• If you are a listed INTERMEDIATE PLAYER, you are ineligible to play on a Regular Team. You can play on an Intermediate or Master Team. (EXCEPTION: One (1) Intermediate FEMALE will be allowed to play on an Open Regular Team.)
• If you are a listed MASTER PLAYER, you are ineligible to play on a Regular Team. You can play on a Master Team or you can play on an Intermediate Team if you are the only Master on that Intermediate Team.
• All players have the option of competing in a higher division than they are listed.
• Regular Classic Singles and Regular Senior Singles are only available for Regular Division players of proper age. There is a separate Classic 8-Ball Division for Master & Intermediate players of proper age.
It is very difficult to foresee every possible situation that can arise. Therefore, any player who hasn’t played in the World Championships in the last 3 years, or entries of known Intermediate or Masters ability may be placed in a higher Division at the discretion of the Tournament Committee.
These lists are not all-inclusive as the Tournament Committee retains final discretion, in all cases, in placement of individuals and teams in the various Divisions. Also, those wishing to voluntarily move up to a higher Division are welcome.
After an individual has been moved up to a higher division, if they do not win any prize money (exception Mini’s & Scotch Doubles) for the next 3 years, they may have the opportunity of returning to the next lower division.
