BCPPL presents “The BC X-Division”
July 12/13 2008
The BCPPL is pleased top announce the formation of a new element to our Provincial series, the BC X-Division.
This new division is based on the current worldwide accepted X-ball format adapted by the NXL, PSP, Millenium series, and the MR series. We will also have all of the elements of a professional X-ball event, electronic scoreboard, full team pits, and a 2008 full NXL/PSP field. Layouts will be based on upcoming PSP events, giving any players/teams (playing PSP) a chance to practice the field in a competitive tournament environment.
The new off-shoot series of the BCPPL is the most affordable form of X-ball ever offered. The old X-Ball format used in past years was simply not financially sustainable without huge sponsorships. This new format is just as (or more) exciting and much cheaper for players. Of course you will also see the same quality event players have come to expect from BCPPL/CPPL tournaments!
This new division will be capped at 8 teams , and will offer huge cash prizes at every event! Because of the expressions of intrest from many teams, we anticipate that we will hit the cap within a couple of days of opening registration.
Teams playing the regular BCPPL series will be offered first right of refusal for all eight team spots available.
There will be 1 event in 2008, and 3 events in 2009. Teams playing the upcoming July event will be given first right to a spot for the whole 2009 series.....provided they participate in regular BCPPL events.
