Super 6s – Rules

NIBA Super 6’s Competition(s) – Rules and Information

  • Each team will consist of 3 Pairs.
  • Each of the 3 games will be 3 bowls pairs, with 2 set of 9 ends.
  • Trial ends prior to the first set must only be 2 bowl.
  • A set won is worth 1 point, a drawn set is worth ½ point each.
  • If, a game ends 2 sets to nil, then a bonus point is awarded to the successful pair.
  • If after 2 sets a game is 1½ – ½, then the pair winning a set gains the bonus point.
  • If, however, after 2 sets played the score is 1 set each, a best of 3 ends tie-break set will commence, worth 1 further point.
  • In the tie-break, it is ends won regardless of shots scored.
  • An individual game can therefore be won 3 – 0, 2½ – ½ or 2 -1.
  • This process, repeated over the pairs 3 games played, may produce an overall match winner, best of 9 points.
  • If, however, points are level at 4½ – 4½, each team will choose 1 pair to play a best of 3 ends tie-break to determine the overall winners. Again, it is ends won.
  • There are no burnt ends, the jack is to be re-spotted to the 2 metre “T.”
  • Games are to commence at 6:30pm, and in the event of a Club having 2 teams drawn at home on the same night, those games will be played on either half of the green.
  • Games will start following a coin toss to decide who plays first, as in a regular league game. The team winning the toss will choose, in each pairing individually, whether to keep or give away the jack. That choice transfers in the second set to the other pair. If a tie break is required, in any situation, then winner of the toss gets the choice on the first and third ends of the tiebreak. Again, that choice is transferred in the second set.

Super 6s Entries & Notes for Divisions 1 & 2

Total number of teams entered = 21 ie 7 groups of 3 teams (see below)

In all 7 groups teams play each other home and away.

The 7 Group Winners proceed to the QFs, along with best points scoring Runner Up team.
The group winners will be seeded 1-7 according to points scored (then games won, then sets won if necessary). The team qualifying as a runner up will be seeded 8.

The Quarter Final draws will be as follows:
No. 1 vs No. 8
No. 2 vs No. 7
No. 3 vs No. 6
No. 4 vs No. 5

*If the 8th Seed was in the same group as the No.1 Seed then they will face the No.2 Seed
instead, with 1 playing 7, as the runner up team cannot face their group winner in the QFs*

The Semi Final draw will be as follows, with the games played at neutral venues unless
teams drawn to play each other are from the same club or are sharing the same green.

SF 1 – Highest Remaining Seed vs Lowest Remaining Seed
