As part of the AGM, we are inviting leagues within Lancashire to attend and become members of the Association, along with membership to the English Pool Association. As part of this, your leagues will also be able to submit entries for the 2018 Lancashire Interleague competitions for both Men and Ladies.
Membership and Interleague Registrations
2018 continued Mens interleague for many years with 16 teams spread over 2 divisions and the competition has been close.
In addition, the Lancashire Ladies interleague is a driving force for ladies pool development within the English Pool Association with 6 teams playing from across Lancashire in a relaxed, friendly league.
The Mens league is played over a format of 2 groups of 9 Singles, while the ladies play 2 groups of 7 Singles.
