Final Mini League Tables
There are two mini leagues of six teams.
The winners and runners up of these leagues will compete on the grand final night.
Each team will play the other teams in their league home and away.
In the league stages each match is the best of nine frames of singles.
The matches consist of 3 sets of 3 frames.
Within each set three different players have to be used.
(Though a player can play in one, two or all three sets.)
A team can thus play a match with any number between 3 and 9 different players.
Two players can not play each other more than once in a match.
The subs from the June and July meetings will be used to create a mini-league prize pot.
Team sheets for the mini league can be downloaded from the Downloads page.
The Ivy Sadler Team Knockout first round draw was made.
The draw can be viewed on the Ivy Sadler Knockout page.
