General League & Cup Rules
At the 2017 AGM the Management Committee were asked to review the
General League & Cup Rules that refer to postponed matches.
At the EGM/Delegates Meeting on 12th April 2018, with a small amendment made to the proposed Rule 8b, the following changes to Rule 6 and Rule 8 were approved. The rules become effective immediately.
Note : Changes shown in italic.
Rule 6. Matches not Played
If a match is not played both clubs must inform the League Secretary immediately.
Unless an acceptable reason is given (see Rule 8a) the offending club will receive
a 10 point penalty and allow the opposing club to claim maximum points and 30
shots. The claim by the opposing club must be made immediately by phone or
email to the League Secretary and a match result card, with their named players
included, sent to the League Secretary. Failure to claim the points and send a
match result card will result in no points being awarded. Should any club
withdraw from any league during the season, results of matches with that club
will be deleted.
Rule 8. Postponement or Abandonment :
a). Teams must adhere to the dates agreed as fixtures, no postponements or
abandonment being allowed, except on account of : i). Adverse weather
conditions, ii). Insufficient daylight, iii). Unfit green.
No postponement will be allowed because of any team shortage – Rule 6 is applied.
If a club are forced to rearrange a scheduled fixture every effort must be made to
play the match early, before the scheduled date. In the case of an emergency
postponement (ie whole team sickness, travel problems etc) the club can request
a change of fixture date with the League Secretary
b). The decision for postponement or abandonment from the above causes (8a – i, ii
& iii) will be at the discretion of the Home Team Captain, in conjunction with
the visiting Captain. A postponed or abandoned match must be rearranged
immediately and played within 21 days. The TH League Secretary must be
notified of any rearranged matches immediately, by both clubs.
c). Any match abandoned after 12 or more ends have been completed (on each rink)
will be deemed a completed match and points will be awarded as per Rule 4.
d). When a match is abandoned when less than 12 ends are completed on all rinks,
the match will be rearranged and restarted as stated in Rule 8b.
e). A player can not play in a rearranged match if he has taken part in the
corresponding Premier, Stanford, ’A’ team or ‘B’ team match, including the
f). All rearranged league games must be completed before the last fixture in that
league programme. Failure to do so will make the result of the game null & void.
The only exception will be if the last league fixture failed to take place because
of poor weather in which case an extension would be allowed and the result
