Welcome to the Bridgend and District Pool League website.




>

The Bridgend and District pool league is affiliated to the Welsh Pool Association and plays UK Blackball Rules

The league has 30 teams this Winter season, which will run between the
end of September 2018 and July 2019. The league currently has 320 players, divided into 2 divisions.
The standard of pool within the league varies from teams that contain both current and former international players
and those who simply enjoy a game of pool on a Thursday night in good company.
The teams play in licensed premises throughout the Borough of Bridgend and neighbouring districts.


The website has tabs at the top which will open up league tables, and current competition entries.

There is an unofficial League Facebook page "Bridgend Pool League" where
anyone interested in joining a current team can find further information about the league.

League Chairman



ONLINE PLAYER REGISTRATIONS
PAYPAL is a new and secure way of paying for products online, so, The Bridgend and District Pool League have opened a paypal account for us to receive Player Registrations on the night.
As you are aware this is a system in progress, however it works well...
Paypal.com does not offer a free service for these online payments, so in order for you to pay online you will be charged an initial 50p for each registration. therefore online player registration payments will increase to £7.50.


Once the transaction is complete, please forward a screenshot of the receipt to the fixture secretary with the players FULL NAME and Team details.
Many Thanks
Committee..

NEWS LETTER:

Welcome to the new season.

Presentation night will be held in Pyle Rugby Club, after the Summer Final Match.

AGM ammendments 2017-18:-
The league's chairman put forward a letter to the delegates to make a change to the BDPL's Structure, this letter was to change the format from 3 divisions to 2, this change forces us to use 2 divisions of 15 and a bye in both divisions, this letter got a unanimous vote from the delegates and will be tried out for 1 season to see whether it will be advantageous to the league and help the league to move forward in time.

On a final note, I wish you all the very best of luck in the coming season and i hope it will be as exciting and competitive as the previous years.
The BDPL Committee.

Pool League Presentation
On the 22nd of September 2018, the BDPL held its presentation night at The Bridgend Athletic FC. A great effort from all the Committee Members for setting up the trophies and arranging the night also. Thank you to all that turned up on the night and we hope you enjoyed yourselves and your trophies.

However the effort made by the league players to attend this years Presentation night was exremely poor, this has lead the Committee to put an end to future Presentation nights, thus saving money for the league. more information can be obtained at the next meeting if required.

Many Thanks
The Committee.

Meeting of MAY 7th 2019
It was brought to the attention of the committee that a number of teams STILL haven't paid their £5 entry fee for the team cup tournament, the constitution states that for each month this fee has not been paid a fine of £5 is added to the entry fee. The committee has been very lenient on this matter considering that we are now at the final stage of the tournament, however next year the fine ruling will be put to use to keep good order of the league.

Robbie Thomas of the Castle Kings raised an issue with the Fixture Sec. Stating that he must have received the result sheet in time to update the league website as their points for that particular game had not been added, this game was some time ago, he also added that he put a post up on facebook, the Fixture sec. maintained his statement in saying that only in this meeting did he receive a COPY of the result sheet and that he is not a member of facebook. The committee came to a decision that adhered to the constitution and the result sheet was deemed late, it was decided that the only points to be awarded are the ones earned by the opposing team.

OTHER MATTERS
Later on in the meeting Jeff Badman announced that he will resign from his role as Fixture Secretary at the End of the Summer league.
