Organiser Richard Dyke (left) has today published details of the ambitious format and draw for the 2017 Executioners Cup. Replacing the old Singles Ladder (which has been won for the last two years by Andy Pringle), the Cup starts off with a round-robin league system, in which the players are split into four groups – and which even allows for late entrants. From these groups, the top two players in each progress to a knockout tournament, which will produce a champion by the middle of May (we hope!). The ambition is that the league system will be completed by the end of March, with the quarter- and semi-finals played in April, and the final in May. For full details of the tournament, visit the 2017 Executioners Cup page on our website, where the leagues will be updated as soon as matches have been played.
