Fixtures

 

Please remember that from the 2019-2020 season the process for results and match sheets changed.  BOTH teams are responsible for ensuring they send a copy of the match sheet through following each match by 11pm THURSDAY.  Results are not accepted without the match sheet.  ANY team who does not send through a copy of the sheet WILL lose 2 points.

 

Sheets are acceptable:

via Email: bdpl1987@hotmail.com

via Picture Message or WhatsApp to the league results line (07975 788380) - please do not send these to individual members of the Committee

Facebook Messenger: https://www.facebook.com/birstall.districtpoolleague.7 - it is best if you are "friends" with the page to use this function to stop it being put in the message requests section - if you are not already friends with the League, send a request!

 


 

MATCH CONDUCT

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.
