Dengie Hundred Pool League
LOOKING AHEAD to 2015
I have started looking at the calendar for 2015 and dates for the AC Cup, Singles / Doubles Tournaments and Summer League.
Based on the Winter League finishing on the 2nd March, and allowing a couple of weeks for any catch-up games needed, I would
aim to start the AC Cup on Monday 23rd March, entries for this knockout tournament will be asked for nearer the time and a
page setup online with details soon.
Singles / Doubles Tournament - I would aim to start these from Monday 6th April, again entries and details will follow in the
new year, a page will be setup for it.
These dates fall roughly in line with last years start dates, which seemed to work.
As for the Summer League, its a way off yet, but subject to number of teams will decide if we can fit it in or not, I’ll ask for levels
of interest nearer the time and we can see if it fits.
RESULTS ARE ALL UP TO DATE
New Web Pages coming soon! AC Cup, Singles & Doubles Tournament and
AGM, so check back regularly for when these go live.
A REQUEST: Please take a moment to read the Match Rules page. I have attempted to document the rules by which we have
played this and previous years, however, if I have made any errors or ommisions, please feel free to email me at
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
Insufficient players is ‘not’ a valid reason to cancel a match if you only have 4 players then you play with 4 players.
Games should only be postponed by mutual agreement between both Team Captains and under extenuating/extreme circumstances.
If a team fails to appear or no agreement is reached, then the ‘Let Down’ team will be awarded an automatic Win and maximum
points of 12, the failing to appear team will automatically Lose and score ero points for that match.
Results & Disputes
Results to be Submitted within 48hrs by the Home Captain, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or using the online form on the

To D or not to D?
Just for general consideration / discussion: I think there are only a few tables in the leagues currently that don’t have a D, but the question has
been raised (and may be raised at the AGM) as to whether every table should (or should not) have a D, and at the very least, that the home team
should ensure that the visiting team are aware (even if it appears obvious) that there is no D. Currently the understanding is that if there is no
D, then the break and a respotted White can be played anywhere from behind the line, this is stated on the existing match rules page “If the cue
ball is potted and returned to the table, it must be played from the D where a D is present, otherwise anywhere behind the balk line”
So, the question is; should every table have a D or should it just be a matter of choice for the venue, so long as both teams are aware?
