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.

Trophy glory for the green baize heroes

Published: 4 August, 2016

THERE were cheers and beers aplenty as top potters from Slattery’s Squatters celebrated pocketing silverware in the Chalk Farm Pool League. 

The triumphant team, who play their home games at Slattery’s pub in Camden Road, barely had a hand free to raise a pint glass as they held up the League Two Divisional Cup at a glitzy awards gala held at the Boston Arms in Tufnell Park. 

League chairman Shaun Pollard said: “We’ll be taking to the tables again in September and we’re always looking for new teams from across Camden and Islington to join the league, and help make it the biggest and the best in north London.”

    Among the individuals who chalked up success was Peel’s Tony Bradbery, who won the Singles Championship, and Boston Rimmers star Des Murphy, who ended the season as the top-ranked senior. 

    Division Two champions Peckwater Tenants Association

    Having won more frames than anyone else this season, pocket rockets Chris Heim from Peel, and Peckwater’s Dean Morgan walked away with the Hotshot Awards for Division One and Division Two respectively. 

    Chairman Shaun Pollard said he was very excited about the coming season, revealing potential plans to add a third division to the Chalk Farm Pool League for the first time in more than three decades. 

    “Despite venues changing and the demise of pubs across the country, especially ones boasting pool tables, the game in Camden and Islington seems to be thriving,” he said.

    “Our league is attracting new audiences and new clubs, and we’re particularly pleased with the number of ladies who have taken up the sport. Last season was the most competitive in some time. With a host of new teams and talent already signed up thanks to the coverage in the New Journal, I’m confident the coming campaign will be the best one yet.”
