|Synopsis||This booklet was produced to reflect changes approved at the 2009 Rules Revision Meeting. The
table of contents lists the following headings:
This pocket-sized booklet has fewer pages than the previous version, an improved layout and typography and is handily ring-bound to enhance its practicality. It deserves a wide readership among all short mat players, whatever their experience.
I've now (8.5.14) received a response from the ESMBA explaining the reason for the absence of information on their website regarding the laws. Under the rules of their constitution the ESMBA is required to review the laws every five years. This is scheduled for July 2014 with an updated booklet becoming available in September when I'll provide a suitable link to the ESMBA site for intending purchasers.
The ESMBA were clearly optimistic in their scheduling as it's now 30 September and I've not received my copy of the new booklet. And there's still no news on their website regarding the new laws.
