RIP Tommy Roberts

One of our long standing players has sadly passed away. Former Beehive, Derby Hotel and Cross Keys player Tommy Roberts. Tommy was normally the first on the card for his team, and a well respected member of the league. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time, RIP Tommy.

Thank You

Thank you everyone for another successful season in the RDPL. With over 720 registered players we continue to stay a very strong league. Another great Finals Week was enjoyed by all, flanked either side by the St Mary's Masters and the Charlie Crompton Memorial Tri-Team, we ended the season in style. Thanks again, and see you at the Presentation Evening.

Team Knock Out - 30th September 

League begins 7th October

Rule/Format Changes

There have been several changes made at the AGM this year

  • The break rule, and how colours/denomination groups are decided has changed. We are taking away the nomination aspect of it. (see below)
  • Pence Per Point has been removed in favour of Prize Money (similar to BL)

The New Break Rule

(no nomination)

  1. Beginning the game (The Break). The opening player must play at the triangle of object balls using the cue ball from any position behind (not on) the baulk line. The opening player must pocket a ball or drive at least two balls to hit a cushion. Failing to do so can result in the opponent accepting the balls as they lie, or demanding the balls to be re-racked and the break shot retaken.

  2. The Break

    * the term “open” means no colour or denomination group have been decided

    • If no balls are potted, the opening players turn at the table ends and the opponent plays from where the cue ball lies, the table is “open”.
    • Potting balls legally from the break (except the black), means the player continues and the table is “open
    • If a foul is committed, the incoming player has “two shots” with the 1st shot being a “free table” with ball in hand, if required (see rule 8 in rule book), and does not count in assigning colour group. Once the 1st shot has been played the table is “open”.
      • Failure to pot with the 2nd shot means the table is “open” to the incoming player.
      • If a foul is committed on the 1st or 2nd shot, the incoming player should revert to the earlier point “If a foul is committed” above
    • Deciding colour group when the table is “open”. The players colour group is decided when the player pots a ball or balls from only one colour group on a normal legal shot. Potting a combination of colours legally while the table is “open” means the player continues and the table remains “open”.
    • If the black ball is potted from the break the balls will be re-racked and the game re-started with the offending player paying for the game
