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.

Thought of the season:
Practice like you've never won. Play like you've never lost

thumbAPPRECIATION AND LAST WEEK EXCITEMENT
February 17, 2018
Its the last week of what has been a magnificent snooker season. Records continue to be broken with the number of century breaks along with a Division One record that now stands at 111. In the Premier there have been 19 breaks of 80 or over and you need a break of at least 95 to get on the top ten list. Three of the four divisions promotion and titles are decided with Division Two being a very close three team race. I have been playing in Division Two this season and it has been a real pleasure to meet up with so many players that have been part of the league for so long. The standard in all divisions is excellent but above all the enthusiasm and friendliness in our league is a real tribute to everyone. I would especially like to thank Phil Vowels for all of his posts on Facebook with statistics and permutations and for his match reports. He has made the season exciting and engaging and encouraged opinions and feedback. His contribution has been greatly appreciated. Finally a special thanks to every member of the Byfleet League, without you we would not have a platform to play this great game. KJ

thumbSEAN HARVEY BREAKS SETS NEW HIGHEST BREAK IN DIVISION ONE
February 8, 2018
Staines Cons SEAN HARVEY knocked in a magnificent 111 break in his league match against West Byfleets Michael Doherty. In doing so he eclipsed Paul Ganley's 106 as the divisions record break. SEAN is no stranger to the century board having recorded 8 now in Byfleet League matches since 2005. It's good to see SEAN back on the table after his recent accident. The setback doesn't seem to have adversely effected his snooker prowess! We wish SEAN all the best for a complete recovery. This season can lay claim to the best ever in terms of high breaks having equalled the eight set in the 1994/1995 season but with five 90+ in addition far exceeds the previous best. It is incredible that in the Premier Division a player now needs to make at least a 95 break in order to get on the board for the top ten breaks. It is another Golden Era in the league's history.

thumbATKINS ON SONG IN OVER 50'S FINAL
February 8, 2018
Feltham's RICHARD ATKINS defeated last years champion MARTIN COURT in the first final of the season, the Over 50's snooker. In an enthralling and extremely sporting final RICHARD seemed well in control in the opening frame until MARTIN's attempted red safety flew into the middle pocket leaving a simple black. From there he went on to clear the colours to the blue with some fluent potting. Now RICHARD needed two of the three remaining colours and MARTIN all three. With the pink on its spot and the blue fairly close RICHARD from distance knocked in the blue and cannoned the pink over a top pocket. The easy pink got him over the line. MARTIN potted well in the second frame and left RICHARD needing a snooker on the blue. He eventually left it in the open and which MARTIN had no hesitation in despatching. Final frame - RICHARD made a good break but a cracking long red followed by blue to centre put MARTIN amongst the reds with the black available in both top pockets. Inexplicitly he missed the red and a golden opportunity. RICHARD seemed to take control thereafter and a very good 27 break put him 40 points ahead with two reds left, both on cushions. MARTIN had a tough task now and eventually left RICHARD an easy red followed by a black off its spot to leave MARTIN an insurmountable task. Scores Richard 63 - 49, 39 -65, 74 -20 Martin. Both players played great snooker in spells but overall RICHARD edged it on the night. Congratulations to both on an enjoyable final. Thanks also to Ian Geldard and the West Byfleet Social Club for staging this event. It is a great venue with lovely conditions.
