Tournament Details

  • February 24th, 2024 at the Lower Playfield in Goffstown NH.
  • Doors at 10:30 AM, Tournament starts promptly at 11:30.
  • 32 player limit
  • This event is IFPA sanctioned
  • Balanced Target Matchplay (7/5/3/1 to 56) with a finals component. Minimum TGP 92%. Expected TGP expected over 112%.
  • Registration begins at Noon Eastern on Saturday, February 3rd.
  • $25 per player ($15 prize pool, $9 house fee for free play, electricity offset, snacks and drinks, $1 IFPA Endorsement fee) is due via Paypal/Venmo within 72h of registration. Cash at door accepted for players who have played 2 tournaments in the last year here — you must contact Derek or Jordan to make arrangements if you’re paying cash at door or some other way.

Target Matchplay using IFPA Scoring (7/5/3/1 or 7/4/1), on alternating banks of “longer playing” and “shorter playing” games. In the spirit of love, all pairings will be balanced, meaning you should get an opportunity to play with everyone throughout the day! The end of the tournament will be nigh when one player hits 56 points (The year Ian Curtis was born — look it up kids). Play will continue until either: 4 players have reached the target score, or 3 additional rounds of play have been completed after the first person has hit the target. Any exact ties for top 4 will be broken on a 3 ball game of Grand Prix (or similar, if the game is unavailable at the time of the tiebreak).

The top 4 will compete in a 4 game playoff in Build-A-Bank format. The 1st seed will have the first game pick, and will earn a subsequent pick for as many additional rounds that were played after they hit the target. Any available game picks will cascade to the next seed for choosing. (For example, if the top seed hits the target on round 9, and the last round is round 11, the top seed will choose the first 3 games, and the second seed would choose one.)

Players 5-8 will play a single game not chosen in the finals for a $20 Funspot Tokens gift card! Thank you to Funspot for furnishing this prize!

We will run a game of prize money stallball for all after the finals get underway, and you’re of course welcome to stay and play freeplay after the tourney ends for a bit as well!

We anticipate, based on past tournaments, the Matchplay portion to take roughly 4-5 hours, and the finals to take an additional hour. We have similar formats before and feel reasonably confident in these time estimates.
