PFA Rules 2021 – one of the changes

A recent change that has been made to the game rules relates to the position of the landed jack and it is outlined in Article 7 of the International Rules:

3) That the jack must be a minimum of 50 cm from any obstacle and from the end line of the lane, it must also be a minimum of 1.5 metres from another circle or jack in use. (note: no minimum distance is required from the “side” line that separates the lanes or the dead ball lines at the side of the lanes).

Alison is the winner of our Inaugural Saturday Competition

Congratulations to Alison for winning the first of our Saturday Competitions, with Richard very close behind her. Alison won both her games, to score 26, as did Richard, but Alison only had 11 points scored against her while Richard had 14. A great afternoon’s competition, enjoyed by 16 Club members.
