THURSDAY BEGAN WITH MINGLE/SINGLES: 6 — 16 FRAME GAMES (new partner/court) EACH GAME. THOSE WITH MOST WINS (points scored used as tie breaker) WOULD THEN PLAY FRIDAY. THE TOP 16 LADIES AND TOP 16 MEN (Separate Divisions) WOULD DRAW A PARTNER (Friday) THAT THEY WOULD STAY WITH FOR POSITION ROUND AND FINAL AND ALSO PLAY 2 of 3 — 75 POINT GAMES INSTEAD OF FRAME GAMES (as they did Thursday).
SOUND CONFUSING? IT REALLY WASN’T (even though rain created some adjustments), IT PROVED TO BE VERY FAIR, GIVING ALL PLAYERS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO WIN.
