WELCOME TO THE BIRSTALL & DISTRICT POOL LEAGUE
Next Meeting: Monday 2 December 2019
8pm start, Central Club, Batley
Apologies for the delay in starting the averages this season, as many of you are aware Paddy deals with the averages; however he has plenty on his mind at the moment and although he thought at the beginning of the season that he would be fine to carry out his normal duties he has not been able to.
Emma has taken over the averages for the time being and they are now up to date to week 9; however, there are some teams still to submit their registration forms.
Thank you to the majority of the league for your understanding with this delay, I can assure you they will be kept up to date more regularly from now on. Thank you
The first round draws for the Scotch Doubles, Singles A and Singles B knockouts are now available. These have been issued by email to the current mailing list, if you have not received the email and wish to be added to the list, please do let us know.
The proposed running schedule for the season is also available, please note, this will be adhered to where possible but is subject to change: Knockout Format

There have been a few separate reports in recent times to the Committee about teams arriving at away venues and not respecting the rules of the venue/landlord. Can we please remind all teams that when you go to play away, the rules of the venue are there to be adhered to i.e. if there are signs re No Swearing, please try to calm your language and respect other customers, likewise if there are any signs regarding the use of illegal substances, please do not do it on their premises (ideally don't do it anywhere regardless of if there are signs or not!!).
All matches are to be played in a sporting manner in accordance with Rule 33 of the BDPL rules and this covers all aspects of the night from the way you treat your opposing players, other customers, the bar staff, landlord and venue as a whole.
Any incidents which are reported to the Committee will be investigated and any evidence of wrongdoing will result in action being taken by the Committee including expulsion from the league.
