Mini League Tables 2018



There were four mini leagues, the winners of which competed on the grand final night.
Each team played the other teams in their league home and away.
In the league stages each match was the best of nine frames of singles.
The matches consisted of 3 sets of 3 frames.
Within each set three different players had to be used.
(Though a player could play in one, two or all three sets.)
A team could thus play a match with any number between 3 and 9 different players.
Two players could not play each other more than once in a match.
The subs from the July and August meetings will be used to create a mini-league prize pot.
The two losing semi finalists will receive £20.
The runners up will receive £40.
The winners will receive £60.
The Staffordshire 'A' were deducted two points for not attending the July Meeting.
The Staffordshire 'B' were deducted two points for not attending the July Meeting.
The Jubilee were deducted two points for not attending the August Meeting.

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.

Rule Clarification:
If a player nominates their colour at the proper time then the colours are designated
