BDICPL Combination Cup
The new Combination Cup competition 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.

If the cue ball is touching 2 object balls and you are unable to play a legal shot, the frame is a re-rack. You can not play into a touching ball as it would be a foul.
The BDICPL is giving notice to all teams that it IS going to enforce the constitutional rule, beginning season 2018/2019, which states,
that no more than 3 County "A" players or players of a higher standard, can be registered to play for any one BDICPL team. This is so that no BDICPL team has an unfair advantage.
