Players Tied on Points
A) If players are level on the same number of points, positions are determined by whoever won the most points in any single event during the season.
B) If positions can’t be decided by (A) the countback method will be applied.
.1 This means positions will be decided by how many points were earned during the most recent weekend on this season’s Women’s Series.
.2 Should this still not separate players, you continue this process looking at the most recent Women’s Series weekend working backwards throughout the season until players can be separated.
C) If players have an exactly identical ranking points record throughout the entire season, positions will be decided by whoever won the greatest number of frames in their losing match at the most recent Women’s Series weekend.
.1 Should this still not separate players, you continue this process looking at the most recent Women’s Series weekend working backwards throughout the season until players can be separated.
D) In the event that players still can’t be separated, the players involved may have to contest a playoff – the details of which would be decided by the Ultimate Pool Group.
Should an issue arise that is not covered above, the decision of the Ultimate Pool Group will be final.
The Ultimate Pool Group has the right to alter the above in exceptional circumstances.
