • "Was that a foul?" - Past
  • "Which colour am I on?" - Present
However, "If I play this shot will it be a foul?" is a question regarding the future, and the referee should advise the player that the referee cannot answer this type of question.
