TUESDAY is a night geared for good fun, good friends and healthy competition. Teams must have players with mixed skill levels. In addition to having a great time, part of the goal on TUESDAY is to help less experienced players improve their game.

Generally, the World Standardized Rules apply. However, the league reserves the right to implement or amend rules that will foster league play at the local level. Any changes to the rules will not take affect without reasonable notice to the players.
The format for 8-ball is a 5-person team, round robin play. This means that each team plays five rounds or matches, and each player plays once in each round. For example, in the first round player 1 on team A plays player 1 on team B. Player 2 on Team A plays player 2 on Team B, and so forth until all players have played once. The team with the most points wins the first round.
In the second round, the lineup rotates so that player 1 on Team A plays player 2 on Team B. Player 2 on Team A plays player 3 on Team B, and so forth.
The player who wins receives 10 points. The losing player gets one point for each ball pocketed. At the end of the night, the team with the highest total points wins a sixth round.
The team with the highest team average gives the other team the difference between the two teams’ averages. For example, if team A has a total average of 350, and team B has a total average of 300, then team A must give team B 50 points handicap, or 10 points per round.
At the end of each session, we have playoffs for a trip to the ACS National Championships in Las Vegas and/or cash.
