Check for team changes in your Division


All teams should now be fully paid up. If for any reason your team is in arrears with subscriptions, please come to the next meeting with full payment. Several teams have already been removed from the league for non payment.
Once all your payments to the league are complete, you may email an image of your winning scorecard to us. Details are at the bottom of scorecards.

Unfortunately, we have lost another team from Wednesday Div 5, and this leaves us with only 8 teams. The latest casualty is the Golden Lion.

Carefully read the deadline dates for submitting various competition results this month, as some vary.
It is essential that players contact the respective competition organisers in the first instance should they have any problems contacting their opponents. Failure to do so or leaving it to the last minute may result in being eliminated from the competition.
Remember that all pairs KO matches this season are being played to Scotch Doubles rules.
Results for the main Doubles comp need to be sent to the competition organiser no later than Friday March 31, as Finals Day is two days later on Sunday April 2.

A player is required to play without receiving any advice from other persons relating to the playing of the frame. Should a team member or bona-fide supporter of a player offer advice, the referee will issue a "First and Final Warning" to that person that a repetition will result in the player being penalised via a Standard Foul.
Because it may not always be possible for the Referee to hear if a statement made to a player is advice, the referee may issue the First and Final Warning on the grounds that any statement made to a player, other than general banter, is deemed to be coaching.

Please display the Bristol Pool League rule sheet near the Match Table of your team’s home venue. If there is a need to refer to them during a game, the rule sheet should be available for quick reference. For any further clarification please contact a committee who will be able to assist.

All teams for must verbally appoint referees to oversee each and every frame. This is mandatory league rule, however if you chose to ignore it, you cannot dispute a frame. Please do not in any circumstances bring a dispute if there is only one referee.

Please make every effort to attend League meetings to submit your physical scorecards and subscriptions, as losing valuable points could be costly in the long run. Failure to attend regularly could mean expulsion from the league. Meetings are held between 7.00 and 8.30pm on the first Thursday of every month at the Pied Horse.

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.
