Attention all players
Please be aware of by-law 13.1 regarding walkovers.
(1) Where a walkover is conceded the responsible team shall pay a match fee for each of those nominal positions affected by the walkover.
Teams not adhering to this by-law may be liable to loss of match points at the GSBA Board’s discretion.
Effective immediately the time per match by-law (5.4) has changed.
All snooker frames will now be completed in the following manner. When there is more than 20 minutes of the 1 hour & 45 minutes remaining, a new frame will commence and be completed entirely. When there is 20 minutes or less of the 1 hour & 45 minutes remaining, a new frame comprising 6 reds only shall begin and be completed entirely. Any handicaps will be reduced by 50% for the 6 red frame.
All teams please note:
GSBA bylaw 12.1: In all home and away match the host club shall provide a competent referee who may optionally be assisted by a marker.
GSBA bylaw 5.4: Matches to be timed to a maximum time of 1hour & 45mins.
Once the time expires, the match/frame is deemed completed and which ever player is leading that frame will win the frame. Should the frame scores be level when the time expires, it will then be a re-spotted black ball game. AND any remaining frames have not commenced – again – it will be a re-spotted black ball game.
