Final Mini League Tables

Mini League Tables 2019



There are two mini leagues of six teams.
The winners and runners up of these leagues will compete on the grand final night.
Each team will play the other teams in their league home and away.
In the league stages each match is the best of nine frames of singles.
The matches consist of 3 sets of 3 frames.
Within each set three different players have to be used.
(Though a player can play in one, two or all three sets.)
A team can thus play a match with any number between 3 and 9 different players.
Two players can not play each other more than once in a match.
The subs from the June and July meetings will be used to create a mini-league prize pot.



Team sheets for the mini league can be downloaded from the Downloads page.

The following proposal was made by La Plata 'A':
If a player unsportingly unscrews or puts away their cue whilst their opponent
is at the table then it will be considered a concession of the frame.
The motion was carried.

The following proposal was made by the Forest 'A':
Home team players should not play friendly frames against each other mid-match.
The motion was carried.

The following proposal was made by the Forest 'A':
The balls must be racked by the referee of a frame not by anyone playing in that frame.
(Singles and Doubles Knockout matches excepted).
The motion was carried.

The following proposal was made by the Florist:
Retrieval of the cue ball by a player from the ball return is not a foul.
The motion was carried.

The following proposal was made by the Forest 'A':
Singles and Doubles Knockout matches must be completed before the next round date.
If a side postpones the match then they must give their opponent(s) 3 alternate dates.
If the match cannot be played on those dates then 3 dates must be offered in return, and so on.
Postponing and failing to offer alternate dates will lead to forfeiture of the match.
If the match is not played despite dates being proposed then the disputes committee
will resolve the issue, awarding the match to one side or fixing a date for the match.
The motion was carried.
