Open Division 3 News:
For 2017, Division 3 will normally be limited to 30 teams per event. Depending on daylight hours and demand, for some events we may look to increase this number and once full, will operate a waiting list. Order of registration/payment will decide which teams may enter the tournament. We aim for up to 5 games in prelims for Division 3 teams, playing a Timed Race format.
Division 3 will play Saturday and Sunday only.
Teams who wish to play Division 3 do not have to commit to the season and can play as many or as few events as they wish. However, based on points received during the season teams will be ranked & a Champion crowned at the season end.
Division 3 plays in a Timed Race Format Format & the WPBO 500 limited ball format.
Division 3 Specifics:
** Timed Race Format
→ One Period of 8 Minutes
→ Mercy Limit: 2 point lead
2017 Division 3 Entry Fees: €800 per event/€960 inc VAT
