I think firstly it is fitting that we say a few words and remember those BDICPL members who we have lost during this dreadful Covid 19 Pandemic. I think I speak for all of the BDICPL and would like to send out its belated deepest and sincere condolences to all those friends and families how have been affected, at this very difficult time.

Covid 19 Issues
Please remember under the current conditions Covid 19 restrictions have been lifted nationally but there maybe local club restrictions enforced which as a member of the BDICPL you are expected to follow.
With regard to the customary "shaking hands" before and after each game and match the BDICPL strongly suggests that players use either a "fist bump" or "thumbs up" as an alternative to actually touching another player.
This coming season 2021-22 Blackball rules will again be played in the Premier Division. All teams in the Premier Division will play Blackball in Premier Divisional league matches, Premier Divisional cup matches and the Premier Divisional singles competition only.
All other BDICPL competitions and Divisions 1 and 2 will continue to play Old EPA rules.
All Premier teams who wish to play in other BDICPL competitions will play Old EPA rules.
The 3 teams promoted to the Premier Division each year will switch to play Blackball rules and the 3 teams relegated from the Premier each year will switch to play Old EPA in the 1st Division.
Keeping the BDICPL league split into 3 Divisions
At registration this year we lost 6 teams Aviators, Rebels, Bluehouse, Miss Cue, Night Out and Mavericks, which meant from 42 we dropped to 36 but we gained 2 new teams. The new teams were Woodland Warriors and Fryerns Bandits. We gained a new venue the Woodlands Club.The total registered teams is 38 teams. It was decided to keep the leagues as 3 divisions of 14 teams. This would mean the number of league matches a season would still be 26 but with 1 "Bye" team in the Prem and 1st Division and 2 "Bye" teams in the 2nd Division.
The league captains present at a meeting on 03/08/21 voted and the BDICPL sanctioned that, the BDICPL league is no longer a compulsary sandwich league. Sandwiches are now provided at each venue on a voluntary basis.
Tables and Sandwiches at Qball
All teams playing out of Qball this season will pay £20 per table per league match night. They will receive 1 match table from 6:30pm for 5 hours and also 1 individually packaged hot meal (Sausage & Chips) per player present for their match. BDICPL reminds team captains in other BDICPL cup competitions staged at Qball to book tables with Qball reception.
