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.

We hope you can find what you're looking for in our website, whether you're a new player looking for a local league in which to play, a current player checking out the league tables, or just generally interested in Snooker. You are more than welcome to browse our site and if you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thought of the season:
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

thumbDIV ONE - WOKING CONS WITHDRAW FROM THE LEAGUE
April 22, 2019
I was informed last night of the withdrawal of the Woking Cons team in division one from the league. They have had few players from their squad available in the first half but with further upcoming absentees they felt it better to withdraw now then cancel matches or turn up without a full team. It is very disappointing. As they haven't played any matches during the second half of the season every other team will be awarded the maximum 10 points and all of their results from the first half will stand. KJ

thumbBILLIARDS COMPETITIONS DETAILS - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
March 1, 2019
The draw for both billiards competitions have now been made and are on the website. The closing dates differ due to an extra round to be played in the billiards handicap. These closing dates must be adhered to so please arrange your matches quickly. The finals will be played on the dates shown and the venues will be published shortly. CONTACT RULES - THE FIRST NAMED PLAYERS HAVE 14 DAYS FROM THE START OF THE ROUND TO CONTACT THE SECOND NAMED AND ARRANGE THE MATCH. IF NO CONTACT HAS BEEN RECEIVED AFTER THE 14 DAYS THE SECOND NAMED IS TO THEN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING CONTACT AND CAN PLAY THE MATCH AT THEIR HOME CLUB. IF NO CONTACT IS MADE BY THE CLOSING DATE FROM EITHER PLAYER, BOTH WILL BE ELIMINATED. BILLIARDS CHAMPIONSHIP - The matches are first to 200 up to and including the semi finals with the final over 90 minutes play. BILLIARDS HANDICAP - The trophy will be named and engraved in memory of George Harris. The handicaps are based on 200 points, on an owe and receive basis. For example, if a player Owes then he has to score 200 plus the amount he owes before the other player reaches his designated amount. If a player Receives then he has to score 200 less the amount he receives. If in the case of the tie between Ryan Mears and John Chiverton in Round Two, the handicap is Ryan Owes 60 and John receives 80 therefore Ryan has to score 260 points before John scores 120 to win the match. HANDICAPS - With quite a few 'new to billiards' entries this season the handicapper has had to assess some handicaps on very little criteria. If you have a query on a handicap then please contact me by text on 07767796102 and briefly give your reason why a match handicap should be reviewed. The aim is to make the matches as fair as possible and with your help we will do our utmost to succeed. All results by email to: andrewrockingham@hotmail.com or by text to me on 07767796102. Good luck. KJ
