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.

CURRENT SEASON 2012



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.

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.

13.07.14 LADIES HOME TO BERKSHIRE

Inter CountyThe last time we played Berkshire we won 28-16 which was a great result and my expectations were high. Having said that it will never be an easy game against them as they have some very good new player in their squad and a few good older players too.

MATCH PLAY

We stormed ahead in the first leg winning 9-2, what a great start, just what we needed to boost the team moral.

Then we took our foot off the pedal and disaster struck. This is not the first time this has happened to us, and we only managed to win 3 frames making it 12-10 to us. Fair play to Berkshire they took advantage of our complacency and showed us how to make a come back.

The 3rd leg was tight as we managed to win 6 frames to make it 18-15, a good recovery by us, but we must keep it up and not let them back in the game.

The final leg was nip and tuck as both teams knuckled down to try and get the win.
It was such a tight leg that it came down to the last frame.
we needed it to win the game and they needed it to draw.

Last player was myself and I had to draw on all my experience and dig in deep as I had no chance of a finish in sight. Luckily they left themselves a tricky cut on the black which they missed and left sitting on the bottom cushion. I had a long pot which I made and got a great position on my last ball to give me the angle to pot and come off 3 cushions to land perfect alongside the black for an easy pot to win the game.

Thanks ladies please don't do that to me again, I must have aged 10 years. Just win your games and give me an easy time.

Well done to Berkshire for a hard fought match.

LONDON LADIES HOME TO SURREY

Inter CountyWe needed a good result from this match especially after the disaster we had against Hampshire the previous month. It turned out to be a hard fought match, with games being given away by both teams. The end result was a draw and I feel was the right result. Well done to all the ladies that took part.

The first leg ended 6-5 to us and to be honest we should have won a few more.

The second leg ended 11-11 and I told the players if we were going to win we needed to step up a gear and pull a few frames ahead to make it harder for Surrey to get back into the game.

The third leg we managed to pull ahead 16-13 and it was looking good, but Surrey came back and it ended 17-16 to us.

By the fourth leg we were playing on 3 tables as the games got longer and the player fought harder to win frames. Near the end of the game we managed to be 22-20 ahead, only needing to win 1 frame from our last 2. But it was not to be and the game ended in a great fought draw. Well done to Surrey.

Player of the match was awarded to Corinne. Well done.

The first leg started really well as we went 6-2 up but we lost the last 3 games making it 6-5 to us.

The second leg was a disaster, we won 1 game from the 11 putting us 7-15 down.

The third leg we lost the next 2 games and the team moral was so low and support almost nonexistent you would have thought we had already lost the match.
I pulled the team aside and gave them a team talk to try to boost their morale. We only managed to win 2 games putting us 9-24.

The last leg was just as bad and the final score was 12-32.

We were all so disappointed with our performance as we know that we can all do so much better and have done in previous matches.

I would like to welcome Lisa Massheder to the team who played well in her first match for us.

I had told the team at the end of the match that I was not going to award a player of the match but on reflection I will and it goes to Charlotte.

Lets hope that we can turn things around and get our support and morale back for our next game against Surrey.

We lost the first leg 4-7, giving away games needlessly.
The second leg we lost 5-6, playing better but still not up to par.
We won the third leg 6-5 upping our game and showing Sussex we meant business.
On the last leg we managed to get 1 frame away at 18-19 and then we lost silly games again allowing Sussex to win 24-20.

Disappointing result especially as we played well to get within 1 frame away. It was always going to be a tough game and Sussex did well to take the advantages that we gave them. Well done Sussex.

New player for us this month was Carol McKenzie. Well done Carol. I know you were disappointed with your first two games, but you showed your true form winning your last two.

Well done to Sarah, Angie and myself for getting 3 out of 4.

Player of the match went to Sarah, well done

Sussex Juniors v London Juniors 13/04/14

Inter CountyOn Sunday 13th April, London Juniors faced last year's Regional Champions, Sussex, in Brighton. This was a very important match as a win would mean we would be top of the table.

The team was Tony Griffin, Mehmet Tango, Jasper Bacon, Chris Panayiotou, Chris Wormsley, Shane O'Reilly, Kieran Osborne, Billy Levingbird, Sam Baker, Connor Hewson and Ethan Cook.

The battle was hard and difficult, losing the first set 6-5, but winning the second 7-4 to reach halfway 12-10 up.

Shaun Wormsley was subbed on for Ethan Cook for the third set, which Sussex won 6-5.

In the 4th set, Alan Bushell replaced Kieran Osborne.

It came down to the last frame, with London 22-21 up, and Billy Levingbird won to secure the victory. The team was ecstatic. After the match had finished, and everyone's hand had been shaken, everyone on the team was so pleased, and left with big smiles on their faces.

Special mentions to Chris Wormsley for 4/4, and Sean Halligan awarded Man of the Match to Billy Levingbird for holding it together in the last frame, along with the entire team.

(Match report prepared by Ethan Cook)

London Juniors v Kent Juniors 23/03/14

Inter CountyLondon Juniors played Kent Juniors on Sunday 23rd March, welcoming back former team mates Jack and Oliver Lawrence.

The team was Tony Griffin, Jasper Bacon, Shane O'Reilly, Shaun Wormsley, Connor Hewson, Mehmet Tango, Kieran Osborne, Sam Baker, Chris Wormsley, Chris Panayiotou and Billy Levingbird.

The first 2 sets were a close call with London winning them both 6-5, giving them a 2 point lead at halftime.

