NBL Scoring

BEST OF 5, FIRST TO 9.


Thrilling to watch and to reward attacking gameplay, AJ Bell NBL match-night games will be played to a fast paced 'first to 9 points' rally scoring system, getting to the critical points quicker.


In each of the five events played to 'best of 5 games' in a regular match-night fixture, the first four games will be played to 'first to 9' with no extended scoring or need for a clear winning margin.  

Games can be won 9-8 so it really is winner takes all.


TIE-BREAK:  FIRST TO 5

If the scoreline reaches 2-2 in games, then a final game tie-break will be played out with its own game-changing scoring system, unique to the AJ Bell NBL

Adding to the electric atmosphere, the final game tie-break will be fast and full of tension as it plays to 'first to 5 points' or is won by the team player who achieves a clear three point lead up to 5 - whichever is earlier!

To encourage fast starts and rousing comebacks, tie breaks can also be won 3-0 or 4-1 in addition to the 'first to 5' scoring format so there is extra incentive for players to come out firing for the win.
