BRISTOL POOL league

Check for team changes in your Division


The Committee of the years have encouraged League members to display respect to opponents. Last season we had to issue warnings to several players, and we had to speak to teams about coaching and their overall conduct. We fully understand that from time to time games can get prickly, however when you are at an away venue please respect the opponents and the venue. We have had reports that a player stole a cue from the away venue. Although the cue was returned this was only after the home team’s intervention. This is unacceptable, and we will be speaking to each team to help identify the culprit.

All additional and transfer requests MUST be sent to bristolpoolleague@btinternet.com only. The sheer number of requests that go to the League Secretary is currently out of control. This method of request must be adhered to. Please do not text as your texts will not be replied to. You will receive a confirmation email with further instruction.
Official forms should then be returned at the following league meeting with all fees. Failure to submit these forms will result in any frames won by these players, being forfeited.

Teams that lose in the preliminary and first round of the Direct Source Wednesday League Cup will automatically be entered into the Ron Regozzoli Memorial Plate. Any team that failed to attend either their prelim or first round match, thus forfeiting the match, will NOT be entered into the Plate.
The same rule will apply to the Singles and Scotch Doubles competition, where players/pairs forfeit prelim and first round matches.

Entry forms for the Youth competition are now online and should be returned at the January meeting. Please note that the age limit has been raised to 23, and this year’s comp will be played on a monthly round by round basis until we reach Finals Day.

Entries for the Singles and Scotch Doubles comps are now closed, and the draws can be found within this book. Finals nights for the Doubles shield is confirmed for July 31, and the Singles shield on July 3, 2018.
Entries for the Over 40’s singles and doubles, Seniors, Ladies Open and Mixed Doubles will be taken in the new year.

Anyone who fancies their chances of playing pool at a higher level should be aware of the Bristol County EPA World Rules trials which take place at All Stars Sports Bar on Sunday January 21.
There are places up for grabs in the Mens, Ladies and Youth teams. Further details are available from Martin Callicott 07922 061194, Ali Wade 07871 650109, or Alex De Frates 07825 882625.
Blackball County trials will take place in March.

Our current rule sheet should be displayed near the playing area of your team’s home venue. If there is a need to refer to them during a game, the current copy should be available for quick reference.

In an attempt to reduce our overheads, we have introduced an Email Information Service to provide members with monthly updates.
To help reduce costs, we would like members to subscribe to this Service. The email attachment will be identical to the book that team Captains/Secretaries have previously received by post, and will be available to all league members, not just Captains/Secretaries.
We fully understand that not everyone has access to the internet and email, so for those few teams the book will still be available by post.
Apart from the cost reduction, other advantages will be that the book will be available just a few days after the monthly league meeting, rather than the 11 days it now takes. Any mistakes that arise can be instantly corrected by sending a revised book. Any other information can be easily sent, eg, reminders of important dates such as league meetings and AGM's.
To add your name to the Service, simply send an email to bristolpoolleague(at)btinternet.com
Please include the word “Pool” in the subject line, and in the message box leave your name, team name(s), and whether you are Captain or Secretary of your team, or that you are just a playing member of your team(s). You will receive an email shortly after to confirm your inclusion in the Service.

The BPL COMMITTEE wishes everyone a happy and safe festive holiday, and we will see you at the next League meeting on January 4.
