So Far I have had replies from the following Teams.

I need confirmation from
I know that Dick Cable has been away, I know that The Bull & Windmill CC are short of players. If anybody is aware of anyone who wants to play in Horsham League can they please make contact with either Derek or Steve.
I need to have this finalised in order to arrange the Fixtures List.
Nothing came from the Royal Oak, then ? I will be calling in the New Moon on the way to M-S AGM on Wednesday. Might also give Simon Bailey at the Blue Ship a ring - he expressed an interest 12 months ago.
This is a heads-up that the new season of the HDBBL is due to start on Tuesday 19th September ( 15-16 days away ), and so ask all Captains and players to ready themselves for the first matches accordingly. The full details will be issued as soon as possible after the Committee Meeting to be held this Tuesday, the 5th, when the League status, composition and fixtures are finalised.... with preliminary proposals well advanced already. I hope this warning is helpful and look forward to seeing most of you during the coming 2017-18 season of Bar Billiards.
The new season will start on the 19th Sept with 2 weeks of Charity Cup matches followed by the League Fixtures.
We have lost The Bull team which is disappointing to lose the League Champions, this leaves us with 8 teams and following a committee meeting we have decided to keep with 2 divisions of 4 teams this keeps the format going with documented winners and runners up in both divisions in addition to promoting the singles & Lower Division Singles which always attracts a good turn-out.
I have attached the new Fixtures, score sheet and Sussex Comps entry form.
I look forward to another good season and look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks. - Ian Giffen, League Secretary.

I am sending out the Draws for Charity Cup (over the three nights 19/9, 26/9 and 24/10) and for Team Cup which will be over three nights next year, the "round robin" guaranteeing each team a minimum of three games. A scorecard for Charity Cup games is included, one for Team Cup will be sent out with a reminder early next year.
Charity Cup guidelines are included with the Draw: Although participation is not compulsory, it is hoped that all Teams will give it a go in accordance with the spirit of bar billiards. Each team has been drawn once at home and once away with the third heat to be played on a neutral table. For the Team Cup next year, each venue has an equal number of matches.
All the very best to everyone for an enjoyable and successful season ! - Clive Thompson, Competitions Secretary.
