POOL LEAGUE

RULES & GUIDELINES

 

 

1.         All VNEA 8-ball Rules Apply.  See Handbook in Captain’s Packet.

 

2.         The home team captain is responsible for collecting league money for both teams.  Make sure the        envelope is filled out completely and signed by both team captains. 

 

3.         League play will begin at 7:30 pm.  A team has until 8:00 pm to make an appearance or the match may be considered a forfeit.  If a player is late and the next round has started, the late player will forfeit the previous game or games.  All decisions on forfeiting games must be decided by both team captains before the match is over.

 

4.         Please fill out your score and sanction sheets completely.  Make sure they are clear and easy to read. 

 

5.         Handicaps: On the first night of league play, play straight up, then figure your handicap.  Your handicap is calculated by dividing the total number of points a player wins by the total number of games played.  Fractional averages may be rounded off to the next full number as follows: 

            8.0-8.4 remains an 8, 8.5-8.9 increases the average to 9.  The highest spot balls are 15 points per round, 9 for the summer.  The minimum player handicap is 5.  If your team has a player missing on the first night of league play, then you must enter an 8 as his/her handicap only until a player fills that spot.  If a player fails to show up for league play then his/her handicap only must be entered in.

 

6.         Players pay league fees each week up until the last week of play (or as indicated on the schedule)

            and also pay own quarters for all matches.  League fees are $7.00 per player per night.  League

            fees should be paid in cash.  If league fees are paid with a bad check then there is a $20.00 fee plus

            the league fees that is due for the night.  The player is suspended until all check and league fees

            are paid in cash.  No Pay – No Play!

 

7.         Drop off Locations: All league envelopes must be turned in to one of the drop off locations listed         below the same night of league play.  Insert the league envelope into one of the dart machines on

league night or drop off at Just Darts the next day.  This is very important in order to get the league standings updated and mailed out in time for next weeks matches.
