14.1 League - Make-up Match Rules ? - 01-10-2018, 12:01 PM

Hey Guys,

I've had an ongoing delima on how to handle Make-Up Matches for my 14.1 League Seasons.

Currently i ask all players to get their matches played within a week of their cancelation or to play matches in advance if that works better, but as the season progresses the matches just keep stacking up. In the end i do keep track of who the person was that cancelled so if need be i will dish out the forfeit, but that can lead to foul play come the end with a player not wanting to spoil his/her own record or to lesson the chances of the opponent.

one of my league players suggested that the person that cancelled would get a 10 % or point adjustment in their handicap for that match, that also could lead to foul play.


What do you all think of possible rules i could put into play to solve this ongoing problem ?

Thanks In Advance
-Steve

Get all entry monies up front like we do in our league. That way if your guys lag behind or even quit midseason they can't screw up the prize fund. It is a problems for some players but once you explain why they are easier to accept it.

We had the same problems in our league too. It is the only solution we have come up with. If players are serious about the game and your league they will have no problems with this approach. If a player balks at your reasoning you probably don't want them in the league. This has been my view. It is never easy pleasing all of the people all of the time.

We had a 12 player straight pool league last year. Halfway through the 12 weeks, we had a player that had to drop out due to injury. The only fair way to handle it in my opinion was to eliminate him from the results altogether, and any previous matches that player had played against other league players was deleted from the results as if it was never played.

We allowed our players to schedule to play their matches in advance if they wanted to, or could schedule their make-up matches after the week they were scheduled to play, but I told them if they were not caught up with all their matches by the end of the final week, they would be removed from the final results, and would not be allowed to participate in the next 14.1 league we set up.

I wish we could get enough players for that to be a rel concern, We generally only have 8-12 players. We play each session as a round robin format where every player plays each other once. We do not have playoffs, but rather split our group into A an B "divisions" and pay off winner of each (A is generally handicap above 100 balls; B below that. We are pretty evenly split.). I state this because without playoffs it is easy to schedule 2-3 weeks between sessions as open allowing time for make-up matches. Probably does not help you though!

Years back I played in a robust league - probably 36+ players. If you did not show for a match without calling opponent it was a forfeit. This was a points based league, and if you forfeited you received no points (or very minimal - I really cannot remember. You still payed into the pot though. If it was a planned cancellation, you had until like two weeks prior to season end to make it up. The onus was on the player who had to cancel. If not made up, it was ruled a forfeit and scored as such.

The leagues I play in use a random drop-in format. You show up on Monday night and are matched up with whoever is there. If you arrive late and someone wants to play a second match, that's fine. You need a minimum number of matches in the season to make the playoffs where most of the prize money is.