The third set was more hopeful as London won 7-4, still with the starting 11.

In set 4, Ethan Cook replaced Sam Baker, and although the set was lost 6-5, the match was won 24-20.

Special mentions to Connor Hewson with 4/4, sharing man of the match with Chris Panayiotou and Kieran Osborne.

London Ladies Home to Kent 23.03.14

The first set we managed to get 5 frames but to be quite honest it should have been more as Kent were not at their best. The ladies got behind each other and the support was good.

The second set Kent had settled down and we only managed to get 1 frame. Our support seemed to go down hill at this stage, so a quiet talk to the team to get us back in the game.

The third set we managed to get 5 frames, a much better performance and support by all.

The final set we managed to get 4 frames and the support was good again.

Well done ladies we did what we set out to do and we did ourselves proud.

Our new player for this match was May who played a great game and just missed potting the black ball. Better luck next time

It was a tight first leg, London just scraping a 6-5 lead.
We then stormed away in the second leg with a 9-2 following this on with a 7-4 3rd leg. The final leg was another 6-5 but should have been more, but fair play to Berkshire they did well.

Well done to all the team, I would like to thank you all as we pulled together as a team and I hope that we can keep this standard up for the rest of the season.

I would also like to thank the new players who played their first game for London, Sarah and Amy who both played really well. We all know it's not easy to come into a new team, especially a county team and settle in as quickly as they did and win games. Well done.

Women of the match goes to Amy Alton

London Juniors at Yarmouth 28/2-2/3/14

Inter CountyDespite finishing 3rd in the region, the juniors were fortunate enough to be given a wild card, as one of the other regions didn't field a junior section. For most of the lads, it was their first time at Yarmouth, but would give them valuable experience for when they qualify on merit.

The draw was particularly cruel, being pitched against Leicester at 9am Saturday morning. I have my doubts as to how many of them would normally be awake at that time, let alone be ready for a 44 frame match!!

And so it proved. Whilst there was no shortage of application, I certainly counted three or four times where winning positions were squandered needlessly. Leicester ran out comfortable winners, 23-12, showing what a difference a few frames makes. Had those opportunities been taken, the score would have been a lot closer going into the final stages, and they would have been under more pressure.

Leicester went on to win the main event.

So on to the knockout cup, with improvements required to ensure the weekend didn't end early. Being drawn against Kent was an opportunity to lay down a marker for the season. Although Kent had finished ahead of London in the region, everyone was hungry to put the record straight.

The final score of 23-13 (maybe 23-14) certainly did that. The improvement was huge. The lads mixed the game up, playing safety's rather than going for speculative pots, and punishing their mistakes. On that performance, Kent will not be relishing the game in a fortnight's time!!!

One more win would now put them into the semi-finals, and the next opponents were Bristol A. In the first round proper, Bristol beat Sussex 24-22 after a play off, so the lads were under no illusions this was a tough game.

Unfortunately they got off to the worst start imaginable, going 6-0 down. Looking at the Bristol team, they didn't appear to have anyone over the age of 15!! The lads had their backs right up against the wall, but they came back fighting. This was their third match of the day, which I think is hard enough for adults, let alone youngsters, and most of them were breaking new ground with it all.

That said, they scrapped for all they were worth all the way through. High fives for every frame won, and consoling pats on the back for losers. Ultimately though, the mountain was just too high, and Bristol won 23-19, very relieved to have got over the line.

Sean Halligan declared that he was proud of their efforts, and the improvement over the day was immense.

Whilst the weekend didn't result in a fairy tale trophy, the juniors gained so much experience they can take into this season.

The aim now is to win the region, and I think they can!

Berkshire Juniors v London Juniors 23/2/14

Inter CountyThe team was Tony Griffin, Shane O'Reilly, Chris Wormsley, Shaun Wormsley, Connor Hewson, Billy Levingbird, Chris Panayiotou, Jasper Bacon, Mehmet Tango, Ethan Cook and Sam Baker.

A slow start saw Berkshire taking a 3-1 lead, but London battled back to take the set 6-5.
The second set was an improvement, London winning 7-4, to take a 13-9 lead overall.

A half time substitution saw Kieran Osborne coming in for Ethan Cook, and the third set was won 9-2.

Alan Bushell came in in the 4th set for Shaun Wormsley, and the set was won 8-3.

Final score 30-14. Tony Griffin, Billy Levingbird and Mehmet Tango all got 4/4, with Mehmet winning man of the match

Special mention for Sam Baker, getting 3/4 on his debut.

LADIES TEAM HOME TO HAMPSHIRE-LOST 18-26

Inter CountyThanks to everyone who made it to the match. We did really well to pull a few back, at one point we were trailing 19-9.

Everyone played really well, a special well done to Sue and myself for winning 3 out of 4.

I think the whole team enjoyed playing Hampshire, they were such a good bunch.
I hope everyone's got 1st December in their heads, as it looks like we might all be trying out for Hampshire LOL LOL.

We've had a few new ladies interested in joining the team next season, so with any luck we shouldn't be short LOL.

The provisional date for the trials is 26th January, will let you know for definite, when I know.

Looks like the Ladies Open is going to be on 8th December at Canavans. I'll let you know details nearer the time.

I know we can and will do better next season, we all have the ability, we just need to believe in ourselves. WE CAN DO IT!!!

COME ON THE LONDON LADIES, LET'S KICK SOME BUTT IN YARMOUTH.
