Tournament-Information

Format

  • All matches are single, 16-frame games.
  • Teams change color after eight (8) frames.
  • Shooting order is Y-B-B-Y. Starting color is determined by Tournament Draw.
  • Each player is allowed eight (8) warm-up discs before frames one (1) and nine (9).
  • In the event of a tie, players switch to the original colors (no practice shots) and play two (2) additional frames. If still tied after two (2) frames, players switch colors again and play another two (2) additional frames, continuing to switch colors and repeat two (2) frames at a time (to ensure each opponent receives a hammer) until the tie is broken. In this tiebreaker format, color order will be Yellow then Black every two (2) frames.
  • Each Team is guaranteed at least two (2) matches:
    • Teams who win their first match advance to the Main Bracket.
    • Teams who lose their first match advance to the Consolation Bracket.
    • Any loss thereafter results in elimination.
  • Tournament will follow NYSA’s Rules of Play which can be found at [link]

Etiquette

  • No coaching, pointing, gesturing, NADA!
  • Try to clear with reasonable power. If you/your partner finds the need to blast a biscuit:
    • Announce your intent before proceeding.
    • Give others time to get out of the way, if needed.
    • Be prepared to stop any disc from ricocheting back onto the court.
  • You are not required to be seated during your off-frame but please do not be distracted or a distraction to others.
  • You are allowed to walk to the other side of the court to inspect a shot. Your teammate should remain seated and silent at this time.
  • Be sure to act in accordance with NYSA’s Rules of Play and Code of Conduct listed therein. Any violation will be penalized as outlined therein.
