Eight teams from the BBF's Double-A North, Double-A Central and Double-A South Divisions will clash this Sunday 6 September in four playoff quarter-finals, with the winners proceeding to Farnham Park on 12-13 September for the Double-A National Championship Finals.

The four quarter-finals are:

Latin Boys @ Richmond Dragons
An all Double-A South clash.

Sheffield Bladerunners @ Manchester A's
A game featuring two teams from Double-A North.

Stourbridge Titans @ Sidewinders
Double-A Central meets Double-A South.

Bolton Robots of Doom @ Long Eaton Storm
Double-A North against the unbeaten champions of Double-A Central.

All games will begin at noon on 6 September except the Stourbridge @ Sidewinders game, which will start at 1.30 pm and Latin Boys at Richmond Dragons, which will start at 1.00 pm.

Below are previews of these games.

The Stourbridge Titans cruised into the quarter-finals of the BBF’s Double-A National Championship competition on Sunday 30 August with a comprehensive mercy rule win over the Milton Keynes Coyotes in a Double-A Central wild card playoff.

The Titans, who finished second in the Double-A Central Division, will now travel to Enfield on Sunday 6 September to take on the Sidewinders, who finished second in Double-A South with a 16-4 record, in one of four Double-A quarter-finals to be played on the day.

The others will pit the Latin Boys against the Richmond Dragons in an all-Double-A South match-up, the Sheffield Bladerunners against the Manchester A’s in an all-Double-A North clash and the Bolton Robots of Doom against the Long Eaton Storm, in a game where the team that finished second in Double-A North will meet the undefeated winners of Double-A Central.

A doubleheader sweep by the Milton Keynes Coyotes over the Leicester 2Sox on Sunday 23 August, the final day of the regular season in the BBF’s Double-A Central division, put the Coyotes into the playoffs.

The Coyotes overtook the Cambridge Monarchs, who had to forfeit their doubleheader with the Stourbridge Titans.

Milton Keynes will now play the second-place Titans in Stourbridge on 30 August in the Double-A Central wild card game, with the winner advancing to Double-A quarter-finals on 6 September against the second-ranked team in Double-A South.

In a top v bottom match-up in the BBF’s Double-A Central Division on Sunday 16 August, Long Eaton lived up to their billing of heavy favourites and showed no sign of nerves in their quest for perfection when they faced the Northants Centurions.

Meanwhile, the second-placed Stourbridge Titans swept the Milton Keynes Coyotes, pushing them one game behind Cambridge in the race for the final wild card spot.

The Long Eaton Storm are two wins away from a perfect season in the BBF's Double-A Central Division, an achievement they can clinch if they manage to sweep the division’s bottom team, the Northants Centurions, on 16 August.

The team Long Eaton beat in both ends of their doubleheader on Sunday 9 August, the Cambridge Monarchs, have dropped to 7-9 on the season, and sit alongside the Milton Keynes Coyotes in the battle for the final Double-A wild card spot.
