Changes to previous seasons’ event
There will be a number of changes for this event compared to the previous seasons’ events. A summary of some of these changes is provided here.
Late Entry: There is NO LATE ENTRY PERIOD for this event. The entry deadline of Thursday 28th February will be strictly adhered to.
Venue Allocations: Some players might be lucky in so much as playing all of their matches in one venue for the whole event, but scheduling will be done such that nobody has to change venue more than once on the Friday and once on the Saturday (nobody at all will have to change venues on the Thursday or the Sunday) and where venue changes are necessary these will be coordinated between venues. A schedule will be posted when the draw is published.
Entry Limit – BUCS-UPC Snooker Championships: A maximum of 48 teams will be accepted and preference will be given to first teams, then second teams, etc then to teams highest in the competition rankings. For example, if 60 entries are received comprised of 30 first teams, 15 second teams, 10 third teams and 5 fourth teams then all of the first teams, all of the second teams and the three highest-ranked third teams would be accepted (with the fourth-highest ranked third team being first reserve, the fifth-highest ranked third team being second reserve, etc).
