this year we are trying something a little different!
For 2019, the league will play an ‘Alternate Rules’ or ‘Triangle’ format where there is no need for handicaps. The full triangle rules a noted below but in principle the game commences with 6 white balls placed in a triangle with the lead ball marked by a spot which shall be placed 14cm directly behind the 100 hole. All shots shall be played from the spot.
Match nights will consist of four single legs and points will be awarded for leg wins with a bonus for a match win.
The league will commence on Monday 24th June with teams split into two leagues. Each team will play the others in their league home and away. The winners of each group will play the Runners Up of the other a semi-final fixture at a neutral venue on the 9th September.

Alternate (Triangle) Rules:
When “Triangles” version used:
1. The break position for this variation is to play a ball from the centre of the ‘D’ to hit a triangle of six white balls.
2. The triangle of balls is to be placed on the centre line between the 100 hole and the 10 hole, lead ball nearest the 100 hole, with its centre 14cm from the centre of the 100 hole.
3. If a player pots all available balls on the table, a new triangle shall be formed and play shall commence as at the beginning of the game. The break score compiled to that point shall be banked and recorded on the scoreboard. The scorer shall then start counting from zero.
4. Any foul committed shall only apply to the current break.
5. Should insufficient balls be available to fill the triangle after the bar has dropped, the triangle will be built row by row from the front and right hand side.
6. All shots to be played ‘off-the-spot’ from the centre of the ‘D’.
7. The black skittle will only count as a white for this competition, except for the ‘last ball shot’.
8. All legs shall be played as ‘chase the break’ with the home side having first break in legs 1 and 4. The away team shall have the first break in legs 2 and 3.
