ADPL SINGLES LEAGUES
I am happy to announce and thank Rileys, Aberdeen who have kindly agreed to again host the ADPL Singles Leagues for the 2017/18 season. RILEYS have a system in place whereby they need authorisation from head office to turn tables on. The result for the ADPL is that all matches should be booked as early as possible and no later than 24 hours in advance of the match. Matches can only be booked on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays where there is no team matches scheduled. Matches cannot be booked on any other day due to these being busy times in the club. To book simply go to Rileys and ask a member of staff or call 01224 591542. No bookings will be accepted via email.
The Committee would like to ask that all players continue to pay 1 pound per match per player on arrival as in previous years of the Singles Leagues. There will be a sheet left at the Bar to mark off your match as paid at arrival.
This year will see a new format of 5 tiers, a top division called the Superleague with the very best 16 players in the ADPL all competing for the large first prize and distinction of being the top player for the season. There will also be a Premier League with the next best 16 players in the ADPL also playing for a substantial first prize and the chance to get promoted to the top league. Next will be Divisions 1 to 3 all competing for chance to win some prize money and get promotion tothe next league up. It is 2 up 2 down for Superleague and Premier League, Division 1 is 2 up and 4 down, Division 2 and 3 are 4 up and 4 down.
All players taking part must be signed for an ADPL team in that season in order to take part and attend the minimum amount of league games as per the League Rules in order to claim prize money.
The ADPL Singles Leagues will be treated as a completely separate event from other ADPL events with all money being paid in plus sponsorship being paid out (less online payment fees and trophy costs). The income and expenditure will be detailed in the ADPL balance sheet made available online. All entries will now be taken online using PayPal and those not paying by the deadline will not be entered. All players must agree to the event Terms and Conditions prior to entering the event. Prize fund is guaranteed and pays out all entry fees plus sponsorship (less online payment fees and trophy costs) based on the assumption that each league has 16 players.
SUPERLEAGUE (entry fee £60)
PREMIER LEAGUE (entry fee £45)
DIVISIONS 1-3 (entry fee £40) (each league based on 16 entries - may vary)
All games are best of 12 with a 6-6 draw possible.
Prize money per league paid down to 8th place if group has full 16 player. 8th will roughly always get their entry money back.
About 2 games per month to be played. There will be some leeway for those who work offshore.
Both players to arrange a suitable time with the venue to play the match. Failure to play by deadline, 2 weeks of fixture date, may result in a void match for both players.
