The South London & Kent Pool Alliance (or SLKPA) is an English 8 ball pool league for teams in the SE London and NW Kent area of 5 or more members. The league was formed in 2005 and is contested on Thursday evenings and matches consist of 15 frames of "World Rules" pool, commencing at 8pm. Our league caters for pool players of all standards/creeds/ages/sexes and has multi divisions. In addition to the main league the SLKPA also operate a reserve/experimental league for teams of 3 or more players who are new to "World Rules" or just wish to sample the SLKPA without committing to a whole season. The SLKPA is affiliated to Greater London County Pool Association, which is under the umbrella of the English Pool Association. We have singles and pairs competitions regularly, Interleague teams, as well as a host of other facilities to help you enjoy your pool, and all these are available to our registered players. The process of managing a team in the SLKPA is simplified, where all administration can be attended to remotely, negating the need to attend endless league meetings. Should you wish to meet us, the League Committee convene usually on the first Sunday of each month 7pm at Bellegrove Social Club, Welling, Kent. DA16 3QD. Our aim is to remain as the number one pool league in this area, and our motto is "a pool league for pool players first and foremost."

The SLKPA is still experiencing a temporarily close down due to the coronavirus. All current competitions are suspended but the League intend to play these out to a conclusion at the earliest possible date. The 2019-20 Singles is now postponed until such time as pool is possible, hopefully sometime in the summer 2020. It will be staged as a solitary day event (as a one off) to dovetail into the SLKPA calendar The Summer 2020 season is still being prepared for the start date of 7th May, but the League are now considering other options should this not be possible. Alternative start dates and formats are being considered but all of these options will be driven by the virus and the time declared when it’s safe for normality to resume. Until then the League can only make provisional plans. As stated previously, the League intend to get team pool going again at the earliest opportunity once it’s safe to do so.
Trophies won in the 2019-20 season cannot be presented on time, again due to the virus. These will be attended to at the earliest opportunity once the all clear is declared.
Further announcements on these topics will be made at the appropriate times.
