Dengie Hundred Pool League
Welcome
General Stuff Match Start Times Matches must commence at   8:00PM even if the whole team has not yet arrived so as to ensure that matches finish at a reasonable time, if a Team is unable to start before      8:30PM  then the Team failing to start will be deemed to have forfeited the match unless the start time in changed by mutual agreement between both Team Captains. Games cannot be re-arranged to another date, a team must play on the scheduled date even if they have less than 6 players. Missed Games & Cancellations If a team fails to turn up they will receive a penalty of a 5 point deduction. However, we all want all of the games to be played so the captains should arrange the game to be re-scheduled. We would hope that this resolves all cases of no-shows. The organising team will mediate if necessary. In the unlikely event that this cannot be resolved, if the team that did not turn up does not agree to reschedule they will be excluded from the league. If the exclusion happens after the first half of the season (when the excluded team has played all of the other teams once) then the results for the first half only will stand. If the exclusion happens before that point then all of the results involving the excluded team will be removed. Registering Results A text message should be sent by the home captain to Tim Wharton on (07957 294404) on the Monday evening or Tuesday so that the results can get updated quickly on the web site. The Text should include a photo of the complete score card.

The main points from the AGM in 2015 were: All tables should have a D. Nomination of a free ball after a foul is not required. Nomination of the pocket to pot the black is required - as currently played. After a foul the cue has to be hit from where it ends up (assuming it stops on the table) - as currently played. Following a foul, if the next player only has the black and the opponents ball/s on the table, they can pot the black and an opponent's ball in the same shot, i.e. a combination shot is allowed. If the cue ball is touching another ball then the player has to play away so that the ball the cue ball it is touching does not move, otherwise it is deemed to be a push shot. A player cannot play for more than one team No shows: There were several proposals about what to do when a team does not turn up, the following was agreed: If a team fails to turn up they will receive a penalty of a 5 point deduction However, we all want all of the games to be played so the captains should arrange the game to be re-scheduled.
