  • Please dispose of all Litter in the bins provided. The Clubhouse belongs to all members, so please treat the place with the reverence and respect by keeping it clean.
  • The event is being held very late- hence we ask all members when walking to and from smoking area/ to and from cars to please ensure you keep the noise levels down to not attract unwanted interest from the authorities.
  • Listen to Announcements as we have over 200 people in attendance Alhamdullilah. With the limited amount of time, those playing sports especially Table Tennis, Darts and Pool (where we have a structured tournament) will need to be attentive as to not miss your slot and be disqualified.
  • Please bring your mugs for tea and water bottles to reduce waste.

Tournament Rules:

Table Tennis:

  • We had over 130 registrations for Table Tennis. This has brought a challenge to create a format that will work. Our SJTT team have created one – please do visit the tournify link for info.

 Darts:

  • 15-minute games
  • Darts format is to play around the world, starting with 20 descending to 1.
  • Race to hit the bullseye.
  • Each game will be 15 minutes. Winner will be the player closest to needing to hot the bullseye.
  • Each turn will have 3 shots with the darts.
  • In the event of a tie at the end of the allotted time, we will have a one dart playoff- highest number wins.

Pool:

  • Pool- 10-minute games
  • We will play 8 ball pool. (We have yellow and red balls)
  • First player to pocket a colour will be assigned that colour to then pocket all their balls.
  • The object of the game is to legally pocket the 8-ball (Black ball) in a “called” pocket, which can only be done after all the balls from a player’s assigned group have been cleared from the table.
  • Once all a player’s group of object balls are pocketed, the player attempts to sink the 8 ball. To win the game, the player first designates which pocket the 8 ball will be pocketed into and then successfully pockets the 8 ball into that pocket.
  • If the player knocks the 8 ball off the table, the player loses the game.
  • If the player pockets the 8 ball and commits a foul or pockets it into another pocket than the one designated, the player loses the game.

Carrom, Foosball, Siting VB, Sitting Cricket & E-Sports

  • These will be open to all to play- we request that all are given enough chances to play and no one stays for an extended period of time.
  • We request parents to ensure their children do share the resources to avoid any issues.
  • We are so excited to host you all on this monumental day for the club, where we can finally have a place to call our own to share with the membership.
