Mens Section New Rule and Changes
NEW RULE:- ‘ There should be a minimum of 21 days to play a cancelled game, if alleys are not available within this time then at least a date needs to set within the time frame or confirmed at the earliest date after the 21 days have passed. Fixture Secretary should be notified of the date the game is due to be played. If the game is cancelled again without good cause, then both teams will have to accept a point’s penalty at the discretion of the committee’.
Please get your games rearranged asap and inform the fixture secretary.
Change to Rule 14 Men’s Section from ‘Each team will play home and away in their divisions. Players should attend by 8:15 and commence no later than 8:30pm. The men play 4 legs with 1 point for each leg plus 3 points for the aggregate’.
To ’Each team will play home and away in their divisions. Players should attend by 8:15pm and commence no later than 8:35pm. Failure to meet this will result in a point being deducted from the league standing, unless the reason for the lateness can be explained and accepted by the opposing team. The men play 4 legs with 1 point for each leg plus 3 points for the aggregate’.
Please start your games on time to avoid a point’s penalty. This would also help anyone that needs to play off.
Not all members of your team have to be in attendance to start the game as they have until the end of the 2nd leg to arrive and play.
Suggestions :- If you know a member of your team may arrive just after the end of the 2nd leg which will be approximately 9.10pm, speak to your opposition at the start of the game. I would like to think most opposition captains would not have a problem with this.
The President suggested a quick telephone call to the opposing captain the night before may be a good way of agreeing on lateness of starting a game/Player arriving after 2nd leg
