Dengie Hundred Pool League
General Stuff Match Start Times Matches can commence at   8:00PM  but no later than 8.30    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 not turned up for the match unless the start time is 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.
Start of 2017/2018 season Start date will be October 2nd. Fixtures are now on the Weekly Results page and see the Venues page at the end for addresses and post codes. This year we have had a few new teams enter which would have made Division 2 much bigger than Division 1. So rather than automatically promote/relegate teams I have spoken to the affected captains and some have preferred to stay in Div 1 while others have preferred to go or stay in Div 2. We have also put 2 new teams directly into Division 1 to create a good balance between the 2 leagues. Singles & Doubles Entries are now being taken. Please text Tim on 07957 294404 to request. Entries close on October 15th. We now have a Facebook Page (thanks Ben), see 1783934715161143/ :
