2015 London Opens

The 2015 London Opens will be the biggest and best for a number of years. Events that regularly drew in excess of 100 entrants in the 2000s, the opens have not hit those heights in the last few years; however 2015 promises to be different.

With a huge help from our sponsors, we are able to add 800 pounds of prize money to the events this year, as well as offering streaming on the day, a fully qualified referee for all events, and live scoring.

  • Saturday 28th November: Juniors and Seniors Opens
  • Sunday 29th November: Ladies Open
  • Sunday 6th December: Main Open


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.

Sussex C 20 -24 London C (1st Nov 2015)

Inter CountySussex C 20 -24 London C (1st Nov 2015)

With determination and great team spirit throughout 2015, London as a county vastly Improved on a poor 2014 performance.

The A team won the Region; Ladies and came 2nd; Seniors, B and C teams came third.

The C team performed great as now expected on the last game of the season winning 24 -20, this meant that we came third in the region because of only 3 frames behind Kent.

Shane O’Really (his new name) has really matured into a very good well-balanced player, and with an outstanding performance gets the final man of the match, well done fella.

Sussex (Home) v London C Match synopsis

Set 1: Sussex C 3-8 London C
Set 2: Sussex C 8-14 London C

London set off very well with a commanding lead and with every expectation of hammering in a strong win.

Set 3: Sussex C 15-18 London C

However Sussex proved their metal and came back at London winning the
set 7 - 4

Set 4: Sussex C 20-24 London C

Set 4 was shared with both teams wanting to get the best possibly finish to the season, the frames went one way then another but at 20 – 20 London powered through the last four frames to win 24-20. Well done London

Inter CountyAnother away win and a result that was good enough to win us the 2015 regional title!

The match itself was a pretty scrappy affair. London shaded the first set 6 v 5 but lost the next two sets by the same score, 11 v 11 at half time and 17 v 16 down going into the last set.

It could have been worse than that as we trailed 10 v 6 and 15 v 12 but responded well on both occasions.

We really knuckled down in the fourth set and played some decent stuff, winning it 8 v 3.

Dave brought us level at 17 v 17, Alex then put us 18 v 17 up only for Jordan to lose, 18 v 18. Tony, Rupe and Joe all won, 21 v 18 up (and nationals qualification assured), Danny lost but Jack won, 22 v 19. Andy lost, 22 v 20...

...then, with news filtering through that Berkshire had only managed a draw against Surrey, we needed just one of the last two frames to win the region and when Sussex's John Cairns unluckily potted the black early in the 43rd frame against Robbie it was 23 v 20.

Frame, match and region to London!

Joe and Jerry both won 3 out of 4 but clear man of the match for us was Rupe with an excellent 4 out of 4.

Dave and Jordan both earned well deserved England trials and we can all now look forward to the 2016 national finals next March. Come on London!!

Sussex Seniors 14 London Seniors 6

For the second season running London have missed out on a trip to Yarmouth for the finals on the last day of the season.

Just a draw against Sussex would have been enough to get London through as group runners up. The match started off on the wrong footing for London as only Pete Thomas was able to register a win in the first set.

Paul Gafa’ got in on the act along with Pete Thomas again in the second set, but the match was slipping away faster than the Thames tide. These two players were the only two to trouble the scorers with Pete Thomas in particular playing very well winning all four of his frames as London bowed out with a thumping third defeat of the season, 14-6.

But for 2015 unfortunately there will be no come back from this one as Sussex sneak above us to the nick the qualifying spot for the finals.

11th October Berkshire C 23- 21 London C

Inter CountyThis was a tense match with both sides needing to win to stay in the running for the region champions.

The match could of gone either way with Berkshire taking the first set 6-5, london the second 6-5, london the third 7-4 to leave the score at 18-15, and then Berkshire came back in the last set 8-3 to take the game 23-21.

Very close match indeed and our spirit did not waver, but unfortunately a few unlucky frames cost us dear.

Steve Burke with a commanding performance and 4/4 rightly deserves man of the match.

With London tied on combined score with Kent at 925 each London could win the combined, and the C team will not let the side down on the last game.. Come on London....

Inter CountyOur first away win of the season and a result that gives us a shot at winning the region.

That didn't look likely after Berkshire won the opening set 7 v 4 and the second set 6 v 5 to establish a 13 v 9 half time lead. However the London come-back had already begun by then as we had been 11 v 5 down midway through that set before taking 4 of the last 6 frames.

In the third and fourth sets we dug deep, played some good stuff and supported each other wholeheartedly. We won the third set 8 v 3 to nudge ahead 17 v 16 and managed to maintain that momentum to win the last set 7 v 4, Robbie Robb securing victory with a cool finish in the penultimate frame.

Four players won 3 out of 4, Joe Prince shading man of the match on this occasion, but this was primarily a really good all round team effort, a performance we can all be proud of.

Hopefully we can reproduce something similar away against Sussex next month.

