In addition the BSAM MC also agreed that the State Selection Legs In 2022 will only have the TOP 16 Snooker / Top 8 Billiards   ranked players put into the main draw ( based upon ranking in state selection of 2021 ) plus any Direct Entry players who have failed to qualify for the subsequent Nationals as a Direct Entry.

Rules for Dress Code:
All participants ( men and women) must wear formal clothing for their matches i.e a formal shirt, formal trousers, socks and formal shoes. Any participant who does NOT adhere to the above dress code will not be permited to play their match.
FOUL & MISS RULE:
·         A player will have to hit the ball if he is snookered (this is mandatory).
·         If a player misses, it will be called a foul & miss and the player who has snookered him, can ask the ball to be replaced. However, there will be a maximum of 3 foul and misses i.e. after 2 re-spots, the third miss will be considered as a foul ‘only’; after which player will have the following options:
1.      Play from where the handball has come to rest
2.      Claim a free ball (if it is one)
3.      Ask the opponent to play again
4.      In case, while attempting to break a snooker and a free ball position comes into existence, there will still be a total of ONLY 3 fouls & a misses i.e. ONLY 2 re-spots. If the third shot to break the snooker fails then it will only be considered a foul. Unless, the player who has given the snooker gets a free ball, pots another ball & then gives a fresh snooker; will be entitled to a new set of foul & miss.
·         Please note that everyone must make a genuine attempt at removing snookers. After 2 attempts at removing snooker a player just cannot play the handball in any direction, which is obvious that he has not made an attempt to remove the snooker. In such a case, he will be penalized with a foul (due points will be given to the opponent) & can be asked to play the shot again (respotting).
.          From the main draw there will be unlimited foul n miss.
