Stoke Pool League est.1978

The league was been formed in 1978, 45 years ago and 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. Joined over 15 years ago by Paul Ward, they continue to be innovated in their work...

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 ..........

The league ‘brags’ to have claimed many firsts, the most recent being all three committee members are qualified referees and this year we can brag they have all reached England International teams....We now have a strong relationship with our venue sponsors including a singles league based at the venue ..
The One Frame KO....we 'experimented' with this in the ‘Rileys’ days and is now copied by most leagues …
The competition is
a ‘Double Elimination’ taking 125 single frame matches to get a champion... And new for this year we are moving forward and using our mobile phones to update the scores , getting rid of the old pen and paper . For this we are using LeagueAppLive | League & Tournament Live Scoring App... All players can download this and see LIVE scores on the night from around the league. Once again we have reshaped league and this year for example we are introducing a new three player competition for the end of the season and following the AGM we have 22 teams bidding for glory in either the leagues or the our cup competitions we run.
We now have live streaming via Facebook  'Stoke Pool League Streams' and all our videos (Over 200 videos) are on our dedicated  YouTube channel  'Stoke Pool League'.
