Dress Code:
Collared shirt, long legged pants & no hats. Pants must not be sweat or jogging pants.
No headphones or ear protection, excluding hearing aids. No using cell phones or other electronics during the match, without permission from your opponent. These are for the Tour Stops. Dress codes for the Provincials may be different.


Start Times:

These times will be enforced so if you are late, please call. The phone # for the location & the TD for each Tour Stop will be posted on the NBBA Facebook page.

Breaks During Match:

None

 

Punctuality:

Match will be forfeited if a person is not at their assigned table 10 minutes after the match is announced.


Concession Rule:
For all Pool disciplines a person must allow his opponent to pocket all required balls to win the game. If he does not he will forfeit that game plus an additional game. Examples would be removing balls from the pocket, or approaching the table before "winning ball" is pocketed. No Concession will be called after a FOUL, when only the 9 Ball or no Balls are left on the table. 
The Concession Rule is to keep your opponent in their chair when you at the table, i.e. to prevent "sharking". After a FOUL on the 9-Ball it is in most cases a mental error, not "sharking" that results in balls being placed on the table, therefore Concession Rule will not apply in these cases.
But your opponent may want you to shoot the 9-Ball after a FOUL. Please communicate.


Residency Guideline:
To participate in any NBBA sanctioned event, a person must live in New Brunswick, & have valid Provincial ID, either a NB Drivers Licence or Medicare Card.
