I am trying to start a home pool league. We will play once a month at a different members home. We don't know exactly how it works. Does anyone know how to resolve the BIG gap in ability? Golf uses handicaps...what do we do for pool? And how do we make sure that everyone gets to play and with as close to equal time as possible?
This forum is for the game of Bar Billiards nationally. Information and suggestions on Bar Billiards we can help you with.
Your question is regarding a home Pool league, we have a few good pool players in the forum who may be able to help, but you would do better to find a pool forum if your question is regarding Pool.
Inventor of the Triangles version of Bar Billiards. Highest England away aggregate 2013 and 2014, 10 - 0 last 10 England singles legs, seventh reserve 2015. Jersey Qtr final 2014, 2015, 2016 - Guernsey Plate Winner 2014, Main Final 2015, 2017. First person to have won both four pin opens.
Best suggestion I can come up with by way of a handicap, Ron, is to grade the players 'A' class and 'B' class. Then stipulate that after a foul, the 'B' players get 'two shots' but the 'A' players only get one shot.
We used to have a team play in the Corner House ;D and there is a team in the Sussex League that plays in The Old House at Home ;D
Yeah and the Kipling Challenge was staged at the Court House, and my Wednesday team play at the Mill House. ;)
It's a good point from the Colemanator, but what an indictment it would be on the brewery trade if it came to that as a last resort.
Having said that, 'special events' are already being held in private houses: Tunstall Towers Open (and on a less grander scale the Tommo Turrets) Neither premises are licensed, of course, so economics dictates that they cannot be held more than once a year.
If you tried it in Northants, they'd drink you out of house and home. :o :o ;D
