WELCOME TO THE BIRSTALL & DISTRICT POOL LEAGUE
Next Meeting: Monday 24 November 2014, 8:00 pm
Central Club, Batley
Please ensure that all match sheets are handed in by Meeting 13 (22 December 2014) - Any match for which there has not been at least one sheet handed in will result in each team being deducted a point as per Rule 22.
Entries are now been taken for the 2015 Season which commences in February 2015. The gap seems long as the last match of this season is on 16 December 2014 however there is a 2 week break over Christmas before the knockout semi finals will be able to be commenced.
Registration forms were issued at the meeting on Monday and are also available here:

The Quarter Final draws for the Singles A, Doubles and Mixed Doubles knockouts are now available in the relevant sections of the website following the live draws at the meeting on Monday. If you require any contact numbers please call, text or email on: 07975 788380 / email@example.com
Due to a number of comments recently about the knockout draws and how certain teams seem to be drawn against the same teams each season we have now decided that all draws will be done using the numbers machine at the Central Club.
After the meetings Ian Lee will decide which knockouts are due to be released at the next meeting, allocate a number to each entry in those draws and then a draw will be done using the numbers machine. This means that some draws may already be determined before the results have come in for the previous round. The draws will still appear on the website on the Sunday before their release on a Monday. As the draws will take place straight after the meetings if anyone wishes to stay and see the draws taking place so they have an idea of their next opponents they are able to do so.

ATTENTION ALL TEAMS
Any teams who continually fail to attend games will face action from the Committee and I refer you all to Rule 27 of the BDPL League Rules which states:
27 Teams not turning up for matches will forfeit all points.
The offended team will receive average points (min of 5) plus bonus points.
The offending team will be fined ten pounds which will be payable within fourteen days to the league
In the past we have not enforced this rule and the league have covered the £10 payments for food when requested. This rule will now be enforced, any team who fail to attend a match without giving reasonable notice and cancelling through the Committee as stated at the AGM will face this fine.
This fine will go on top of the league fees and therefore, as with the league fees, if it still owed by the AGM then subscription to the league for the new season will be refused.
