Entry remains at £10 per team with a maximum of four players per team.

Last year some 24 teams entered with the qualifying teams having an enjoyable day out at 4-Man Finals Day, held at the Ram's Heid. This is the ADPLís chance to give something to a chosen charity (to be confirmed) and it is hoped as many players as possible will support the event.
Tam Walkingshaw successfully defended his Cliffburn Singles title by defeating David Jack by five frames to four in this year’s final.
In a tense final Tam took the first frame after some tactical play, whilst David reverse dished the next frame to quickly make it 1-1 and then takes the lead 2-1. Tam then digs deep and reels of the next three frames to take a 4-2 lead. David gallantly holds on and he finds the determination to grind out the next two frames and square the match at 4-4. However, Tam makes most of an opportunity in the last frame and magnificently finishes the frame to win 5-4.
This was a fantastic final and a great effort by both players on the day. Thanks are extended to Lomond Leisure and the Cliffburn Hotel for their continued support of this event.
