Ambassador

The Ambassador is manufactured by Venture Entertainment and is the official Shuffleboard Table of the North American Shuffleboard Championships (NASC™) and World Championship Tournament (WCT™).

The drawing for the shuffleboard Table will take place at the 2002 NASC™ on the evening of Friday, November 1. Ticket holders need not be present to win. All registered players will receive one ticket for each event they enter at both the WCT™ in April 2002 and the 2002 NASC™. Any player attending both tournaments will receive two chances for each event entered at both contests. All players must be registered guests of the Sands Regency Hotel. Additional tickets are available for purchase at a cost of $5.00 each.

This promotion is being sponsored by Venture Entertainment of Hillside, New Jersey. Qualifying events at the WCT™ include the A/B Draw Partners on Tuesday, the five amateur Draw Partners (one per day Wednesday through Sunday), Ladies Singles, Ladies Doubles, Open Doubles and Round Robin Singles.


The 2002 WCT™ features many new offerings, including lots of action for amateurs, such as daily Draw Partner events (with auctions), Ladies Singles and Doubles, added money, pari-mutual style betting on all of the tournament action, and a chance to win a brand new Ambassador Shuffleboard Table.

One of the most exciting new features of the WCT™ is pari-mutual style betting. This works the same as it does at horse and dog racing tracks. Prior to the start of the Open Doubles, Round Robin Singles, Ladies Doubles and Ladies Singles, you can wager on who you think will finish in the top three (win, place and show). Odds and pay outs are determined by the total amount of money wagered. Additionally, you will be able to make perfecta and trifecta wagers, in which you try to pick the first and second, or first second and third place finishers. In the main event, the $1,000 true round robin singles, you will be able to bet on every game.

For the amateurs, there will be a $50.00 Draw Partners with an auction every day at 12:00 noon. Players rated .50 through 5.00 are eligible. Every day, after the conclusion of the Draw Partners, there will be four boards available for round robins and challenge games.

The Open Doubles begins on Wednesday, April 3 at 12:00 noon. There will be $3,000 of added money for this event. The format is double elimination with 15 point games and two out of three in both the winners and losers bracket. Entry fee is $500.00 per team and prize money will be distributed to the top 25% of the field.

Thursday will feature Ladies Doubles and the conclusion of the Open Doubles. Entry fee for the Ladies Doubles is $100.00 per player. The format will be the same as in the Open Doubles, double elimination with 15 point games and two out of three in both the winners and losers bracket.

On Friday the Ladies Singles and Round Robin Singles begin. The entry fee for these two events is $200.00 and $1,000.00 respectively. The format for the Ladies Singles is two out of three, double elimination, with 15 point games in both the winners and losers bracket. The top 25% of the field will receive prize money.

For the Round Robin Singles, the format is one 15 point game against every other player in the field. The player with the best record wins the tournament. Prize money for this event will go to the top 50% of the field. If this event fills up, $2,000 will be added to it.
