ADVISORY RE: Disputes and Rules Clarifications There have been a few disputes during the first few games of this new season. Can I please remind everyone that disputes  should ideally be resolved ‘on the night’ between the Captains (Amicably!) if something is brought up after the fact and sent to  me, all I am authorised to do (as far as I know) is provide contact between the Captains to resolve and agree the dispute, I am  not sole Judge and Jury, and it is not my place to make arbritary desicions.  It is my understanding that IF a mutual agreement cannot be reached, then the desicsion can be held over to the next general  meeting and voted on for a majority decision at that point in time? If that is incorrect, then please do let me know and I will  advise and update accordingly.  In regards to rules queries, I have written as many as I can think of, and have asked for any corrections or omissions to be  brought to my attention, I will continue to add them as they are brought to my attention, but again, remember, it is a friendly  league and you should check with your opponent on the night if there is doubt and agree the way forward, if subsequently you  wish a rule to be written so as to avoid any future confusion, just let me know and I will be happy to do so.  There has been a reported incident of verbal abuse regarding a dispute, PLEASE lets not let that happen, if there is a  disagreement about something, discuss it sensibly, if it gets heated walk away and get together again later to discuss it, but this  is a FRIENDLY league and we must all behave as such.  Most common disputes Naming The Black Pocket YOU MUST NAME THE POCKET AND IT MUST BE HEARD BY YOUR OPPONENTS Calling a Free Ball YOU MUST CALL A FREE BALL AND IT MUST BE HEARD BY YOUR OPPONENTS This is your league and your website, if there is anything you would like to see added, changed (or removed!) then please drop me a note to  If you have any questions or queries, always best to email me at
