Notices of Motion

The residency criteria for some international competitions has reduced to one year. Our current criteria is 3 years before they can even become members, which not only conflicts with international rules but prevents players simply competing in competitive snooker in Wales if they are stationed here for work unless their stay exceeds 3 years, even though were they resident in other countries they would be eligible there. This means that players that other countries and the EBSA consider to have valid residency terms are excluded from our domestic competitions.
We proposed to align Welsh residency criteria with that of the EBSA. Doing it this way will ensure we follow their criteria in future should they revert to longer residency.
For clarity this currently means that players would not be allowed to play in Welsh competitions until they had resided in Wales for one year. With international qualification being dependant upon a previous year's ranking list or a number of events up to a point in a season, players would have been resident in Wales for almost 2 years before playing any international snooker, should they achieve qualification through the relative ranking series. Note that all other appropriate heritage based criteria will not be affected.
