2014 SAPC Open + Novice Series

This year we will be running two tournament leagues, Open (D1-D3 PALS Classifications) and Novice (D4 PALS Classification).

The leagues will be using the PALS Race format, with Open being PALS Race to 4 and Novice being PALS Race to 1.

Open will allow either PSP of Millennium Ramping capped at 12 BPS as per PALS/APPBF rulings and Novice will be a restricted mechanical/pump action only league.

Changes this year include:

  • The use of the PALS/APPBF Rules
  • The introduction of Ramping, you will have the choice of PSP or Millennium capped at 12.5BPS for 2014
  • The introduction of a new mechanical D4 for new and returning players to the sport
  • The introduction of a player classification database using the APPA, this will require teams to register online prior to events, and will allow us to track scores in real time online.
  • Endorsement from the heads of PALS/APPBF and Millennium Series/EPBF
