International Rules were adopted by the English Pool Association on 1st January 2023 as the playing rules for use in all nationally organised events.

The Rules page on the EPA website contains many documents to help explain the new ruleset, including a quick start guide, useful pictures, a booklet and A3 poster etc.

Players who have any queries regarding these rule changes should contact the League Secretary for clarification.

summer league knockout finals



Played Sunday 10th September 2023

Venue - Kennys Sportsbar


Kennys Bear 1 - 4 THE KENNYS CUE


The Kennys Cue are the Summer League Champions. Their last Final success was back in 2016 and were runners up in the last two finals. 

Kennys Bear unfortunately had to award a frame but still had chances in a close fought final. 

Gav Davies (Bear) got off to a good start but it was Nicky Hodgkinson (Cue) who had the early opportunities to take the frame. A missed long red proved costly as Davies cleared well with composure to make it 1-0 to the Bear. 

Mike Barker (Cue) was awarded the 2nd frame to make the scores 1-1. 

Dave Barker (Cue) was pitted against Andy Rawlinson (Bear) and after a dry break, Dave Barker seized the opportunity and Rawlinson never had a chance and after missed attempt at playing a snooker, it was Barker who took his chance and put the Cue men 2-1 up.

Martin Priestley (Cue) was next up and faced the challenge of Jim Simpson (Bear). The frame was a tight tussle knowing the importance on where the match was going. Simpson tried to get a hold but a missed chance let Priestley in and after a nervous exchange, it was Priestley who claimed the win to make it 3-1 to the Cue men. 

Dave Whitfield (capt) was then drawn against Rawlinson in the 5th frame. Rawlinson dry breaked and after a slow start Whitfield played a couple good snookers. However an in-off let Rawlinson back in but he unfortunately snookered himself on his last red. Whitfield got the two shots and duly seized the chance to clear up and claim the winning frame to make it 4-1 to the Cue men. 

Thank you to Kennys Sportsbar for hosting the final and thank you to Kev Brown on referring. 




Played Sunday 10th September 2023

Venue - Waggon & Horses


Holmcroft 2-4 OXLEATHERS A


Oxleathers A became the Summer Plate Champions after a narrow 4-2 win over the Holmcroft.

Ian Nunn pulled one back with a win over Roper to trail by one frame. However Kev Lewis had different ideas as he got he frame needed to secure the Plate with a win over Dan Nunn.

Winter League 2022/23 Review


Division ONE

Congratulations to Institute TTFD on becoming League Champions for a 4th year in a row.

However, in what proved to be a close run contest, it was down to the last game of the season. A 4-4 draw at home to Waggon & Horses was enough to secure the league title by 2 points over The Kennys Cue who pushed them all the way. The Kenny’s Cue won their last match 5-3 which proved to leave them short. 

Victorious for the Institute throughout the campaign was Rob Wharne (capt), Jake Cooper, Gaz Baker & Ian Lewis.

Representing the Cue men was Dave Whitfield (capt), Martin Preistley, Nicky Hodgkinson, Mike & Dave Barker.

At the other end of the table Oxleathers A fete was already confirmed, however it proved to be last day drama for both Kennys Tap and Kennys Rebels who both had to win well. It was the Rebels 7-1 win that was enough to secure division One status.

Rob Wharne (Institute TTFD) had the most wins with 33 out of 36 matches. 

Mark Billingsley (Institute 8’s) & Gav Davies (Kennys Bear) had the most 8 balls with 5 each.


Division TWO

Congratulations to Kennys Underdogs on winning Division Two and gaining promotion to the 1st Division. The title was secured a couple of weeks prior and won comfortably by 29 points. The underdogs were represented by Jamie Wright (capt), Sean Casey, Aaron & Bailey Wright. 

The other promotion place proved to be a lot closer with the Holmcroft securing the runners up spot by one point over the Joiners Arms. Holmcroft’s 4-4 draw with the Underdogs proved enough as the Joiners could only manage a 5-3 win in their last game. 

The Holmcroft were represented throughout the season by Ian Nunn (capt), Dan Nunn, Lee Sturgess, Paul Lazenby & Steve Brookes. 

