War Of The Roses 2016

Red Rose players must have either been born in or now reside in Lancashire, Merseyside or Cheshire whilst the White Rose players must have either been born in or now reside in one of the four Yorkshire counties.
If you qualify on both counts, place of birth takes priority and you must play for that county.

We need a minimum of 8 players per county.

8 - 12 players per county
Stage One (To be completed by 31st July) - Round Robin format with 2 groups per county. Top 2 in each group move forward to stage two
Stage Two (To be completed by 31st October) - Again, Round Robin format with the top 2 finishers from each group in stage one.
Stage Three (To be completed by 14th December) - The 2 winners of stage two groups (1 from Yorkshire, 1 from Lancashire) will then play a best of 3 series to determine the winner.

13+ players per county
Stage One (To be completed by 31st July) - Round Robin format with 3 groups per county. Top 2 in each group move forward to stage two
Stage Two (To be completed by 31st October) - Again, Round Robin format with the top 2 finishers from each group in stage one.
Stage Three (To be completed by 14th December) - The winners of stage two groups (1 from Yorkshire, 1 from Lancashire) will play a best of 3 series to determine the winner.

There doesn't have to be equal numbers per county. For example if there were 10 from Yorkshire and 14 from Lancashire the Yorkshire players would play the 8-12 players rule and the Lancashire players would play the 13+ players rule.

Rules

All matches will be 11 points and would preferably be played 'live', so stage one groups will be assigned geographically. If unable to play 'live' online play will be acceptable.
The entry fee would is £20 with the winner receiving 75% and the runner-up 25%. There will also be a £5 registration fee which will be used to purchase a perpetual trophy engraved with winners name and to be kept by them at their home/club for 12 months. If there is a balance left from the reg fees this will be added to the prize money.

Tie break rules
1. Head to Head result between tied players
2. Points difference (points scored – points conceded)
3. Play off between tied players. An 11 point match shall be played

Once a match has been played email the result including the match score (may be needed for tie breaks) to me.
