The event will this year be played as a complete round-robin over the two days. Master Points for matches won will be enhanced throughout.

As well as providing a rare opportunity to play with this fascinating and skilful form of scoring, the congress will be ideal for players wishing to add to their Green Point tally since there will be enhanced master points (masterpoints will be awarded for matches won at a 50% enhanced rate in the qualifier and main final of the Point-a-Board teams).

The Point-a-Board Teams is part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.

The event will this year be played as a complete round-robin over the two days. Master Points for matches won will be enhanced throughout.
