Teams may choose any 3 of the 5 members to participate in each match.
The total skill level of the 3 players cannot exceed 15.
A player's highest skill level between formats (8-Ball & 9-Ball) must be used towards the 15-Rule with the exception that 9-Ball skill level 8/9's will count as a 7 in this tournament.
Players may only participate on ONE team.
One time out per player, per game will be allowed.
Alternate between 8-Ball and 9-Ball racks, starting with 8-Ball.
Only one player of skill level 6 or higher, sometimes referred to as a senior skill level player, may play in any given match.
Team Captains flip a coin to decide who must declare their three players for the match. Winner of the flip has the choice of declaring first or having the opposing Team Captain choose first. The Captains will list their players in ascending order (lowest to highest). That list determines the player rotation, and is locked for the match. Once both teams in a match have declared their players, the players cannot be changed unless the 15-Rule is in jeopardy.
Order of play will be lowest skill level to highest.
Players lag to see who wins first break.
Once the first two players have completed their rack of 8-Ball, the second two players in the rotation will play a rack of 9-Ball. Upon that rack’s completion, the next two players in the rotation will play a rack of 8-Ball. Once set, the player rotation continues until a team reaches the required points necessary to win the match.
Each individual rack is worth one team point.