The relegation battle was similar to the 1st div. Staffs Bull fete was already confirmed, however Waggon & Horse B were denied 2nd div status by the slender margin of least draws as they were tied on points with Kennys Killers. Only 2 points separated 4 teams for the final relegation spot. 

Simon Pye (Joiners Arms) had the most wins with 28 out of 34 matches.

Bailey Wright (Underdogs) & Brendon Ruttledge (Joiners) had the most 8 balls with 2 each. 


Division THREE

Staffs Bully Bull secured the Division three title a couple of weeks ago after dominating the season throughout. They won by a healthy 14 points over their nearest challengers, the Kennys 8’s. Kennys 8’s 4-4 draw with Princess Royal B in their final game was enough to secure promotion. 3rd place Kennys Shadows pushed them but fell away towards the end. 

Representing the Bully Bull were Daz Meeley (capt), Chris Gray, Neil McKay, Lynda Simpson and Clive Pritchard.

Representing the Kennys 8’s were Jonathon Lowe (capt), Tom Vernon, Clair Maslin & Andy Jones. 

Jonathon Lowe (Kennys 8’s) had the most wins with 27 from 32 matches. 

D Batkin (Bear), D Meeley (Bull), K Plimmer (Joiners A) & T Anderson (Allsorts) all had 1 x 8 ball.

Report - in a the battle of the Institute, it was a remarkable comeback from 3-0 down to give Cooper & Lightfoot the Scotch Doubles Title. Rob & Malcom Wharne were looking good for the title after opening up a healthy lead but the experience and good potting skills came good for the former. The Father and Son pairing will feel disappointed but great credit to the latter on not giving up and finishing the job

In the semi finals, Cooper and Lightfoot made light work in no time, running out 3-0 winners Over the experienced pairing of Brown & Rawlinson. However the Wharne’s were made to work hard for their 3-2 win over Jenkinson & Haidarovic, where Malcolm Wharne pulled a magical black to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Report- Dave Whitfield and Rob Wharne defended their doubles crown with a closely fought 4-2 win over Alan Sim & Gav Davies. Whitfield & Wharne opened up a 2-0 advantage but were then pegged back to 2–2 with some impressive pool play. However Wharne regained the initiative with an 8 ball clearance in frame 5 and when it looked like going to a decider, an uncharacteristic miss by Davies let Whitfield in and he took the chance to claim the Normal Doubles title. 

In the semi Finals Sim & Davies saw off the strong challenge of Andy Pearcey & Brendon Ruttledge with a 3-1 win. However, Whitfield & Wharne were pushed all the way by Wayne & Danny Batkin winning 3-2, where really the Batkin’s will rue their missed chance in the final frame to cause a shock result.

Sep 2022
doubles knockouts postponement

 On behalf of the Stafford Sunday Pool League it has been decided that this weekends Normal Double Knockout Competition has been postponed. 

The rescheduled date is now set for Sunday 2nd October 2022. 

This date was originally for the quarter Finals of the Normal Doubles. 

This means that the normal Doubles Finals night (to be played Sunday 23/10/22) will consist of Quarter Finals, semi Finals and Final with a view for 7pm start.

I believe it’s the right and proper thing to do out of respect for the funeral of the Queen on the bank Holiday Monday. 

Normal service will resume the following Sunday with rounds 3 and 4 of the singles knockout and also the 1st and 2nd rounds of the plate competition. The draws for both those competitions will be out later this week.

Payment for the entries can be sorted as soon as the winter league commences

coronavirus covid-19

Important announcement

Coronavirus COVID-19

It is with regret we announce that as from now (19 March 2020), the League Committee has unanimously agreed that the Stafford Sunday Pool League will be Suspended for the foreseeable future

Due to the current climate and concerns over the health and well-being, this decision is the correct and safest option.

As EPA affiliated members, all EPA events are suspended until the 30th April.

However we will monitor this situation on a weekly basis and hopefully will get back to playing the game we all love.

Thank you to all members for their patience and we wish everyone good health during what is a very challenging and testing time.

We will be looking at playing the cancelled matches by extending the Winter League season by FOUR weeks. 

This will probably mean that the Summer League will be cancelled. The singles and doubles competitions will be played after the completion of the Winter League. More information will follow over the coming weeks
