The EPA AGM voted on 16 March 2019 that, with immediate effect, the rules will be relaxed to allow players to play both World Rules and Black Ball Rules, up to and including County level. Anyone who has been suspended or banned from playing EPA, due to playing Black Ball Rules, will have their suspension/ban lifted.
If anyone has been banned or suspended by their County, please write to the County Secretary. If anyone has been banned or suspended by the EPA National body, please contact the National Secretary.
The rules regarding players playing the IPA Tour have not been changed.
