London play Inter-County pool in Region 7 of the EPA, which includes Berkshire, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey, and Sussex.

There are 5 teams: Men's A, B and C, Ladies, and Juniors (U18), each of which plays the other counties home and away, once a month on Sundays, for the title of Regional Champions. The Regional winners (and from 2011 also the runners-up) go to Great Yarmouth in the spring of the following year to compete for the National Title.

London are current National Champions in the A section, and in 2010 we not only did the A and B team double but also our Juniors were National runners-up!

We conduct trials for new players in January of each year.

GLCPA organises the London Inter-League competitions, in which affiliated leagues put forward one or more teams to compete against each for 2 London titles: the Interleague Champions and the Interleague Knockout Cup Champions.

The winners and runners-up of each of these competitions go to Great Yarmouth to compete for the National titles (in the Autumn for the KO Cup and in the following spring for the Interleague trophy), and also compete in a Regional Inter-League challenge cup against Inter-League winners from the other counties in Region 7.

National Honours

The starting points for most pool players looking to develop their game, or just have fun playing it in a competitive environment, are the many local leagues being played in pubs and clubs across London.

If you are looking for such a league in your area, check out the "Affiliated Leagues" link below. If there isn't a league local to you in that list please feel free to get in touch with GLCPA, or post a question in our forums.

Leagues themselves are encouraged to affilate to Greater London County Pool Association. This brings many benefits including:

  • Entry into the National Champion of Champions competitions

    for the league winners and singles winners
  • Entry into the London Interleague competition

    for a team (or teams) representing the league. They play teams representing other leagues in London, for the chance to go forward to the National Interleague competition.
  • Support and advice

    regarding for example Rules and matters of a Disciplinary or Organisational nature.
  • Individual benefits

    players in the league become eligible to register, through GLCPA, with the national governing body the EPA. They can then trial for one of the County sides (Men/Ladies/Juniors) which in turn opens the possibility of earning a trial for the England squad.

    They can also enter individual events such as the Region 7 Tour, other national competitions which are restricted to EPA members (including the National Individual Amateur competition), and they become eligible for other events closed to GLCPA members such as our Singles Leagues and World Masters qualifier.

There is a great deal more information on all the above in the "Benefits of Affiliating" document linked to below.

If your league does not currently affiliate to GLCPA, but you'd like them to take advantage of the opportunities listed above, please put it to your league's committee and ask them to have a look at this page and/or get in touch.

Hampshire B 24-20 London B, 22/05/2016

Inter CountyHaving made our longest trip of the season to Basingstoke, an abundance of availability presented Captain Clayton with a selection dilemma. After some tough decisions the B's were left with several players with A team experience, giving us the confidence of getting a good result against our Hampshire counterparts.

Early signs were positive as Hobbis, O'Connor, Kelly and Gear reversed our unwelcome trend of starting slowly to put us 4-0 up. Further wins from Lawrence, Clayton, Coppen and Francis allowed us to open up an 8-3 lead at the end of the first set.

The second set began in similar fashion with Kelly securing his first break-dish for London County; this, sadly, was as good as it got for a while, as we remarkably lost the next NINE frames. Hewson reduced the deficit to 2 as we went in 12-10 down at the halfway stage.

A mid-match pep talk from Vice-Captain Gayler increased the energy and noise levels from our side but this didn't translate to a numerical comeback. Losing 3 of the first 4 frames in the third set left us with a big mountain to climb, as Hampshire pushed further ahead to go into the last set 18-15 to the good.

The arrival of the fashionably-late (now come on, that's pushing it a bit) Bacon aside, the fourth set followed a similar pattern. After the first 8 frames were shared, the win was secured in frame 42 as Hampshire eventually completed a 24-20 victory.

Outstanding performances came from Clayton, Hobbis and Hewson, all of whom finished with 3/4, while Kelly could be happy with the aforementioned BD. Unfortunately, our overall disappointment at the result overshadowed these successes as we reflected on the day.

Still, onwards and upwards! Still in a good position in the standings and still determined to repeat the dose we delivered at regional champion Berkshire's celebration party last year when we welcome them to London next month. With Clayton and Gayler both missing, the onus will be on those remaining to give them something else to smile about from their sun loungers!

London C 22 -22 Kent C (10th April 2016)

Inter CountyA massive turnout for our second home match with 40 players out of 43 turning up, this meant that the C team had to have 6 subs and that didn’t even include Jeremy!

Kent started very well winning the first set 7 to 4 and then also won the 2nd set 6 to 5 with some impressive plays, but London were not done and took the most important set 3 with a 7 – 4. This left us behind just one point at 16 – 17 for the final set.

We had a great run of 7 in a row in the final set to take the lead but Kent stood firm and won the last 3 frames to level the match at 22 – 22, The team performed exceptionally well coming from behind for the first time to end finishing level.

