Monday League Rules.

Section 1: General Rules.

£20.00 Entry Fee. This covers your first 5 League Fixtures.

Players are required to pay a £4.00 match fee for every League fixture and share the table hire cost with their opponent.

All match fee payments should be made before playing your fixture (where possible).
Payments can be made by Bank Transfer.
Account Details On Request.

Players should keep themselves aware of their "Match Fee Balance" before playing their next fixture.

A "ZERO" tolerance is in place for the "Owing" of match fee's. A -01 pt. penalty will be given to players who owe "ANY" amount of match fee. Players will have until Midnight on Sundays to clear their balance before the penalty kicks in. This would continue into the following week incurring extra penalty's until fee's have been cleared.

All fixtures play on a Monday. A Tuesday is "Optional" and must be agreed on by both players. If a Tuesday fixture day has been arranged, players must inform the League Organiser of this so it can be displayed on the fixtures page "BEFORE" 4.30pm on Mondays.

The "Home" player has the responsibility to ensure that their fixture is on for that week. The "Home" player should find out in advance if their opponent will be available to play and if not the "Home" player has the responsibility to "Postpone" the fixture. If the Home player is not responsible for the postponement, please state so when postponing.

Players have until 4.30pm on Monday's to Postpone their fixture (even if you've agreed another match day with your opponent). After this time, you'll be expected to appear and play your fixture. Failure to postpone before 4.30pm and not appearing for your fixture, will result in the "Home" player receiving a 3-0 loss and a -01 pt. League Penalty. Match fee's would still apply.

Players that have arrange an alternative match day need to "Postpone" their fixture if it is not to be played on a Monday (even if it's arranged for the same week). Failure to "Postpone" would result in the "Home" player receiving a 3-0 loss and a -01 pt. League Penalty. Match fee's would still apply.

By Postponing your fixture, you will be given 28 days to arrange an alternative fixture date. The player postponing the fixture is responsible for the re-arrangement of the fixture and is in line for a Penalty if fixture is not played out.

Players can check the website fixtures page after 4.30pm on Mondays to ensure their fixture is still valid before heading to the Club.

There will be at least 2 weeks of fixtures displayed on the website to help you plan ahead.

Matches will consist of 3-frames. 1-point per frame won.

The Highest Break Prize of £1.00 per break point is for all high breaks from all Leagues and Cup Competitions. One highest break from each League/Cup. Players will share the prize if more than 1 high break exists.

Players with "Back-Games" should arrange to play them "After" their current weekly fixture. Your opponent for that week should not be left waiting.

During match play, you are the referee. You should call out the break as it occurs, replacing colours as they are potted and when the break has completed, update the scoreboard. The scoreboard should be checked by each player after the latest score has been added to both players agreement. The ref’s decision is final.

Players who leave the league before it's completion will have their previous played fixtures marked as "Void". Points will be removed from players who have already played these fixtures with match fee's being refunded to the players effected. Future fixtures will be marked "Free Week" with no points available. Any "High Breaks" made by the player leaving the league during these previous played fixtures will be "Void". Any Cup fixtures would also be "Void".

There is no miss rule in this league.

Section 2: Player Penalties.

Deliberate Foul:
Any player thought to have played a shot that is clearly/obviously not going to reach its intended/previously declared target or is deemed to have not made a valid effort to get out of a snooker legally, will forfeit the frame. If you cannot physically play a shot without it being a foul then it is a re-rack (only if no snookers are required). So no situation exists to warrant a deliberate foul or anything that can be considered one.

Any player failing to attend their match by the time arranged by both players will forfeit a frame every 15 minutes up to the maximum 3 frames. Waiting players must remain in the club until the maximum 3 frames time has lapsed to receive the league points. A Player "No-Show" will also incur a -01 pt. league Penalty.

Players going over the 28 day Play-By date will have a 3-0 lose and a -01 pt. Penalty against the Player Responsible for the Postponement. Match Fee Would Still Apply.

The maximum amount of Postponed Matches any player can be responsible for at any one time is limited to 3 Matches. This is for League matches only. Players going over this will give their opponent from their 1st Postponed match a 3-0 win and receive a -01 pt. Penalty. Match Fee would still apply.

The maximum start any player can give or receive is 80.

Any query regarding points scored during a frame or points added to wrong score will be a void frame. This frame should be re-racked.

During your match, please respect the other players playing their matches around you by keeping the noise level down to a minimum. The League Organiser will turn the table light off on players who are making the excessive noise and they will have to play their fixture when all other fixtures have been completed.

Snooker can be a very frustrating game as we all know but shouting out aloud is not acceptable. When you have completed your fixture, leave the snooker room quietly.

A football card is on sale every week at £1.00 per team. Winner receives £20.00. This funds the league prize money. The card will be left behind the bar for players choosing to play out with the normal Monday fixture day.

If you have holidays planned for this season, please let us know in advance the dates. Please remember that the 28 day play-by rule would be activated on games cancelled during holiday dates.

Handicaps:

Players are responsible for knowing and playing off their correct handicap. Playing off an incorrect handicap will "Void" the match and it will need to be replayed.

Handicaps will automatically change after every 2 played League matches (6 frames). This is based on your frame wins and losses.

Handicaps are 0.5 points per frame.

Handicaps are given to players in good faith and in the spirit that they will be used by a player to mark improvements in their own game and allow them to compete on an equal basis with better competitors – not to gain an unfair advantage.

Final Note:

If you are not playing a match then you should not be in the snooker room. Please don't disturb players while the match is in progress. If asked to leave the snooker room by any player, please do so quietly. If you have permission to watch a match in progress, do not disturb the players.

Players who have completed their fixture and are standing at the bar area should also keep the noise level down to a minimum. This noise carries down to the snooker room causing annoyance to players currently playing their fixture.

Thank You.
