There must be at least 6 entries for a division to run. Each division will be limited to 16 players. If there are more than 16 entries the Tournament Director (TD) will take those signed up first (the remaining entries may start as an alternate if a starter doesn't start their first match).

If divisions are merged: a "B" player playing an "A" player would only need 7 points to win in a game to 10; a "C" player would only need 5 points against an "A" player; "C" playing "B" would need 5 points in a game to 8.


Participants are expected to know the rules for carom billiards, the general rules of billiards, and the rules and regulations governing tournament play. The player chair rule will be enforced. During a match the referee will be the only person allowed to handle the balls.

Signup will close Monday October 9 at 5:30pm. The schedule for the tournament will be posted shortly thereafter.

Choice of break for each set will be established by lag.

Additional details about these tournaments may be found at the Tournament Board in the student center game room. If you have questions about the tournaments you can ask our Tournament Director (TD), Ray Piworunas.
