BRISTOL POOL league






last update 10.2.19


Good news on the sponsorship front. Treasurer Mike John has been very busy to secure deals on virtually every major league KO competition, and he is in talks to complete the final deal. In fact, once complete, this will give us a higher return than any other deal since the Embassy days.
Together with the Pied Horse and Mechanics Arms, the Warwick Arms have agreed to sponsor the Wednesday League Cup and Plate, and the Sunday League and Divisional Cups. They will also sponsor and host the main Singles and Doubles semis and finals.

We have received a few complaints about score card management. It seems that some teams have got into a bad habit of just putting players first names into the print name section of the match card. When we then look at the signature we find it hard to distinguish the person’s name. Please print the player’s names in full. We will continue to randomly check score card for these deficiencies.

March should be the last month of £25 subs for teams. Please make every effort to keep up to date as failure could mean suspension from the league. Once your subs are all paid up you can then and only then send your winning score cards by email.

Some teams continue to send him scanned images of the score cards even though they still owe subs. Please be aware that these will be rejected, and points lost unless the cards are presented at the relevant league meeting. When you do submit E-score cards, you will receive confirmation of receipt, if you do not receive a reply then the result hasn’t been received by us.

The additional sign on deadline has now passed for the Sunday league. The Wednesday deadlines are, Wednesday Div 3, Tuesday February 12, Wednesday Divs 1, 2 & 4, Tuesday February 26.

Entry forms for the Ladies Open and Mixed Doubles comps should be returned at the March league meeting with all fees that are due. Please take note of the Finals Night dates before entering, as these will be very unlikely to change.

Various individual and pairs comps are now under way. Please ensure you make contact with your opponent, as it is the responsibility of BOTH PLAYERS/PAIRS to arrange the fixture. If you are having trouble contacting your opponent, contact the competition organiser immediately, as players who attend the league meeting to claim their unplayed match without contacting the organiser beforehand, will NOT be put through the next round.

Blackball County trials take place at All Stars on March 23 from 10am. Entry fee is £5.

Our current rule sheet should be displayed near the playing area of your team’s home venue. If there is a need to refer to them during a game, the current copy should be available for quick reference.

In an attempt to reduce our overheads, we have introduced an Email Information Service to provide members with monthly updates.
To help reduce costs, we would like members to subscribe to this Service. The email attachment will be identical to the book that team Captains/Secretaries have previously received by post, and will be available to all league members, not just Captains/Secretaries.
We fully understand that not everyone has access to the internet and email, so for those few teams the book will still be available by post.
Apart from the cost reduction, other advantages will be that the book will be available just a few days after the monthly league meeting, rather than the 11 days it now takes. Any mistakes that arise can be instantly corrected by sending a revised book. Any other information can be easily sent, eg, reminders of important dates such as league meetings and AGM's.
To add your name to the Service, simply send an email to bristolpoolleague(at)btinternet.com
Please include the word “Pool” in the subject line, and in the message box leave your name, team name(s), and whether you are Captain or Secretary of your team, or that you are just a playing member of your team(s). You will receive an email shortly after to confirm your inclusion in the Service.