This time last year Kent beat London at our place 27 – 17, and we returned the favour at their place winning 26 -18. Last year we lost 3 home games in a row at the start of the season, and only 1 game away all season. This year we have not lost home or away and sit at the top of the table, so we are in the best position to take the title. COME ON LONDON.

Man of the match has to go the very reliable Ben Macintosh, what a great player he is  Also a shout out to Peter Pan who is the current leader of the rankings with a very impressive 11/12, could we have the top ranked player and the region; I think so, what ya saying London, let’s do this!

Inter CountySadly another defeat for the London Seniors.

For the third time this year we have failed to get out of the starting gates being the wrong side of 2-8 at the end of the second set.

The London old boys rallied in the third winning 3-2 and again in the fourth 4-1.

Going into the final set it everything was attainable being down only two frames at 9-11.

Unfortunately we were unable to capitalise and take our chances losing the last 1-4.

Clearly we are able to win sets but need to find more consistency.

London B 24-20 Kent B 20th April

Inter CountyThis game produced so many quality moments, it’s difficult to focus on them all. Most importantly, every player contributed at least one frame and we kept the unbeaten run going. Oh, and we’re top of the league. Bosh

Set 1

Traditional slow starters London B appeared to have turned the corner by flying into a 3-0 lead including convincing finishes from Danny & Rob. However, Kent found form which London couldn’t match for the next 7 frames and only Mickey’s win saved us from facing a daunting deficit.

London B 4-7 Kent B

Set 2

A tough set followed as Kent continued to grind frames out but vital finishes from Connor, Jack & Adam kept us within striking distance. Will’s rousing mid-frame speeches ensured focus never dropped and this talented bunch were about to kick into gear in a major way.

London B 6-5 Kent B

Set 3

This was one of the finest sets of pool I’ve ever been part of. Kent’s momentum was blown to smithereens as they couldn’t live with the relentless finishing. Six consecutive frames (inspired by a ferocious Moffat roar after his clearance), including big wins for Griffindor & Andre, were followed by another impressive performance from Connor. The captain’s victory to close out the set ensured that London were five ahead, needing only 4 more for the win.

London B 9 (yes, nine!) – 2 Kent B

Set 4

Closing out a match is never simple and Kent played well to bring the scores to within one before Ryan won a huge frame. Once again the pressure was on the tail and Will ‘The Power’ Gayler showed that class is permanent by taking the penultimate frame. In this set we proved that when we’re not hitting the heights such as in set 3, we have enough ability & talent to get over the line. Every single member of this team should be proud of what we’ve achieved so far this season.

London B 5-6 Kent B (Overall 24-20)

A special mention for Mehmet & Shane who represented the C team and who I’m sure will get the opportunity to show their quality for the Bs again in the very near future.

There was another impressive performance from Chris Hobbis who moved up to the As and won 3 out of 4. Chris is in terrific form and has lost only 3 frames all season.

It has been mentioned by a number of London squad members how well the younger players such as Connor, Tony & Jack have adapted to life in the Bs. The spirit in this team is exceptional and the support offered by everyone regardless of winning or losing a frame ensures we remain a strong, content unit.

Man of the match goes to Connor Hewson. Nerves of steel at crucial points in the match and produced some amazing pots. Well done!

Inter CountyAn important home win against a decent Kent side and generally a good performance, though we could perhaps have hoped to win by a slightly wider margin.

We shaded the first set 6 v 5 and then put in a really good second set, winning it 8 v 3 with a run of 7 consecutive frames, for a 14 v 8 half time lead.

Kent then came right back at us, winning the third set 7 v 4 to halve our lead to 3 frames. They then won the last set 6 v 5 but London had already done enough for the win, Chris Hobbis securing the 3 points in frame 39.

Another good 3 out of 4 for Chris in his second match for the A's, consecutive 3 out of 4's for Jack Pople and a welcome 3 out of 4 for Robbie Robb after a difficult couple of matches.

Man of the match goes to Joe Prince for a very good, composed 4 out of 4.

London Senior's vs Sussex 28th February 2016

Inter CountyThe second game of the year looked a little more promising than our previous disaster and we were at least respectable in the first set trailing by only one with the score at 3-2 to the visitors with Paul Gafa and Peter Wells notching up wins.

Dread set in again after losing the second set 4 - 1 with only Paul Dawson registering a win and it was starting to look like a repeat performance from last time with unhappy consequences for the seniors leaving us trailing 7-3.

However, like a phoenix rising from the ashes the London boys suddenly started potting some balls!

We won the third set 4 - 1

We won the fourth set 3-2

Going into the final set we were all square at 10 - 10.

With yours truly notching up a win in the first frame we were ahead! 11-10

We could smell victory...

Alas it was not to be this time, we lost the next four and were defeated 14 - 11

Still a massive improvement from our first match and we proved the new team is competing at the right level. Only a matter of time until we get our first win under our belts.

Man of the match has to go to the injured Paul Dawson for hobbling around the table double quick time and not incurring a time foul.

