Notices of Motion

The extent of the miss rule to be applied during the U14 and U16 events is to be clarified and limited.
When a player competing in the U14 or U16 tournament classes is snookered, the miss rule is to be implemented in the following way:-
1. If the player does not escape from the snooker on the first attempt and it is deemed as a miss, then a miss shall be called. The opposing player may then, as the rules of snooker, elect to play from where the white has finished, ask for the player to play again from where the white has finished or ask for the balls to be replaced.
2. if the player does not escape from the snooker on the second attempt, the opposing player may either elect to play from where the white has finished or ask for the player to play again from where the white has finished. A miss shall not be called on the second attempt.
If, as the rules of snooker, a player is not snookered and able to hit full centre ball of the object ball but fails to do so, a miss may be called two times and after the second miss the player will be advised that failure to hit the object ball will result in the frame being awarded against them.
In relation to the above, the standard rules of the free ball and the requirement for there to be sufficient points available in play for the non-striker to win without snookers or a re-spot will still apply.
