Updated after British Open

 

Friday Warm-up, 2018

 

There is a Warm-up on the Friday evening: £5 Registration, £10 entry (100% return). At the UK Finals in November the Top 16 players (members only) in the listing will playoff for prize money of £340 on the Friday evening. If any of the qualifying players don't attend they will be replced with 17th and below until a full 16 draw is complete.

Each Friday night is a stand-alone event and everyone is welcome to enter subject to the appropriate fees. .

NB: Each event also awards GP points which are extra to the Saturday/Sunday awards.

 

Position Warm-up GP
1st 20.60 20.21
2nd 16.50 15.25
3&4 12.40 10.24
5 to 8 9.30 7.25
9 to 16 7.20 6.50
17 to 32 4.10 5.50
All others 3.27 5.50

 

The whole idea of the Warm-up is to encourage Friday night attendance so to this end any scores of equal value will be sorted in an AP (Attendance Point) order (as already used in the BBT listing). All players get 3.27 points for entering. This sum is then increased according to position.

 

Please remember, each knockout starts at 21.00 prompt!
Late entrants are liable to be denied entry.

Going down: Uli Koch, Nicky Check, Stephen Carder, Wayne Joseph, Cohava Bonard, Frederick Bonard and Jon Barnes.

Going out: A bunch of 7.20s.

With just July's English Open to go many of those 9.30s are going to drop out or down. If you want to have a go at the Championship in November you need to enter in July.

The Final Play-offs November 2017

A few of the Top 16 Qualifiers didn't turn out which meant players lower than 16th were able to enter (as I've said before, it's a good idea to attend just in case others fail to). In the semi-final I (Michael Crane) got the better of my regular doubles partner, Richard Biddle (last year's winner); and Brian Lever saw off Crispin Duke in his semi-final.

Both Brian and I were looking to be the first to win it twice .... and Brian prevailed. I'll have another go next year.
