The new double round robin format was well received at BAPTO 2018, keeping teams playing Friday and Saturday, with 6 matches of pool before any chance of being knocked out. Every team that attended was guaranteed 48 frames of pool, with 64 teams going through to the Sunday knockout stages and sharing in a massive £16,000 prize fund. Prizes were paid down to the last 64 in the Men’s singles, giving many more players a share of the prize fund. Visit the BAPTO Facebook group for the weekend pics, videos and banter.
Only another 6 months before registration opens for BAPTO 2019 and just under 7 months until the Novice weekend of the Golden 8 Ball festivities!
