Summer Mini League 2023



Congratulations to the Mini League Winners 2023:
The Fox and Hounds

and the Mini League Runners Up 2023:
The Forest 'B'



Mini League Final Results

Mini League Fixtures 2023



Mini League Final Tables

Mini League Tables 2023



The Loxley have withdrawn from the Mini League.
A revised structure and fixture list was agreed at the June meeting.
A coin toss dictated that La Plata joined League B and the Forest 'A' joined League C.



There are three mini leagues one with four teams and two with three teams.
The winners and the best runners up will then compete in the semi finals.
The best 2nd place team will be decided only on matches between the top 3 in each league.
Each team will play the other teams in their league home and away.
Each match in the league stages and the finals 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.




March Meeting

A complaint was made by the Railway 'B'.
They alleged that the Florist 'B' team behaved in a threatening manner.
The Florist 'B' team alleged that the Railway 'B' also behaved in a threatening manner.
The disputes committee convened to interview both parties and discuss further action.
The disputes committee decided that:
The Florist 'B' and Railway 'B' both receive a suspended 4 point deduction.
The deduction will come into effect on any further instances of threatening behaviour.
(Along with any further penalties that may be decreed in the event of a repeated occurance.)

The two parties agreed that there would be no issue in playing the reverse league fixture,
or any knockout matches between players of the two teams.
