Check for team changes in your Division

Many of you may have heard about the closing of the Three Crowns next Sunday. While there is still work going on in the background by the Crowns committee and various groups, the future is very grim.
I am sure that everyone out there would like to share in the thanks that we give to Ash, the Bird family, and before that, to Ben, for many many years of support that they have given to not just the BPL, but to pool in general, including the various County teams. We also wish Ash the best of luck in whatever she chooses to do next.

So what about our pool league? Nothing really changes for the foreseeable future. Of course we have lost our major sponsor, but we do have other irons in the fire, but are eager not to rush into anything too quickly.
Regulars at our AGM's have always noticed that when we come to the finance report, there is a balance of money not yet allocated. This is a reserve account where a small amount of money is put each year, especially for times like this. Basically we are self sufficient for the next 2-3 years, maybe longer.

So we head into a new season which begins on Wednesday October 11, with the Sunday league beginning on the 15th. Fixtures can be collected at Thursday's league meeting at the Queens Head, Eastville, between 7-8.30pm.

In an attempt to reduce our overheads, we have introduced an Email Information Service to provide members with monthly updates.
To help reduce costs, we would like members to subscribe to this Service. The email attachment will be identical to the book that team Captains/Secretaries have previously received by post, and will be available to all league members, not just Captains/Secretaries.
We fully understand that not everyone has access to the internet and email, so for those few teams the book will still be available by post.
Apart from the cost reduction, other advantages will be that the book will be available just a few days after the monthly league meeting, rather than the 11 days it now takes. Any mistakes that arise can be instantly corrected by sending a revised book. Any other information can be easily sent, eg, reminders of important dates such as league meetings and AGM's.
To add your name to the Service, simply send an email to bristolpoolleague(at)
Please include the word “Pool” in the subject line, and in the message box leave your name, team name(s), and whether you are Captain or Secretary of your team, or that you are just a playing member of your team(s). You will receive an email shortly after to confirm your inclusion in the Service.
