Foul and a Miss rule guidelines

To all Pennant Snooker players.

It is our responsibility, to the best of our ability, to ensure that our competitions run smoothly and in accordance with the highest standards of fairness and sportsmanship.

Accordingly, we would like to address a common 'discussion' and misinterpretation that arises regarding the 'foul and a miss' rule in snooker, and to ask for your assistance in promoting consistent understanding and application of this rule across all our venues.

Rule Clarification: Foul and a Miss 

The inconsistency in the application of the 'foul and a miss' rule during matches causes, at times, significant angst among competitors and spectators alike. 

The opinion of the referee should be called for if a player has all balls “on” totally obstructed by balls “not on”. In such a case, the difficulty of the escape and the skill of the player must be taken into account and that the attempt was a reasonable one in considering the possibility of success.

Remember, just because you believe you can get out of a snooker, does not mean that the person at the table can. Just because you think it is easy, does not mean that it is to the person at the table.

Please see the attached Guide that we would like all Team Captains, to print and display in your club and bring to the attention of your players.
