Teams can no longer bring up to 2 players back in.
Names ; first 6 then 2 followed by 1 plus 1
First team to 6 win the match and receive 3 points
In the case of a 5 all draw each team receives 1 point.
Under no circumstances will walkovers be allowed in future, disciplinary action will be taken against
any team who fails to turn up for their match without giving the required notice (24hrs) and a valid reason.
The Secretary must be notified first of all matters regarding league & cup matches, under no circumstances
will matches be postponed, rearranged, or otherwise changed without the permission of the League Secretary.
With the new points system it's more important than ever for team captains to fill in all details on the result
cards especially the players frame wins, place a tick in the box beside the player who wins the frame.
If there's no tick beside the players name then no point will be awarded to the player, its up to both team captains to make sure that the cards are correctly marked and signed.
It was agreed that the results cards would be left into Murphys Bar Dominic St every 4th week when the Lotto payments are due, we hope all teams will comply with this request otherwise the Committee will be forced to take sanctions against the defaulters, your co-operation in this would be very much appreciated.
Unfortunately because of a few individuals within our sport, our game has been brought into disrepute lately regarding
the use of drugs and the practice of gambling on our competitions by people participating in our games.
Let nobody be under any illusions that these practices will not be tolerated in the future, measures are being introduced (random drug tests on players) to eradicate this from our games, and any of our members found to be guilty of drug taking
or gambling within our games will be expelled from our sport for life, that's how seriously we view this situation. Please click here for more information on W.A.D.A. (World Anti Doping Agency)