Paul Dawson 3/5
Paul Gafa 3/5
Joe Kane 0/2
Martin Storey 1/5
Pete Thomas 3/5
Peter Wells 1/3


Inter CountyWELL DONE LADIES! What a great follow up to our first game, with a 30-14 win.

We took the first set 8-3, which help set up the momentum for the rest of the game, the second set was slightly closer at 7-4, by then the whole team was buzzing, we knew we was on for a really good win if we could just keep it up, and keep it up we did winning the third set 8-3, by then we had won the game but that didn't stop us, we won the last set 7-4 to make it a fantastic result!!

Everyone played amazing, with most of the team winning 3/4, well done Michaela winning 4/4 again, keep it up girl England's calling! Player of the match goes to Kelly, well done newbie!

If we keep up the excellent play, we will be region champs!!

Next game is Kent, we all know what needs to be done, but for once I think we have the skills to back it up as well as the mental attitude to take them, so COME ON LONDON LET'S 'AV IT!!!!!

London C 24 -20 Sussex C (13th March 2016)

Inter CountyLast season the C team were great at winning away but kept losing at home, I am very glad to say that we have learned from our mistakes and we have bonded early resulting in this win, we are already supporting each other and keeping spirits high throughout the game.

We struggled to get going with bad runs throughout the match. However, we kept our heads focused on the task ahead and won the first two sets 6 -5 taking the score to 12-10.

Then along came Jordan to replace Dean and dished up in the first game of the third set, but alas our chances were few and far between and we ended up losing the third set 5-6 but still leading 17-16.

The Final set was very tantalising with Sussex levelling up at 18-18, then along came unbeaten this season Peter Pan to take us back into the lead. This started a spurt of wins with a couple of slip ups as we ended the match a good 24-20 win.

Man of the match has to go to the fairytale start that is Peter Pan with 8 out of 8 so far, can he make 3 out of 3 MOTMs. Our next match is again Home versus Kent on 10th April, so get practising and remember to up the noise meter in the third set.. COME ON LONDON...

Dave Hall 1/2


Inter CountyAfter an away win at Surrey and a semi final appearance at the National Finals we went into this match in a confident mood and raced into a 7 v 2 lead. We lost the last two frames of the set but even so at 7 v 4 a wide margin home win looked the most likely outcome.

Sussex clearly had other ideas. They won the next two sets, both 6 v 5, reducing our half time lead to 12 v 10 and then to just a single frame going into the last set. They played pretty well to get themselves right back in the match but in truth we threw away quite a few frames.

The last set was better from London and we shaded it 6 v 5, and the match 23 v 21, but will need to be much sharper if we're to beat Kent at home next month.

Another 3 out of 4 for Dave Fernandez and 3 out of 4 for returning captain Jack Pople, but man of the match goes to Nigel Clarke for a very impressive 3 out of 4 after enduring a tough time last month.

London B v Sussex B

Inter CountyLONDON 'B' V SUSSEX 'B'

So after a draw against Surrey, the london Bs turned our attention to the first home game of the season against sussex. We welcomed Danny Moffatt and Chris Hobbis to the team after spells in the As. The team was in high spirits after the team talk by captain Cassius and we was raring to go.

***SET ONE***

Following tradition of slow starts to county matches, we went 5-1 down. But rob cork, jack lawrence, Connor hewson, will gayler and Micky Clayton picked things up to close the deficit to 1 frame.

Set score


***SET TWO***

We reversed the set score in the second, with some good pool being played and a couple of us taking out some good finishes, a couple of chants from the junior national team champions livened the team up and got us to 11-11 going into the third set.

Set score



Shane O'reilly came in for Danny Moffatt at half time but after a bit of confusion with the referee about choice of colour, was unlucky to win his frame, sussex battled hard but so did london. Again another 6-5 set score in favour of Sussex. Score at the end of set 3 17-16 Sussex.

***SET FOUR***

The final set, and again a big push by the london boys, everyone getting behind each other, team morale was high and we believed we could get that first win on the board. Shout out to jasper bacon on his B team debut coming in for Andre. So we come to 21-21 with will gayler and Micky C to bring the match home. And both of them played superb frames to get the job done. Game set and match to london with a scoreline of 23-21!

Set score



Will Gayler 4/4

London Senior's vs Surrey 28th February 2016

Inter CountyIt was always going to be a struggle this year for the London senior's having lost two of our best players from last year, this was going to be a period where we needed to regroup.

Our first match of the season reflected this with a crushing 19-6 defeat, the only bonus being things couldn't get much worse!

No one really got going on the day and Surrey proved to be a tough opposition, taking no prisoners.

Top scorer was Joe Kane managing two wins.

The rest makes for pretty dismal reading.

Paul Dawson 1/5
Paul Gafa 0/3
Joe Kane 2/5
George Hutchinson 1/5
Martin Storey 1/2
Pete Thomas 1/5

Despite the disappointing scoreline, team morale was good and we all looked forward to making a better account of ourselves next time.
