Khandallah 4-Boules Singles

28 September 2020

Participants in the Khandallah 4-Boules Singles

Seventeen players took part in the Khandallah 4-Boules Singles. The format was a 6-round Swiss of 45 minute games with no extra ends and ties were permissable.

In keeping with the experimental nature of the event, the prize pool was split into two parts. Part one was a random draw each round which saw one player win $10. The other prize pool was split so that every game winner won $1. If a player won all 6 games then their prize money was doubled.

Did the incentive make a difference? Probably not, but everyone had a lot of fun, the weather behaved and all players won some of their entry fee back.

Dave Gwerder (Upper Hutt) won all 6 games to win the inaugural Khandallah 4-Boules Singles.
