Knowledge Base - 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
  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.
