SWDSL AGM – Proposals To Change League Rules

The following proposals for changes to the League Rules are to be voted upon at the AGM.  These are proposed by the Committee.

1. Amendment to Rule 4 – ‘The League Management Committee shall elect their own Chairman on an annual basis following the AGM each year.’

2. Amendment to Rule 4 – Add ‘Fixtures/Results Secretary’.

3. Amendment to Rule 12 – ‘The offending team shall pay the sum of £15 to a Three Player Team / £20 Four Player Team as a contribution towards their expenses if they fail to turn up to a match and the non offending team is already at the league venue, or cancel a match after 6.30pm on the evening of the match. Such expenses shall be paid within 28 days to the non offending Captain.’

4. Amendment to Rule 15 – Add ‘League Fees for the season together with any Tournament Entry Fees for the season shall remain payable in full.’

5. New Rule 4b – ‘Committee Members shall be required to attend a minimum of 50% of Committee Meetings. Unless otherwise agreed, non compliance may result in the Committee Member being asked to stand down from the Committee with immediate effect.’

6. New Rule 12a – ‘In the event of a league match or tournament round being played at an alternative venue due to the home table being unavailable, the original home player/team shall remain as such for the purposes of the order of play and payment of any table fees.’

7. Amendment to Rule 6 – Add ‘Players must register separately to play in both the Three Player Division and the Four Player Divisions. Failure to do so will result in a 1 point penalty being applied to the offending team for each player who plays for them if they are not registered to that team in that division. A player who plays in both divisons shall pay only one player registration fee.’

8. New Rule 12b – ‘For a match to be confirmed via text, email or other electronic communication as either being cancelled and/or rearranged for a new date, such communication must be acknowledged in writing by either the Captain or Vice Captain of the other team for it to be deemed as agreed.’
