UPDATED - 19th of October 2017
(Additional Mini League Rule. No two players may play each other more than once.)

The Walkley Friendly Pool League is played throughout the pubs, clubs and snooker halls of Walkley, Sheffield.

League matches are played on Monday evenings, beginning at 8:30pm and are played over the best of seven frames,
the first five of which are singles match ups and the last two of which are doubles match ups.




Post Season Mini League

There will be three mini leagues, the winners of which will compete in a grand final.
Matches will be played on the Mondays between the Doubles Knockout Final and the AGM.

Each mini league match will be the best of nine frames of singles.
The match will consist of 3 sets of 3 frames.
Within each set three different players must be used.
(Though a player may play in one, two or all three sets.)
A team can thus play a match with any number between 3 and 9 different players.
Two players may not play each other more than once in a match.

The Grand Final will be a round robin of three frame matches.
The winner will be the team with the most points with frame difference deciding ties.
A further 3 frame play off will be played if two teams are level at the top.
If all three are level then they will play noughts and crosses (followed by hangman, if required).

Team sheets for the mini league can be downloaded from the Downloads page.
