Rules and etiquettes

The rules and etiquettes of any game are there to establish fair play and  a comfortable playing environment for participants to understand. It does not matter whether it is golf, rugby or poker.


By everyone following these rules and etiquettes ENJOYABLE evenings are created without the stress of players rule bending etc.


Our venue hosts are trained to ensure that these are observed at all times.


We understand that new players will not fully understand will not fully appreciate all rules and etiquettes and will be helped through them and, if appropriate, treated in accordance to their experience on misunderstandings.


There are good reasons for all rules and etiquettes, some of which may not be immediately apparent. If you are uncertain why we do it that way, just ask.


We follow Robert’s Rules of poker, which includes etiquettes and can be found at:
