NEW SEASON 2017-2018


Forms are available on the website and will also be available at Tower and St Aubin.
Could you please make sure you enter your date of birth
It is important that all the entries are submitted by Sunday the 9th July 2017 in order to work out the schedule to accommodate the Mechanics as we hope they will still enter teams
As most will know the Mechanics are closed and are unlikely to re-open this year due to major repairs to be undertaken to the roof.
We will liaise with them to arrange a venue for them to play their home games until such time as their own club re-opens but will also need help from clubs for this to be achieved.
It was agreed at the AGM that subscription and entry fees should remain the same but that each reserve will pay £5 to be a provisional member of the JB&SA
The £5 will allow the player to play 5 reserve matches. On match 6 the player will have to become a full member and pay the additional £25.00.(reserve should also complete a subscription form)
We are proposing 2 individual leagues for snooker and 2 for billiards.
Choosing the players to represent the Island by Committee has been rejected. Players will be chosen from the individual league and the Island Snooker Championship.
The top 4 winners of league 2 will represent Jersey in the Upton against Guernsey..
The individual leagues will be limited to 8 players.
The leagues will be straight NOT handicapped
Although for the snooker leagues we show the handicap criteria to qualify for each league, this may change according to the number of entries and may even have 3 leagues subject to demand.
A council meeting will be held on Wednesday the 12th July to discuss the structure for the new season, so all entries must be submitted by Sunday the 9th July 2017

For those who are interested in playing the individual league.

Individual snooker league 
There will be at least two singles league depending on numbers.
They will be played on a Monday night.
Players may play before the date scheduled, but only have until the following Monday after the scheduled date to play.
The above arrangement will depend on the number of players from Tower.
I am certain we will have too many players and will not have enough tables to use on a Monday,
players should therefore be prepared to be able to play on another night.

To enter the 1st division league you must be playing off a handicap between -7 to -56
(this will change if more than or less than 8 enter.)
The entry fee of £20 will be matched by the JB&SA.
The total prize money should therefore be 8 x £20 = £160 + £160 from JB&SA = £320.
The top four players will represent the Island with the 5th player coming from the Island Snooker Championship final.
6 frames will be played

The 2nd division league will be for players on 0 to 42, (subject to the amount of entries)
The entry fee of £10 will be matched by the JB&SA
If we have too many entries we will have 3 leagues and place players in the league according to their handicap.
The top four players of division 2 will be selected to play in the Upton against Guernsey..
3 frames will be played.
In both leagues at the end of the fixtures there will be a play off between the last four players for part of the prize money. To enter the play off you must have played all the matches.
The winner of division 2 will be able to challenge the last player in the first division to decide who goes up or down or whether they stay the same for the following season

Individual billiard
To have two leagues we will need at least 12 players
If two leagues, players will be placed in the league according to their team league handicap
The entry fee for the 1st division will be £20 and if a second division it will be £10.
The JB&SA will match the entry fee for prize money
You will play for 90 minutes
In both leagues at the end of the fixtures there will be a play off between the last four players for part of the prize money. To enter the play off you must have played all the matches.
The winner of division 2 will be able to challenge the last player in the first division to decide who goes up or down or whether they stay the same for the following season
