Good luck everyone this year and remember to play in a sporting manner at all times.

All Week 8 Matches
All the BDICPL Winter Pool League 2022-2023 WEEK 8 matches due to be played on the 29/11/22 will now be played the last week of the actual league season on the 28/03/23 before the finals of the Charity and Combination Cups start.
There will be NO BDICPL matches played on the 29/11/22 due to the televised World Cup game between England v Wales shown at the various BDICPL venues.
Week 9 will continue normally unless of course England progress (hopefully) and if they conflict with another Tuesday World Cup pool night. Watch this space !
NEW RULES FOR SCORE CARDS
Please from now on, everyone PRINT PLAYERS NAMES beside the REG ID numbers (NO NEED TO SIGN ANYMORE) and just indicate 8BALL's simply with a 1 or 2 in 8B column on the score card. Captains Signature authorises 8balls.
Both captains need to send a photo each week in case there is a dispute.
CAPTAINS: Reminder - Please make sure all refs know the rules and are not distracted (I.E. By Phones,TV or Food) OR their decisions are led by other players.
It is up to the players to read and learn the rules which are available from this website
With regard to the customary "shaking hands" before and after each game and match, as Covid is still around, the BDICPL strongly suggests that players use either a "fist bump" or "thumbs up" as an alternative to actually touching another player.
Any matches cancelled due to players suffering from Covid this year will not be rearranged or replayed as there are no spare Tuesdays in the calandar. Unfortunately, Covid is now an every day issue and we as members of the BDICPL just have to be aware of, and take personal precautions, to live with.
Billericay Cons & Crooked Cons are now back playing out of Billericay Conservative Club.
The Woodlands Assassins play out of the Woodlands Club.
The Barnhall Lions play out of the Barnhall Club.
Please remember to play all matches in a sporting manner.
Good luck to everyone this year.
A recognised 8Ball in this BDICPL league is to consecutively pot all selected 7 object balls and the black legally and in one visit to the table.
A foul stroke grants an opponent an extra visit.
Old EPA - An 8Ball can only be claimed at break off or first visit of opponent if all 15 object balls are still all on the table. If you have 2 visits from a foul break or an "in-off" playing Old EPA, 1 visit must still remain after the black is potted in order to claim an 8ball clearance.
Blackball - An 8Ball can only be claimed on "break-off" (Dish) or first visit of opponent but only after a DRY BREAK and only if ALL 15 OBJECT BALLS are still on the table and NO FOUL HAS BEEN AWARDED.
The 8ball is acheived through successfully negotiating the clearance of the table with all 15 object balls on the table and not just from whats left after someone else broke!
NEW RULES FOR SCORE CARDS.

BDICPL notice about Table 9 and 5 at Qball on match nights.
Captains please remind ALL your players, even the SENIORS, this etiquette applies to everyone !!
So a reminder to EVERY player, 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.
Do NOTwalk through the players eye line when they are taking a shot or stand at the end of table 5 chatting to your mates sitting at the table in the viewing area !!
