BDICPL Combination Cup
The new Combination Cup competition starts on the 15/01/19 and has replaced the Three's Competition. It includes all the losing teams that were eliminated from the Charity Cup in the first two rounds.
After the byes it will be a straight knockout played on Charity Cup night.

The format is a 6 person team who play the best of 9 frames in total. The match comprises of: 6 x one frame singles matches and 3 x one frame scotch doubles matches. There are NO substitutions.

Captains will draw the first 6 singles alternately as usual, then all ID cards will be turned over and used again to draw the pairings for the doubles. Break will be decided by flipping a coin for break and losing team refs. Break and ref's are then alternated.

Divisional handicaps will apply as usual to decide any frame starts.
Team handicaps - Prem: 0, Div1: +1, Div2: +2, Div3: +3

Please remember to play all matches in a sporting manner.
Good luck everyone.

New BDICPL Comps & Attendance Rules
BDICPL Officials who normally officiate at Qball are :

Bill Woolward (Secretary)
Jim Atkinson
Mark Redgewell

We are experimenting with a new format this season.

No more Wednesday Night Competitions !!

Each Competition will be played, on one night only, down to the Final across all 10 x 8Ball tables at Qball.
Each one will all be played on 7 separate Tuesday nights during this coming season at Qball. (See fixtures for dates).

New format: You turn up between 7:15pm and 7:45pm to register in the appropriate comp on the allocated day.
You don't turn up - you don't waste anyone's time. Bring your ID card or photo of it.
(Please do not all turn up at 7:40pm or you won't be registered in time).

Book slammed shut at 7:45pm and the draw will be done at 7:50pm sharp.

Play starts straight after the draw. We then play preliminaries first if necessary, then we play all the Comp using all 10 x 8ball pool tables to the Final.

All the money competitions this year are still 1st prize of £100 to all the winners and £50 to the runner up.

Money competitions are:
Prem 1st 2nd & 3rd Div Singles
Doubles Cup
Captain & Secretary Cup
Veterans Cup

Any teams who would like the BDICPL to try and arrange a friendly for them on Comp nights will need to contact the BDICPL at least 7 days before.
Just text, stating name of your team and "please arrange friendly on (date)". We will try our best to arrange one for you.

Good luck everyone and remember to play in a sporting manner.

Expected Etiquette of BDICPL players
BDICPL are still having complaints from players playing on Table 9 and 10 at Qball.

So a reminder to all new players, if a player is addressing the pool table and you are approaching the table from either end,
the etiquette is to stop and patiently wait until they have finished their shot then quickly proceed before the next shot is addressed.
Not just BARGE through the game and disturb their shot and whole game as some do at Qball on Table 9 and 10 on Tuesday nights !!

One BDICPL player even did a complete lap of the table while the player was addressing the table !!

Captains please remind all your players this etiquette applies to everyone.
