I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who are entering into the spirit of the league and a special thanks from us and the majority of players to those paying subs.
We have stated several times the importance of these based on the voting and know that this is the last statement we will make on it.
For those cooperating, carry on please and thanks. Any prizes that are due will be paid to highest finishers in their league or furthest you go in the Cups, whilst this is not ideal we will make it work.
For those who are not we by now know you are not so likewise stop putting negative comments on WRPL, from now on these will be deleted, please read below the reasons for both.
I will just say a few points on this, firstly it is not Google and answers are not instant but will get answered unless the answers have been given previously or are listed elsewhere.
Secondly it was set up for primarily posting of result cards not for negative comments, it is quite depressing to see these comments pop up and other members are now leaving the site due to them, fed up with most points being repeated time and time.
Negativity breeds the same so i ask you consider this before you post.....
This seems to be an issue with some despite a democratic vote by all about them. Whilst i have stated several times we can't force you i politely ask anyone planning on not paying reconsiders as it will cause issues i'd rather avoid. Based on the extra income we added 3 new Cups with prizes for these coming from the funds raised such as the Divisional Cups, Cups i must add you are all entered into, a question raised now is why if you are not contributing toward them when these are in fact extra to what was played for last year. These Cups do bring in extra revenue to your pub whilst also giving you more nights out and more pool.
Whilst all can't win prizes as with any other season these funds are important toward growing the league with part of this set aside for an end of season night out for all combining prizegiving with a comedian or such like.... again a question will be raised why should non payers be entitled to attend??? It won't come to that, all will be welcome to attend as always it is a point that will come up though, i know that with certainty but this is our first season so i respectfully ask that you give it a chance.
Please keep checking us out as we will be updating this regularly.
Sponsors needed, contact me for further details please.
The Sports Lounge have very kindly agreed to give the league a huge donation of £500 so massive thank you to them!
The Sports Lounge Cup
This is a new cup that will be played solely at the Sports Lounge on a FRIDAY night. This is a free to enter competition and a vote will take place shortly to decide if this stays a 'closed' competition or we open it up to teams from outside the league who will be charged a fee to enter.
Champions of Champions
We feel this is outdated so we will now include all Cup Winners as well as Div and 2 league winners (excluding the Sports Lounge Cup Winners)
In the event any league winner also wins a cup then the Runner Up of that cup will be eligible.
To make results and tables easier to read we have purchased the RedSeal Software and will link to the site in due course.
We feel this is ideal in lots of ways and you who play in other leagues will be familiar with it already.
