Re: reopening of pubs and clubs and restart of the pool season

As much as the committee would like to get the season kick-started again, there are a few things we think we need to point out and this is before even thinking about the guidelines (ie hygiene, distancing, cleaning of balls, table, cues, etc, etc).

1. We cannot force players and teams to restart the season whilst the virus is still active.

2. We don't know the individual well being of the people who play in our league and who might still be at risk of the virus.

3. The only way we can restart the season is by having an all in favour vote to proceed from all players and captains, as we cannot restart and punish the players / teams which do not want to and in turn, the pubs miss out on revenue, where other pubs gain.

4. I as chairman and the committee, have got to look at the bigger picture of the way to go forward and hopefully in the upcoming weeks, we will be given guidance/assistance by the English Pool Association of how we do this but, until then, I think the season has got to be put on the "back burner" for a fair few weeks or even months, depending on what guidelines we are given by the EPA.
