SOUTH LONDON & KENT
POOL ALLIANCE

for "World Rules" across the counties

POOL SCHOOL

If you wish to get invovled please contact the League, it's free to enter at present.
New term starts 1st July 2022, enrolling now.

A new concept to encourage players to practice and improve with multiple players of all standards and abilities.

Anyone who plays in the League can join this practice group of players known as "Pool School".
A ceiling of 25 players may enter in a particular term. First come first served.
Anyone who wishes to join is added to the "Pool School" WhatsApp group. This group will be the focal point of all communication between players and the League itself.
Players of any standard are invited to join.
Pool School will run for 3 months at a time.
Any player that wants to practice at a specific date/time/venue should message via the WhatsApp group to advertise that they wish to play and are looking for someone to play.
All in Pool School can see that a player wishes to play. A second player can reply to the WhatsApp group if that someone wishes to play. The match should then be accepted by both parties.
The two players arrange the start date/time/venue and play a 2 set race to 5 frames match. The result will either be won, drawn or lost with the table costs split between the 2 players equally.
Within the 3 month period ("a term") the same 2 players can't play a Pool School match again. This encourages players to practice with players other than their regular practice partners, and will need to accept requests from players they haven't practiced with before in the same 3 month period.
Players can play as much or as little as they want, whenever they choose. No emphasis on players to play everyone in Pool School.
Results should be communicated via the WhatsApp group.
The WhatsApp group will be strictly monitored and shouldn't be used for remarks and jokes etc.
This page on the website will display all the details, including players involved and matches played.
The website will updated once a week usually on a Thursday morning, sometimes more often.
A league table will be displayed with the amount of matches played being the optimum factor, not results. As a tie breaker results will be second most with frames won the third most. So the emphasis is on playing and not necessarily winning.
After 3 months, the players who aren't practicing at all or only very little will be replaced by those on the waiting list to join.
No prizes awarded other than free enrolment into the next 3 months of Pool School term.
Once the 3 month term is over everything is reset and Pool School begins again.

If more than the first 25 players wish to enter then these will be placed on the reserve list should someone drop out, or will be next in line to enter in the following term.

Beware there are two Gary Mason's. One plays for the Academicals the other for the Bears.
Please ensure you differentiate between the two when arranging matches or submitting results.

Current term commences 1st April 2022. Culminates 30th June 2022.
