Stan Ward Handicaps

This year each player in a team will have their own handicap.
This will make it a little 'trickier' initialising the scoreboard before a frame, but hopefully, more rewarding for all players.
The handicaps are displayed on the LDBSA website under "Registered Players", and should be printed and made available to captains.
If anybody would like to query any of the handicaps; please contact secretary@ldbsa.co.uk before 21st December 2018.
If there are no challenges or queries by this date it will be assumed that everybody is happy with the handicaps as they stand.
Thank you - LDBSA Committee.

Snooker Scorecards

Captains, please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, the scorecards should not be posted to the address on the back of the card, but either handed to the Match Secretary in person or posted to the Treasurer. If possible enter the details on the website, and send an image of the card to the Match Secretary.
Rule 13 has been relaxed, so that no points will be deducted for scorecards arriving late.
Thank you.
Match Secretary.
