2020/21

Section 1: General Rules.

The League shall be known as "Dundee Snooker League".

Entry fee is £25.00 per season. This fee is non-refundable. Players are required to pay £4.00 per league fixture. No fee is payable for Cup Fixtures. All match fee payments should be made BEFORE playing your fixture. Payments can be made by Bank Transfer. Details are on your personal fixtures page.

The DEFAULT match day will be a MONDAY until changed by the HOME player before the 4.30pm DEADLINE on match days. With the current Social Distancing Rules, not all matches can be played on a Monday. The HOME player has the option of arranging another fixture TIME and DAY with their OPPONENT and THE TIVOLI. The HOME player is responsible for keeping the League Secretary informed of their chosen fixture day so as it can be displayed on the weekly fixtures page BEFORE the 4.30pm DEADLINE on the DEFAULT match day. TEXT your changed match day to 07913 410724 or use WhatsApp. Matches that display a MONDAY fixture day will be expected to play on that day. Failure to do so will result in the HOME player losing the fixture 3-0 and receiving a -03 points penalty. All weekly matches will have until Midnight on SUNDAYS to complete the fixture. The HOME player is responsible for sending in the RESULT and HIGH BREAK from the supplied contact form on this website. There will be 4 weeks of weekly fixtures displayed to help you plan ahead. Let's all keep safe.

Players will play a home and away fixture. Players with the home fixture have the choice of table. This is non-negotiable. There will be two promotion / relegation places in the leagues.

Matches will consist of 3-frames. 1-point per frame won. All players are required to share the table hire cost with your opponent. The Home player is responsible for sending in the result of their fixture along with high break on the Score Form. (For matches played out with the normal Monday).

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. There is no miss rule in this league.

If players finish the season level on points, wins + loses then positions will be decided on head-to-head results from games previously played during the league season. Albeit a play-off with the best of 3 frames will decide the outcome.

Section 2: Player Penalties.

Any player failing to postpone their match before 4.30pm on match days will forfeit the match. This will also incur a -03 points league penalty. Your opponent has no say on this rule as it is compulsory. Text or phone your cancellation to 07913 410724.

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. A -03 points league penalty would apply for non attendance. Waiting players must remain in the club until the maximum 3 frames time has lapsed to receive the league points.

Players failing to play their fixture by giving the points away to their opponent will also receive a -03 point penalty.

The maximum amount of back-games any player can be responsible for at any one time is limited to 2 matches. This is for league games only. Players going over this will lose their first back-game 3-0 plus receive a -03 points league penalty.

New player’s handicaps will be adjusted accordingly for the first 8 matches.

The maximum start any player can give or receive is 50.

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. Excessive noise will incur a warning to guilty players with 3 warnings = removal from the league. The League 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 21 day play-by rule would be activated on games cancelled during holiday dates.

Handicaps:

Handicaps will automatically change after every 4 played league matches (12 frames).

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.
