SOUTHWICK SPORTS and SOCIAL CLUB BYELAWS - December 2014
Members booking tables should enter their names on the blackboard under the table number and inform any current players on that table that it has been booked. If the current players are members they are allowed to complete the frame in progress and play one additional full frame before finishing. If the current game being played is billiards then the light period remaining on the meter at that time can be played until the meter runs out plus a further 30 minutes (or nearest time depending upon coinage/time in meter) before vacating the table.
Members playing with a guest or associate members on table 3 are only entitled to play one frame of snooker or 30 minutes of billiards and must vacate the table at the conclusion of the frame or time if the table is booked for play by a member. They may, however, play on table 1 or 2 with the prior permission of a committee member or the steward.
There shall be a limit of four players per table.
A full member may sign in a guest to the club to play snooker/billiards in the day time closed hours but the key to the snooker room must be signed out and the guest’s name entered into the guest book.
Captains must ensure that the selected match tables are brushed and cleaned half an hour before any match is due to commence.
The club will not pay for, nor send off; individual snooker registrations after teams have been registered.
Children under the age of 14, unless registered junior snooker players, can only play on table 3.
2) Children Members are responsible for the supervision of their children at all times and may be disciplined in accordance with Rule 21 in the event of any breach of the club rules or byelaws. All children under the age of 14:
Notice to all members:
We have received numerous complaints from members and bar staff regarding the conduct of children in the club.
May we take this opportunity to remind you that you are responsible for the conduct of your children in the club.
Clearly, children running around the club and shrieking or climbing on the furniture is not acceptable. Nor should children be allowed to be without supervision in the garden.
We are also now trialling the banning of children in the Main Hall during live sports’ broadcasts unless they are seated quietly with their parents and watching the event.
