RIP Terry Mitchell
Terry Mitchell

The League lost one of our own recently. Terry was a respected and knowledgeable player, with various Bellegrove teams and notably managed Allstars to their first ever League Title in 2019. Terry's funeral will be on Wednesday 19th August and the League are organising a floral tribute. Anyone that would like to donate can see the link on the League's Facebook page.

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.
News from the Government this week seems to imply that we are even further away from a restart than we had hoped. Unless there is a drastic change in the current policies then the League’s deadline of 13th August to start a summer league will be missed, reverting to a League Cup only summer season.
The League Committee will be meeting on Sunday 2nd August and amongst other matters will be planning the coming 2020-21 winter season. There are still a handful of teams still to confirm or not whether they wish to participate in the winter season. Teams captains please contact the League urgently to express your wish (if you haven’t already done so).
Hopefully in the coming weeks, the weekly update will be a little more positive.
All other previous League statements remain valid and further announcements on these topics will be made at the appropriate times.
