Dengie Hundred Pool League Welcome Announcements General Stuff Match Start Times Matches must commence at 8:30PM even if the whole team has not yet arrived so as to ensure that matches finish at a reasonable time, if a Team is unable to start before 8:45PM without the prior and mutual agreement with the opposite team, then the Team failing to start will be deemed to have forfeited the match unless by mutual agreement between both Team Captains. Missed Games & Cancellations If a team fails to turn up they will receive a penalty of a 5 point deduction. However, we all want all of the games to be played so the captains should arrange the game to be re-scheduled. We would hope that this resolves all cases of no-shows. The organising team will mediate if necessary. In the unlikely event that this cannot be resolved, if the team that did not turn up does not agree to reschedule they will be excluded from the league. If the exclusion happens after the first half of the season (when the excluded team has played all of the other teams once) then the results for the first half only will stand. If the exclusion happens before that point then all of the results involving the excluded team will be removed. Registering Results A text message should be sent by the home captain to Tim Wharton on (07957 294404) on the Monday evening or Tuesday so that the results can get updated quickly on the web site. The Text should state: - Home captains name - Home team & score - Away team & score - Team of winning Captain’s game After the first game’s results have been sent from each captain (when the captains mobile numbers are known) a short version can be sent in the form “home score, away score, home captain result” e.g. 91W, indicating the results was a 9-1 home win and the home captain won or 28L (home team lost 8-2 and the home captain lost). Other Stuff This is your league and your website, if there is anything you would like to see added, changed (or removed!) then please drop the commitee a note to results@dhpl.co.uk  If you have any questions or queries, always best to email the organising commitee at results@dhpl.co.uk AGM 2015 Notes from the AGM and the proposals passed can be found on the: AGM page Please do go and read them, as there were decisions made which affect, amongst other things, the rules of play, penalties applicable for ‘No Shows’, and how to submit your results.
