SWDSL WhatsApp Group & Keeping In Touch With The Latest Website Posts, News, Results etc.

We do have quite a few league members already on our SWDSL WhatsApp Group, but for those that are not aware, amongst others matters we use this group;
1. for Captains / Vice Captains to report league results including the sending of a photo of the Match Result card after each match

3. to notify group members when the league tables have been updated
4. to notify group members when tournament drawsheets are added/updated to the website
5. to advise of other league news such as forthcoming events, tournaments, AGM etc.

Any registered league members can join the group so if you would like to be added to the SWDSL WhatsApp Group then please email swdsl@live.co.uk with your name and mobile number and we will email you back with a link to join the group.

The group is to be used for SWDSL snooker matters only.  Also please do not use offensive language or use it as a tool to antagonise other members otherwise you will be removed from it. Too many messages over a short time frame tends to cause members to exit the group so please keep any conversations to a minimum or take them off the group.

We also have a regular email which is sent out to all those on our email distribution list on a Sunday at midday.  The email is automatically generated from our website as and when new posts and information are added.  If you would like your email address to be included then please click here to sign up.  If you think that you have already signed up and should be receiving our regular emails but they don’t come through to your Inbox please check your Junk/Spam folder.  You may also need to add our email address, swdsl@live.co.uk to your Safe Senders or Contacts.  Any issues with this please contact Peter Saville.

We also have a SWDSL Facebook Group and are on Twitter @swdslAll information is shared between the various forms of social media to help everyone keep in touch with the latest news, events and results.  With all these various forms of social media it is frustrating for the Committee to still hear some league members say ‘I didn’t know about that tournament’ or ‘I didn’t know when the AGM was’…..sign up, follow, like, add and stay in touch with what is happening in your snooker league.

On the night of the match, the Home Team Captain is responsible for notifying the league of the match result.  We request that a clear and legible photo of the Match Card be posted to the SWDSL League Results/Info WhatsApp Group.  If a Captain doesn’t use WhatsApp then anyone involved in the match can post the result on the Captain’s behalf.  Any league member can join the group and if you are not currently a member please contact Trevor Parsons or request via email to swdsl@live.co.uk and we will add you to it.  We request that all conversations are kept to the posting of results and general league information etc. and that all language is kept appropriate otherwise you will be removed from the group.

If no-one present at the match uses WhatsApp then we request that the Match Card is scanned and emailed to swdsl@live.co.uk.

We no longer require Match Cards to be put in the post but request that all Clubs and Captains retain the Match Cards safely until the end of the season in case of any queries.

SWDSL 2017 AGM – Changes To League Rules

At the AGM in July 2017, the following Resolutions were voted upon and agreed by those league members who attended the meeting.  The League Rules document will be updated on the website to reflect these changes.  Please can all Captains make their players aware of these changes so there are no issues during the forthcoming league season, thanks.

Amendment to Rule 27 – Proposed by the Committee;
OMIT Paragraph Section ‘Normally semi-finals and finals will be played at neutral venues selected by the Tournament Secretary except when both players or pairs represent the same club when the match may be played at home.
ADD ‘Neutral venues will be selected by the Tournament Secretary for all tournament semi-finals and finals. Where league venues are selected in advance of semi-finals/finals being played and a player/pairing/team is a registered league member of that league venue, a neutral table will be selected by the Tournament Secretary within that league venue for the match to be played on. Dates selected for semi-finals and finals will not be changed under any circumstances and matches must be played on the dates scheduled’.
Resolution carried.

Add New Paragraph to Rule 27 – Proposed by the Committee;
ADD No runners up trophy / trophies will be awarded if a tournament final is forfeited and not played.
Resolution carried.

Add New Paragraph to Rule 6 – Proposed by the Committee;
ADD It is the responsibility of all Team Captains to ensure that their registered players maintain their membership of the league venue where they are registered to play. Failure to do so may result in the frames played by that player since their membership expired being deducted from their team’s results to date.
Resolution carried.

Amendment to Rule 8 – Proposed by the Committee;
OMIT ‘Three Player Teams – each player to play 1 frame against 2 separate members of the opposition (eg. 1 v 1, 2 v 2, 3 v 3; then 2 v 1, 1 v 3, 3 v 2).’
ADD ‘Three Player Teams – each player to play 2 frames back-to-back against 1 member of the opposition (eg 1 v 1, 2 v 2, 3 v 3).’
Resolution denied.

Amendment to the Handicap Calculation Table – Proposed by the Handicaps Sub-Committee;
Due to the Sub-Committee not having the end of season handicaps to hand and a finalised reviewed calculation table drafted  it was put to the vote that at a later meeting/emailed version should be sent out to team captains.
(EGM or or online vote to follow).

Amendment to Rule 7 – Proposed by Spike Braybrooke;
OMIT ‘Teams must advise the Fixtures/Results Secretary (when registering) of which week night they wish to play their home fixtures (Monday to Wednesday).
ADD ‘Teams must advise the Fixtures/Results Secretary (when registering) of which week night they wish to play their home fixtures (Monday or Tuesday only).
Resolution denied.
