The league this year celebrates its 40th year, having been formed in 1978.The league was originally based in the Longton and Blurton areas when there was an abundance of public houses. Despite Tuesday evening being the ‘top night’ for pool in Staffordshire the league has grown into a top class league. Since 1985 it has been run by George Bradbury and Tony Hazledine and even after all these years they continue the drive ‘to be the best.
Since 1978 the league has prided its self in providing top class pool on a Tuesdays night. Since the eighties the chairman and secretary have ensured that Stoke Pool League is the counties number one Tuesday pool league in Staffordshire ..........
