††††††††††Bob Gilliard Shootout (max 32 players)

†††††We attempted to change the Stan Ward & Dave Row Cup Finals to the Sunday of Finals Week, however, a couple of captains felt they may not be able to field a side, so we are remaining with the Final over 2 legs (home and away). This will be something that we will look into for next season though.

†††††On the Saturday 2nd July, we are looking to set up a Shootout Tournament throughout the day, like what you see on TV, in memory of Bob Gillard. This would be a maximum of 32 players on a first come first serve basis. More to follow on this in due course.

LDBSA Rule 13 - Match Start Time

Snooker Captains - and players.
The following is an extract from the LDBSA Rule 13;
"All matches MUST commence at 7.45pm with continuous play."
Rule 13 also states;
"It is the responsibility of the captain to inform his opposing captain if any of his players are going to be late. Any player who keeps his opponent waiting more than 15 minutes will render himself liable to forfeit his game if claimed by his opponentís captain. This includes a player having to wait more than 15 minutes when a match table is free."

Please don't wait until its your turn to play; to buy a drink, have a smoke, go to the toilet, or phone your mother to say you are about to play your frame of snooker.
