Dear all,

A couple of changes to inform you of in the singles leagues.
Sean Coxon has withdrawn from Premier A and Malc Belshaw has been moved from Premier B to Premier A.

All of the fixtures have been corrected or removed in the dashboard.
This should not have any effect on the results already in.
Please remember to get your matches played on time.

You will find a new link in the menu box (top left of the page).  Clicking on the link will take you to our new "Comments, Handicaps, Disciplinary Matters" form.  All members can now submit pretty much whatever they like using the form and only the committee will be able to read what you submit.  We will look into what you submit and get back to you promptly.

If you have issues regarding the handicap of any player, or your own for that matter, then please let us know using this form.

If you think any member is being unsporting, abusive (in person or on social media) or is not meeting their player obligations (link on the left for details) then let us know using the link.

Finally, if you have any ideas for the committee regarding rules, formats or anything else then please submit a form and we will consider your ideas.  It is your NBSA.

New contact and handicap lists have been added in the menu on the left of the page.

Captains in particular, please check the list and let me know if any of your players are not on the handicap list.  Officially any player who does not have an NBSA handicap must play off scratch. To get a handicap you just need to speak to a member of the committee and we can give you a provisional one at short notice (which may be scratch of course).  If you play with an incorrect handicap then you automatically lose the frames in question whether it is a singles or team match.

I have added a new form on the left of the page in the menu box for members to submit any suggestions (about handicaps etc.).   Only the committee will be able to read submissions.  This is the place to raise concerns rather than at the snooker table folks.  Don't forget it is a sport not a war. :)

Dear players,

We have decided to keep the Monday night league as one, it will not be split.
Also, to make it even more interesting, the top 4 teams will go into the play offs at the end of the season.

The miss rule will be used in the Monday league as well.

Start time will be 7.30 as usual and the missing fixtures will be add to the Dashboard ASAP.
Good luck, I hope you enjoy the new season.

Dear Players, the NBSA 2017/2018 Winter season is just around the corner.

The team leagues kick off next week and we are already taking entries for the season long competitions until the end of October.

During the recent committee meeting a number of changes have been made to the team formats, Monday nights specifcally now being played with handicaps.
Also, the NBSA constitution and obligations have been updated and re-published.

These have had some amendments to promote fairness and sportsmanship when participating in all of the NBSA matches and one day tournaments.

A final note on singles league matches, please ensure that you play all of your matches, the last thing we want is for people to drop out, it affects the leagues in a negative way. The NBSA will enforce a season long ban for anyone that drops out without special circumstances.

All of the singles league matches are on the dashboard and can be arranged.

Also, we will shortly be announcing the presentation evening for all of last season, including the summer leagues.
Again, cash prizes will be paid on the night.

Good luck for the new season.

1. The Singles League fixtures are now available on the NBSA Dashboard.  Please remember that you need to login to the Dashboard using your NBSA username and password to see the fixtures and/or enter results.

2. Contact information to arrange your matches can be found by clicking the player contact info link in the menu on the left of the page.

3.  Results must be submitted by 11.59pm on the match deadline date on the NBSA DASHBOARD (link on the left of the page) or by informing Rob Garratt, Wayne Martin or Dan Norton (contact info).

4. You must contact your opponent to arrange your matches AT LEAST two weeks before the deadline for the match result.  If you can't produce evidence that you have done so then you can't claim the match even if your opponent is not available.  The best way to have evidence is to contact your opponent by sms text message so you can produce the sent message if required.  In the modern age their are very few legitimate reasons for not contacting your opponent.

5. If you can not contact your opponent by TWO WEEKS before the match deadline then you must inform Rob Garratt, Wayne Martin or Dan Norton AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE the match deadline (contact info).

6. If you change your telephone number you must contact Dan Norton with your new contact details (contact info).

7. If you have any problems arranging or playing your matches then you must contact Rob Garratt (or Wayne Martin/Dan Norton if Rob is not available).  We will grant a short extension to the match deadline in exceptional circumstances.

8. Failure to honour your fixtures will result in a one year ban from NBSA competitions except in exceptional circumstances (e.g. bereavement or serious illness). To put it bluntly, don't be incredibly unsporting and selfish by dropping out once you lose a few games.  EVERY match counts in a league and it is NOT just about yourself.

9.  Please submit any general queries about handicaps or player discipline using the "COMMENTS, HANDICAPS, DISCIPLINARY MATTERS" link in the menu on the left of the page.

Piotr Machon Wins The Captains Cup

Pete Machon defeated Tony Morgan 3-2 in a close final to lift the trophy.  Well done to Pete, as well as the trophy you also win your team free entry to the team league.

Thanks to Lynne and the team for use of the venue, the food and most of all for making it so easy for me to run competitions.  You are all top quality. :)

Pete played well all day, narrowly beating team mate Dan Norton (he plays for my team as well as "The Bears") and also Clint Broome in the group stages before taking a tight semi-final over Dan Moll.  A group stage defeat to Gaz Birks was the only blemish in a solid, consistent display.  To win so many close matches over a long day shows great mental stamina.

Tony Morgan also played strongly all day with several breaks over 50.  The two Dans (Moll and Norton) did OK too making it an all Towers v Academy/Spot On semi-final with Molly playing really well to beat Tony in the group matches. 

Nick Bentley was unlucky not to qualify from Group 1 in a three way tie for first place and only went out on frame difference.  In the other group Pete and Dan Norton tied for first place (including on frame difference) so decided the group on a coin toss - which Pete won.

A good match which had 4-4 written all over from the start.

Few close frames which could of either way, non more so than the 8th frame which saw Ash 21 up with 25 on. Rob though pulled off a cracking 25 clearance to level the score at 4-4, a long green to get things started and a massive pressure pot on the pink into the middle pocket with the white ball just off the baulk cushion.

Both captains made there pick for the 9th frame and it was down to Adam and Manfred to win it for there teams. Adam proved to be the stronger player potting some good balls and romped away for the win to give the Spot On Reds the TTL KO cup.

Well done to both teams for putting on a good final.

Also a massive thanks to Oakleigh lodge for the use of the tables.
