Billiards & Snooker League

   
 
 

The Byfleet & District Billiards & Snooker League was founded in 1946 and has developed into a highly competitive league for players of all standards. We currently run 4 divisions of 8 teams for Snooker and 3 divisions of 8 teams for Billiards with over 300 players registered throughout.

The Snooker season runs from September through to February, with a number of knockout competitions running throughout. Billiards starts immediately after the Snooker has finished and runs until June.

thumbHOW TO BEHAVE ON MATCH NIGHTS!!!! CODE OF CONDUCT
September 9, 2018
I must remind all players that the Byfleet League has a tradition of valuing sportsmanship along with the etiquette that the great games of snooker and billiards demand. All players are expected to honour the game, which includes respecting their opposition and the referee. At the start to shake hands,and at the conclusion of each hard fought game a handshake and congratulations on a well played game is what should be instilled by all captains to their players. Referees are bound to occasionally make mistakes but their decision is final. You may query a decision but if affirmed then there should be no further questioning. Mobile phones should be on silent and calls should not be made or received in the snooker room. The level of noise should be reasonable and not bordering on gamesmanship. Players should not leave the table during play without the permission of the referee, not concede a frame unless snookers are required and immediately vacate the table after a missed shot. There are to be no breaks between frames or practicing on adjacent tables once the match has started. We are a sociable league and generally members are looking for an enjoyable evening. If players feel put off by the level of noise or behaviour during their game then please point this out at the outset. It is expected that in this situation the players wishes will be respected. Both teams end the match by sharing food and sometimes drink and this comradery is a time for reflection on the games or for some friendly banter etc. If any of this is too much for any player to comply to then I make no apology and say that there is no place in this league for you. All players in the Byfleet League are expected to abide by the above. Failure to do so will result in a disciplinary hearing judged by the committee.

thumbNO MARKS FOR USING BLUE CHALK!!!
August 22, 2018
Would players please not use the dark blue chalk often used by pool players. It leaves marks on the table and more importantly on the cue ball. This can result in 'kicks' or bad contacts and be off putting to your opponent. Lets try and make the game enjoyable for everyone!

thumbNEW SEASON STARTS SEPTEMBER 13th
August 22, 2018
Well members, here we go again, summer's over, evenings are getter darker, must be time to dust off the cues. The new snooker season starts on September 13th. Fixtures have been sent to all club reps and to our IT expert and they should be on the website soon. Just a few changes to report. In the Premier Division the Woking Snooker Centre team have joined up with Knaphill and are playing out of the Knaphill Club. Woking Snooker Centre will be without a team so West Byfleet Social A who finished in one of the relegation positions will remain in the top echelon. This late arrangement means that there is a Bye in Division One. We have lost Addlestone RBL after many years in the league but gained an extra team from Walton Comrades. The meeting dates are on the Diary Date section of the website and hopefully you will all be ready and set to play on the opening night. I wish you all a very enjoyable season and every success at whatever level you have reached.
