You may recall that prior to the Summer 2020 season, we made some changes to the League's rules. Please find below a reminder of these rules. You can see more details on the related news items that we published at the time, available by clicking on the News heading above.
The main changes that affect the Winter 2020/21 season relate to the following areas:
- Amendment to the way in which the margin of victory in a frame affects players' handicaps, with the introduction of a single margin of 40 or more points (rule 32).
- Amendment to the monitoring of handicaps, particularly of newly registered or returning players (rules 35 and 36).
- Reintroduction of match bonus points, where a bonus point is awarded to a team for each table won by a margin of 40 or more points (rule 54).
Although we plan to use win percentage to rank teams this season, you must still record match bonus points as we may need to use these where teams finish with equal win percentages.
A reminder that any registered League player can send proposals for changes to the rules, or for any other issues relating to the League, to the League Secretary, in writing, for discussion by the Committee. The Committee will implement any proposals that it passes at an appropriate time.
You can view the rules using the Rules menu above. Should you want a full copy of the rules, you can find them on the Documents menu.
