Season 2016/17 will see the sixth season of the highly popular XS PROMOTIONS
ABERDEEN SINGLES LEAGUES with all matches played out of
Rileys. This is the first ever ADPL event played to a singles league
format and is quite possibly the strongest singles league in Scotland.
These are the only singles leagues endorsed and run by the Aberdeen & District Pool League.We are delighted to announce that XS PROMOTIONS
will be sponsoring the event again this year.
A total of £300 sponsorship shall be added to entry fees to give the
biggest prize fund played for in any ADPL event with in excess of
c.£4,000 expected (dependent on entries).
There will be a top division called the XSP Aberdeen Superleague with the
very best 16 players in the ADPL all competing for the £400 first
and distinction of being the top player for the season. There will also
be an XSP Aberdeen 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. Beneath
the top 2 leagues shall be a series of XSP Championship Leagues all competing at a similar level of ability for
chance to get into the XSP Premier League. It is 2 up 2 down for all the leagues except that XSP the Premier League will have the same number of relegation spots as there are XSP Championship Leagues (where the winner is guaranteed to get promotion).
All players taking part must be signed for an
ADPL team in that season in order to take part and fulfill the minimum
amount of league games as per the League Rules in order to claim prize
Remember that there is a £1 fee per
player per match payable to Rileys prior to starting the match - no pay
As of 2016/17 the XSP Aberdeen 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 bi-annual 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 funds 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.
Please note that under new rules put in place at the 2016 ADPL AGM that if there are drop outs then players down to 4th in the next league will be asked to take their place in the higher league. Should they refuse to take their place they will be excluded from the event for the next 2 seasons. If it goes lower than 4th then the Committee can invite a player they feel is of suitable ability to taker the place. Players dropping out from any league will lose their spot in the event and will not be able to rejoin that season.
