The detailed match schedule will be announced shortly, with play to start at 10am each day. Once again it will be a round-robin format, with all matches best-of-three frames. The top two in each group will qualify for the final winners’ group, to be played on March 21, when the champion will be crowned.
WST intend to have at least two reserve players on site who will replace any players who withdraw for any reason. The selection of the reserve players will be based on their performance in Phase One, using the following criteria:
1) Most points won in the group stage
2) Most frames won in the group stage
3) Highest break in the group stages
Replacements who make it into the event will be eligible for prize money and ranking points.