Inter County11.09.15 Berkshire (away)
Berkshire Seniors 8 London Seniors 12

London took a step closer to the National Finals with an impressive 12-8 victory away at the current league leaders.

London were pretty consistent and dominated every set winning each set 3-2 with perhaps the most important being the second set where we came back from 2-0 down to win the last 3 frames to lead 6-4 and give ourselves a platform to go on to win the match.

Once again Glen Tingley was the spearhead of the Londoners attack winning every frame he played with good support from the improving Pete Thomas. A fine all round team performance with all chipping in.

This result now means anything other than a defeat to Sussex on the last match of the season will see the old timers grace the Nationals in March 2016.

Inter CountyAnother good home win that keeps us very much in contention to qualify for the national inter county finals.

We won the first set 8 v 3 and the second 7 v 4 for a 15 v 7 half time lead and we then shaded the third and fourth sets, both 6 v 5, to record our biggest win of the season so far.

A good 3 out of 4 for Dave Rawlinson sees him go joint top of the regional rankings and another 4 out of 4 for Jordan O'Connor puts him only a couple of frames behind, but our man of the match was undoubtedly Robbie Robb with an excellent all round performance, also winning 4 out of 4.

London C 28 - 16 Hamshire C (13th September 2015)

Inter CountyLondon C 28 - 16 Hampshire C (13th September 2015)

London C has the potential to win the region for the first time, so with three matches left in the season we needed a great win and high score to put pressure on the other county teams!

With the comradeship that we have shown over the season, I had every confidence in the team coming through winners once again….and they did not let me down supporting each other throughout the ups and downs of the match winning by a great 28 – 16 score.

Man of the match goes to Bruno who played with great spirit and determination winning 4/ 4, also a shout out to Jonathan Tindall winning 4/4 too and Rob Speller allowing Joe to take his last match.

Watch out Berkshire you're next!

Set 1: We started off great with a break dish from Rob Speller and won the set 8-3.

Set 2: This set was shared between the two teams but London edged a little bit further ahead winning the set 6–5 making the score 14-8.

Set 3: London C has been battle hardened throughout the season in the mindset to up the energy and take set 3, and they did it again winning the set 8-3 taking us to a great 22-11 lead.

Set 4: we won the set 6-5 but they got lucky in a few frames and it should have been a higher score for London.

London Seniors home to Hampshire

Inter County13.09.15 Hampshire (home)
London Seniors 11 Hampshire Seniors 9

A must win game for London eventually ended in success for our old timers with the final score flattering Hampshire a little.

The game began in confusion thanks to disruption on British Rail causing our opponents to arrive late in dribs and drabs, and frames being played out of sequence to allow Hampshire players to arrive without forfeiting frames.

After the first two sets London had fought back to all square after trailing from the outset. In set 3 London gunned it and won the first four frames to stretch away to a 9-5 lead.

Wins and hat tricks for Glen Tingley and Jerry Tickell in frames 16 and 17 respectively ensured London received the win bonus before the last 3 racks slipped away.

London were far from our best, but winning ugly is an important asset, if we are to go on and qualify for Yarmouth next March. This win keeps us firmly in the race.

Inter CountyOur third away match of the season and our third defeat, once again by the narrowest of margins, 23 v 21.

We started slowly, falling 3 v 1 behind and losing the first set 6 v 5, but worse was to come in the second set with Kent hammering us 8 v 3 for a 14 v 8 half time lead. They then won 3 out of the next 4 frames to lead 17 v 9 before London A finally started to get into the match, winning 6 of the next 7 frames to trail 18 v 15 going into the last set.

Two more wins then brought us within a frame of our opponents, and in truth we could have gone on to win the match, but it wasn't to be and Kent got over the line at 23 v 19 before London took the last 2 frames.

We were generally a little lacklustre (and occasionally unhelpful) with our support and at times poor shot selection and perhaps a lack of composure cost us crucial frames. Having said that 8 out of the 11 London players still won 2 out of their 4 frames but clear man of the match for the second time this season was Jordan O'Connor with another 4 out of 4 (8 out of 8 against Kent)!!

Despite this defeat Gt. Yarmouth qualification is still in our own hands but a home win against Hampshire next month is now absolutely essential.

Inter County09.08.15 Kent (away)
Kent Seniors 12 London Seniors 8

London suffered a second defeat of the season and this defeat could prove costly in the race to get to Yarmouth. In truth we were well beaten with many of our players not at our best and but for two reasonable middle sets the defeat could have been harsher.

We lost the first set 4-1 with only Pete Thomas registering a win. The second and third sets provided some hope with two wins for Glen Tingley and a win each for Jerry Tickell and Martin Storey, as Pete remained resolute and refused to be beaten all afternoon, meaning London fought back to trail by one frame at 8-7 down.

In the last set the London team all capitulate bar Pete and we ended up on the wrong side of a 12-8 mauling.
