ATTENTION ALL TEAMS!!!!!
Division 4: The Royal have been removed from the league with immediate effect. All results have been stripped out from the start of the season and the latest tables are up to date, including all bonus points for league fee payments. The only points missing are average points for teams where the opposition have cancelled. These will be added and final tables will be confirmed ASAP after the conclusion of the season.
WHAT'S APP UPDATE
What's app remains unavailable. Please send all results by text, email or facebook page. Please send all sheets via picture message text or email until further notice. Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
There have been a few separate reports in recent times to the Committee about teams arriving at away venues and not respecting the rules of the venue/landlord. Can we please remind all teams that when you go to play away, the rules of the venue are there to be adhered to i.e. if there are signs re No Swearing, please try to calm your language and respect other customers, likewise if there are any signs regarding the use of illegal substances, please do not do it on their premises (ideally don't do it anywhere regardless of if there are signs or not!!).
All matches are to be played in a sporting manner in accordance with Rule 33 of the BDPL rules and this covers all aspects of the night from the way you treat your opposing players, other customers, the bar staff, landlord and venue as a whole.
Any incidents which are reported to the Committee will be investigated and any evidence of wrongdoing will result in action being taken by the Committee including expulsion from the league.
NEW SEASON - NEW CONTACTS!
There are a few amendments to the contacts within the Committee for the new season. After having a couple of busy years I have decided to take a step back within the work I do on the Committee so I am handing over the BDPL mobile phone and the work of results and tables to the newest member of the Committee Adam Wilson. If you call or email the BDPL number/address Adam will now be your main contact.
