2-Setting-Up Play Times & Sign-Up Sheets
After you have decided what days your club is going to offer shootouts, you will need to create your club play times and also your shootout sign-up sheets to get players ready to play!
Visit our Player Ratings & Ranking to learn how scoring and movement of players in a shootout works.
Technology resistant players? No problem! Keep in mind that a pool has either 4 or 5 players and so as long as one of those players is willing to enter scores, you’re good to go. You can also decide to have court monitor(s) who can enter scores for players. As a club manager, you can even play in your own organized shootout…it’s that easy!
How many rounds to play? Most clubs do two rounds of shootout in one session. A round typically lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes based on games 11 win by 1. After the 1st round, you simply “Create Another Shootout” and you are able to get players back out on the courts within a few minutes. You can also decide to up the points per game (e.g. 15 win by 1) and just make the 1st round last longer and only do 1 round. It’s your choice.
