There must be two or more tournaments of one type in an event for an extra free Grand Final of that type to be available.
The Last 4 in the Cup and Last 2 in the Plate in each type of tournament will take part in their Grand Final with the remaining entrants coming from the top players in the relevant Ranking Table who have not already qualified.
The Grand Final Prize Pools for each type of tournament are a minimum of 5% of all Entry Fees for that type of tournament in an Indoor, Outdoor or Short Mat Event
Ranking Tables and Prize Pools
There are Ranking Points Tables in 3 Levels - Overall, Event and Tournament Type with Prize Pools split 50/30/20 for the top 3 places in each table:
The Overall Ranking Points Prize Pool is a minimum of 1% of all entry fees in the BowlsChat Scramble during the 2019/20 season
The Event Ranking Points Prize Pools are a minimum of 1% of all entry fees in the Outdoor, Indoor or Short Mat Events
The Tournament Ranking Table Prize Pools are a minimum of 5% of all Entry Fees for that type of tournament in the Indoor, Outdoor or Short Mat Events
