MVP Recognition

 
 
 Note: Players need an minimum of 6 matches played with their team in the current session to qualify for MVP. They also need to have 10 lifetime matches within the last two years by the date of the actual MVP Tournament.
 

MVP is a program that recognizes players for their performance during weekly play each session through their MVP points

Players earn MVP performance points toward MVP by calculating the number of Points Earned divided by the number of Points Available (PA) during the session.

8-Ball example: In every 8-Ball match, you have 3 points available to win. If you play 10 matches, you have 30 points available to win (3 x 10). If you win a total of 13 points in those 10 matches, then the calculation is 13 divided by 30 = 43%. This means that you won 43% of the Points Available (PA) to you during the session.

9-Ball example: In every 9-Ball match, you have 20 points available to win. If you play 10 matches, you have 200 points available to win. If you win a total of 162 points in those 10 matches, then the calculation is 162 divided by 200 = 81%. This means you won 81% of the Points Available (PA) to you during the session.

Ties are broken in the following order: Total number of matches played, win percentage, performance points, lifetime win percentage. Summer Double Play will count towards the MVP calculations. Players can track their personal MVP stats in their division by logging onto their online Members Services & Stats page.

At the end of each session, the MVP points for all players in all divisions of 8-Ball are combined together and the same is done for all divisions of 9-Ball. Each list is separated by skill levels and will be posted following the final week of the session. The players finishing high enough in the standings are invited to compete in the MVP Tournament following the end of the session.  Players must have at least 10 lifetime matches within 2 years by the date of the MVP Tournament.  They also must be on an active team (in the format they qualified for) in the subsequent session.

For our 8-Ball divisions, there are 6 MVP tournaments in which players compete against other players of the same skill level; 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,  and  7.

The 9-Ball MVP tournaments join together players of 3 different skill levels as follows: skill level 1-2-3 bracket, 4-5-6 bracket, and a 6-8-9 bracket.
