New 2013 Season starts on Monday, January 28
Following the general meeting at Phimai Geordie and the trophy presentation function at Shoot Pool, the new 2013 season has finally kicked off on Monday, January 28.
With 12 entries for the season, we will have only one division with 12 teams. In addition to the regular league matches (22 match weeks) we will also play a Knockout Cup. As in the previous season, the first-round losers will enter a separate Consolation Cup (losers’ bracket).
No major changes have been made to the Procedural and the Playing Rules; however, Rule 7 d) of the Playing Rules ("A player who clearly fails to make any attempt to play a ball of their own group will lose the game.") will no longer be in force, i.e. deliberate fouls, though still deemed illegal shots, will not result in a player losing his game.

The Pattaya 8-Ball Pool League (Monday 8-Ball League)
The Pattaya 8-ball pool league, a friendly amateur pool league for venues all over Pattaya, Naklua and Jomtien, kicked off in the year 2000 and has now (January 2013) entered its 28th season, making it the longest-running pool league among half a dozen others in Pattaya.
The League currently consists of one division with 12 teams. Matches take place weekly on Monday; the official match start time is 8.30pm.
The match format is 15 straight singles games of 8-ball pool - played in three sets of five games. Participating teams must have a minimum of five and may have a maximum of 15 players. Three players in each set should be expats or visiting foreigners.
The basic requirement for joining the League is an "acceptable" venue with a standard 7, 8 or 9-ft pool or snooker table with a reasonable, well-maintained surface, and an adequate playing space around the table.
League matches will be played according to the (old) English Pool Association (EPA) rules - with minor amendments for local preferences.
Venues from all over Pattaya are invited to join the league in future seasons or to replace a team that withdraws from the league in mid-season.
For more details, please contact us, we'll pass your enquiry on to the administrator asap.
