A few venues within the SRPL have refused entry to players under 18 years of age due to their licensing restrictions. (eg. the Keys and Firehouse) Please bear this in mind should you have any young players and if in doubt check with the opposition before attending a match. (Contact details on the TEAMS page).

Too many rearrangements...
Posted: September 24th 2013, 18.30pm
Due to the large number of matches being requested to rearrange, and limited time in which to play them, the Presentation Night for this season will be postponed until the 1st FEBRUARY.
Any match not played by FRIDAY 13th DECEMBER 2013 will be result in a 4-0 win to the opponents of the team requesting the rearrangement.
Matches can be played on ANY day of the week if both captains are in agreement. There are currently 11 matches awaiting rearrangement.
Matches will be scheduled in as and when there is space in the fixtures, but if captains can arrange to catch up by playing on non-match days it would help. As always, captains details are here.

New Committee Member

We are pleased to announce that Steve Farrow has recently joined the SRPL committee to assist with the running of the league.
Steve brings many years of experience in running pool leagues having previously been General Secretary and then Vice Chairman of The Bedford Pool League [96 teams] and also running the Beds Independent Pool League [40 teams] on his own. He has also held positions at a County Level as a former Chairman of Bedfordshire and Secretary of Hampshire, and at a regional level as Rankings Secretary for Region 4 of the English Pool Association.
I'm sure you'll all agree that this extra assistance and experience will help us to improve the SRPL going forward.

You requested it, we've done it!
This season the Presentation Night will be held on a Saturday so everyone can make a proper night of it! We've got trophies, food, competitions and a raffle. Save the date!

It's been brought to my attention that there was an error within the "SRPL League Rules" document supplied at the outlay of the season to all venues and available to download from the website.
The error stated that the point system was 5 points for winning 5-2 and 4 points for 4-3. This was an oversight when trying to simplify the table showing the system. The correct score is (and always has been) 6 points for a win.
The web page showing the rules has always been correct and the downloadable version has now been updated.
The league tables have been correctly calculated all season; so there will be no change to league positions.
Please accept my apologies.
Regards, Peter - SRPL Chairman
SRPL General Meeting - Agenda
Posted: April 25th 2013, 12.30pm
Would you like your say on the SRPL? We're looking to have a General Meeting to gain YOUR view on anything and everything to do with the SRPL. Intially, we're looking for general numbers, and more importantly items to discuss.
As we've mentioned on Facebook, we don't want to organise this then a) have no one show up, as has happened in the past (albeit before the wonderful new means of communication that is Facebook) or b) have the meeting "hijacked" and turned into a free-for-all of people talking over each other etc.
In order to form an agenda, we invite you to post on Facebook (comment on the "Pinned" post at the top) or email us the issues that YOU would like discussed. From that, we can draw up a suitable agenda and try to allocate sufficient discussion time to each of your concerns/wishes. At that point we will take a poll of people that want to attend and then choose a venue based on the numbers involved and a roughly central location for everyone.
Obviously, there are a lot of team members that don't come on Facebook, and I would encourage those of you that do to involve them in any discussions within your respective teams so that they have a voice as well.
