In Texas, they literally won't allow a ten year old to play in the 12-and-under division? How is this possible??
I'm truly confused, Am I missing something here?
I am not sure this is completely accurate. According to their published local rules, it seems that to play yellow ball, they player needs to be nine and to either a) win four green ball tournaments or b) participate in 10. Given the frequency and geographical availability of green ball tournaments, this might take even a really good player quite a while, but I am not sure.
