COMPETITION FORMAT

  • Athletes must provide their own cues. Discs will be provided.
  • Doubles teams may be of same gender or 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, 2019.
  • Tournament format will be round robin, game and court times will be posted on site.
  • A coin toss will determine yellow/black. Yellow begins the game.
  • On bracket sheets, players and age divisions will be noted. If players are in the same age division they will be noted as medal games. All other games are out of age division and will not be medal games.
  • If a player is not at the court at posted time, a forfeit will be recorded. Unless commissioner is notified in advance.
  • 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 8 frames. The winner will be the player who scores the highest number of points after the 8 frames or whoever reaches 75 points after a complete frame.
  • 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 12 frames. Partners will play from opposite ends of the court. Each partner shall complete six frames, thus 12 total frames for the team. Players will not switch ends after any frame. The team or pair with the highest point score at the end of 12 total frames or the team who reaches 75 points after a completed frame will be the winner. Players may switch head to foot between games, but not during each game.
  • 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.
  • 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.
