The snpool Committee have decided to introduce International 8 Ball Rules for the Summer League 2023.


As well as the documents below which detail the rules and the differences between World Rules and International 8 Ball Rules, please note the following information for the coming Summer League season:


The "Golden Break" and "Golden Duck" rules are only used in Ultimate Pool. These rules are not part of the standard rules and cannot be used in our league.


Also, we will NOT be using a stopwatch in any of the Summer League matches until the Finals event. This is to enable people to learn the rules with no pressure and help to understand them before potentially using them in the Winter League 2023/24.


We have got some information in videos and documents below regarding the differences between World Rules and International Rules which would be worth looking at and will be updated periodically:
