Due to circumstances beyond our control. All League activity has been suspended until further notice. Updates, when we have them, will be on this site and the facebook page There are many calls asking when the league will restart. WE JUST DON’T KNOW we are waiting for Boris to make an announcement on this

a) Rule 1 (Teams and playing format)

  1. Playing rules are the world eight ball pool federation rules, and a copy must be displayed in the vicinity of the pool table. Matches will be played on a format of thirteen singles for world rules. Two points will be awarded for each match won.
  2. Players can play up to two frames per match if required, but no player is allowed to play twice within the first 6 frames. (e.g. a player can play no. 1 & 7 or 6 & 7 or 12 & 13 etc. But cannot play 1 & 6 or 5 & 6 etc. If a team has insufficient players to complete the first six frames then the remaining frames up to and including no. 6 are claimed, prior to the players being allowed to play again. If after this the match is still not fulfilled then the remaining legs may be claimed. (Teams are not required to wait for five minutes prior to claiming the remaining frames once the game has commenced.)
  3. Should a team captain state that they wish use the time rule, it must be applied. If a team refuses to use the time rule on the other teams request at the start of the match they forfeit the break for the rest of the match. If neither team makes such a request, it will be assumed that the captains choose not to play the time rule from the start of the match, the rule cannot then be invoked at any other time during the match, unless both captains agree. Except in finals of any team cup competition where the minute rule will apply
    (If one team wants the minute rule, it will be enforced.  The home team will ref the games as normal and the away team will be the timekeepers. If the opposition refuses this request they will also forfeit all chances to break for the entirety of the match. The team wanting to use the minute rule will also now become the timekeepers if that is the home team in question.)
  4. As a team cannot win a match with less than four players, a minimum of four players over the course of the match is required to constitute a team.
  5. Fees as agreed at a.g.m. – all monies to be paid up front at registration meeting.
  6. The colour of chalk used must conform to the ‘standard’ green or blue. Penalty for using other coloured chalk will be a standard foul (2 visits) for each use. The referee’s decision will be final.
  7. Should a team captain state that they wish to lag for the break, it must be applied. If a team refuses to lag at the other teams’ request at the start of the match they forfeit the break for the rest of the match. If neither team makes such a request, it will be assumed that the captains choose not to lag from the start of the match, the rule cannot then be invoked at any other time during the match, unless both captains agree.
