Super 6s – Rules

General

  • Each team will consist of 3 Pairs.
  • A competition week will run from a Saturday to the Friday of the following week, in the event of postponement due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
  • Each of the 3 games will be 3 bowl pairs, with 2 sets of 7 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, not shots total scored.
  • There are no burnt ends, the jack is to be re-spotted to the 2 metre “T.”
  • Games are to commence at 2pm, and in the event of a club having 2 teams drawn at home on the same day, those games will start at 1pm and 3pm, as agreed between the teams.
  • Games will start following a coin toss to decide who plays first, as in a regular league game.

Notes for Division 1 & 2

The 5 Group Winners proceed to the QFs, along with 3 best points scoring Runners-Up teams.
The top 4 points scoring teams as Group Winners will be allocated a home draw in the QFs, with the 5th Group Winner going into a random draw with the 3 best Runners-Up teams to complete the QF draw.
*Second placed teams cannot face their own Group Winner in the QFs*
The Semi Final draw will be an open draw, with the games played at neutral venues unless the teams drawn to each other play are from the same club or are sharing the same green.
The Final will be played at a neutral venue, again unless the teams are from the same club or are sharing the same green.
