    8. Players must be on an active (Summer Session) APA roster in any 8-Ball format.

    11. Matches are played according to an APA Ladies 8-Ball Championship Handicap Race Chart provided at the Event.
    12. Each team is limited to one coaching time-out per game. 
    13. 3-Point Scoring System
      1. Player A wins with a shutout; they win 3-0.
      2. If Player A wins, but Player B wins a game, Player A gets 2-0.
      3. If Player A wins, but Player B makes it to the hill, the split is 2-1.
    14. Sudden Death is implemented 2 hours and 30 minutes into a Ladies match. The rack must be struck in the third individual match by the 2-hours-and-30-minutes mark, or all subsequent individual matches will begin with a rack worth two team points.  If that two-point rack mathematically wins the team match, the team match will be over; if it does not win the team match, a second rack worth one team point will conclude that individual match.  This procedure will continue in each subsequent individual match until a team mathematically wins or the overall match finishes in a tie: one two-point rack, followed by a one-point rack if necessary.  Tie breakers will be decided by the team that won the most individual matches.   NOTE:  During Ladies Sudden Death, the individual match winner will be the player who wins the two-point rack.
