The Knock Out Cup season in the AIPL Knock Out Cup got underway, with a total of 14 preliminary round matches being played, and there was a range of results, from 5-0 whitewashes to 5-4 final-frame deciders. Three Premier teams have been relegated into the Plate Cup, and two Division 2 sides claimed Division 1 scalps too. The draws for both the Knock Out Cup and the Plate Cup are further below...

There was three all-Premier matchups in the prelims this year, with The Rothschild Arms edging past SP Bullets 5-4, SP Blacks beating The Brickslayers 5-1, and The Vic Club claiming a 5-1 win over Honey Bee Stingerz.

The other four Premier teams all made safe passage through to Round 1, with Shootpool Sharks, New Zealand "B" both secured 5-0 whitewashes against Division 2 pair Hot Shots and Nomads respectively. New Zealand 'A' also won 5-0 against Division 1 Shootpool Blues, with Shootpool 'A' getting past division 1 Top John 5-1.

Two Division 2 teams claimed Division 1 scalps as well, with Weavers' Beavers & Balls winning 5-0 away to Kennedy GC, and The Feathers winning a 5-4 nail-biter against Dairy Maid 'A'.

And the final five spots in the first round all came from Division 1 sides comfortably winning against their Division 2 counterparts. Washington Weavers were 5-1 winners away to The C Team, as were The Roths at home against Ari Potters. Also on the 5-1 wagon were Shootpool and Wonky Shot, who also knocked out Misfits and Dairy Maid Krazies by that scoreline respectively. And Dirty Ari went one better, claiming a 5-0 whitewash over The Ari Chicks.
