THE ALEX WILL BE PLAYING THEIR HOME GAMES AT THE DEN UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON. THEY WILL BE PLAYING ON ONE OF THE TABLES WITH GREEN CLOTH, HOWEVER, THAT WILL MEAN THAT ONE OF THE DIVISION 4 TEAMS WILL HAVE TO PLAY ON A DIFFERENT TABLE WITHOUT GREEN CLOTH.

NEW RULE - OPEN BREAK

WHEN A PLAYER BREAKS 4 BALLS MUST TOUCH A CUSHION AND/OR A COLOUR  MUST BE POTTED. FAILURE TO DO THIS IS A FOUL BREAK AND THE OPPONENT WILL BE AWARDED 2 SHOTS OR THE BALLS WILL BE RE-RACKED WITH THE OTHER PLAYER TO BREAK. IF THE WHITE BALL IS POTTED FROM THE BREAK IT IS ONLY 1 SHOT TO THE OPPONENT (NOT 2) AS LONG AS 4 BALLS HAVE TOUCHED THE CUSHION OR A COLOUR HAS BEEN POTTED. IF THE WHITE BALL LEAVES THE TABLE DURING THE BREAK IT IS 2 SHOTS. WHEN A RED BALL HAS BEEN POTTED THE PLAYER MAY STILL NOMINATE YELLOWS AND VICE-VERSA. IF THE REFEREE IS IN DOUBT HE MUST ASK THE PLAYER WHICH COLOUR HE INTENDS TO PLAY.

HARROGATE POOL LEAGUE RULES

THE HARROGATE LEAGUE PLAY TO THE 'OLD' EPA RULES A COPY OF THE RULES CAN BE FOUND ON THIS SITE http://www.epa.org.uk/rules.php .

TEXTING IN RESULTS

STARTING THURSDAY 14 OCTOBER 2010 I WOULD LIKE BOTH HOME AND AWAY TEAMS TO TEXT THE RESULT OF THE MATCH IN TO THE USUAL NUMBER ON THE RESULT CARD. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING WHEN SOME OF THE HOME TEAMS FAIL TO TEXT THE RESULT IN SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND ALLOW ME TO UPDATE THE LEAGUE TABLES ON FRIDAY MORNING.

TEAMS PLAYING UNREGISTERED PLAYERS WILL HAVE POINTS DEDUCTED AND PERSISTANT OFFENDING TEAMS WILL BE FINED £5 FOR EACH OFFENCE.
