The Chalk Farm Pool League (CFPL) was established in 1978 and the league has been thriving ever since. The League comprises of teams who play within a three mile catchment of Chalk Farm tube station. Despite the recent decline of venues with pool tables the League is as strong as ever and has Two Divisions with twelve teams in each. With every successful league it’s all about the players or ‘members’ the CFPL has something to offer everybody from the occasional pub player to England International’s. Matches take place on Monday nights from 8.30pm and teams consist of a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve players, the match format is four singles three doubles and two singles best of nine frames. We are currently recruiting new teams for next season which will start in September 2016. Please contact a Committee member if you would like to know more or to arrange a friendly trial game.

Hurricanes warning! Elite head for final day of destiny

    Cousins Elite

    COUSINS Elite booked their place in the final of the Chalk Farm Pool League’s Liam Tarrant Cup on Monday with a clinical victory over rivals Boston Old Skool. 

    The Holloway-based side charged to a convincing 5-1 victory at a packed Peckwater Estate Tenants Association Hall in Kentish Town. 

    Cousins will now be looking to add the Liam Tarrant Cup to the League One Divisional Cup that they won last season when they face opponents King’s Cross Hurricanes in the final in June. 

    The Hurricanes will take some stopping, however, having ended their barnstorming season as Division One runners-up, finishing just six points behind champions Sir Robert Peel.

    Their semi-final showdown was a much tighter affair, as they squeezed past Islington’s Green Man 5-3 in a very lively encounter at the Sir Robert Peel pub in Queen’s Crescent. 

    • FORMER chairman of the Chalk Farm Pool League Dave Hempstead swapped the green baize for a pair of runners on Sunday to take part in the London Marathon. 

    Dave, who lives in Kentish Town, finished in six hours, 29:40 minutes, raising more than £800 for Great Ormond Street Hospital for children.

      CHAMPIONS Sir Robert Peel had the last laugh as they won the Chalk Farm Pool League on Monday night for the fifth year in a row.  

      With King’s Cross Hurricanes and the Boston Arms both enjoying prolonged spells at the top of the table, many had written off Peel’s chances of pocketing the Division One title this season. 

      The Peel potters had other ideas, however, and quietly set about proving their doubters wrong. 

      In the end they needed just three frames from the final match against Islington-based side Green Man on Monday to retain their crown. 

      They coasted to their target as they wrapped up a 5-4 victory, with Neil Faux (pictured above, in front, in the check shirt) pocketing the vital frame. 

      There were also celebrations for the players from Peckwater Tenants Association, who can look forward to playing Peel next season. 

      They were crowned Division Two champions, and with it, won promotion into the top flight.
