As announced at the end of last season the GEBA has moved to 10 teams per division to ensure a fair and true home and away season can be completed over 18 weeks prior to finals.
Unfortunately, the overall reduction in team numbers has resulted in consideration of numerous options for the make up of the divisions. After much consideration and in depth analysis of these options, Divisions 1-5 consisting of 10 teams and Division 6 with 13 teams was selected for the 2017 season.
The 50 teams in Divs 1-5 will play 18 matches, 9 home and 9 away games and have a top 5 finals system.
The 13 teams in Div 6 will play 16 matches (4 teams twice), have two byes, 8 home and 8 away games and have a top 8 finals system.
The draw (VERSION 2) and updated Team Reference Docs are available to download from GEBA Season page here.
GPC Win their First Div 1 Flag
A decent crowd has watched the Div 1 Final tonight between the Croatian Club and Geelong Pool Club which has brought GEBA 2016 season to an end and what a match it was to finish the season with all bar one of the singles going to the 3rd frame and the match decided in doubles.
It would be appreciated if Captains at all venues could please arrange to observe a minutes silence prior to the commencement of matches to remember the recent passing of two of our own, Graham Carr and Michael "MIK" Hanson.
Match night procedures have changed for the 2016 Season. Both Home and Away Captains (or their reps) are required to enter and confirm scores on-line respectively.
