The ADO is going to move forward with open format of the National Playoff Program.
* Association/Local Playoffs
* National Qualifiers (Old Regionals)
* National Finals
Association/Local Playoffs = These are events that help players win their $110 entry fee into the National Qualifier
National Qualifiers = These Qualifiers will be played in the same way that the OLD REGIONALS were, $110 entry fee, 3 leg Round Robin, 1 person advancing for every 8 participants. What is different from the past regionals is the fact that there can be more than one National Qualifier in a geographic Region, players will be able to play more than one National Qualifier, and you can play in any qualifier, anywhere in the country. Once you qualify for the National Finals, you can no longer participate in future National Qualifiers for that specific National Playoff Program. The player will keep the HIGHEST amount of points the player received for a National Qualifier for that specific National Playoff Program. All National Qualifiers MUST be posted on the ADO National Qualifier calendar at least 14 days prior to the date of the qualifier. All results must be sent to the ADO office within 7 days of the event.
National Finals = WINMAU WORLD MASTERS, ALL STAR CHALLENGE & NAT’L 501 CHAMPIONSHIP, US TEAM, CRICKET SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP.
All official ADO Rules and Regulations pertaining to ADO Regionals will be updated within the next week.
