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 on the usual 5 a-side team pool due to the coronavirus. All current competitions underway from 2019-20 are suspended but the League intend to play these out to a conclusion at the earliest possible date.
The League are staging the Triple 3 Series from 20th May through to 1st July and once the restrictions are removed altogether to allow multiple people to meet indoors, then the League will return to full functionality. Once more is known and dates confirmed by the Government, the League will publish the details going forward.
All other previous League statements remain valid and further announcements on these topics will be made at the appropriate times.
The Triple 3 Series
The start of the Triple 3 Series is planned for 20th May and should run for 7 weeks. The Triple 3 Series is designed to allow the return of small sided team pool in a competitive environment under the SLKPA umbrella, whilst some Covid-19 restrictions remain in place. First and foremost there are very few restrictions with the intention that teams/players just enjoy playing pool in a sporting environment whereby the result is secondary to the participation which is everything. Team squads can involve as many players as applicable, but only 3 players should attend any one match, adhering to the current safety guidelines. Player registrations aren't necessay.
