Opening hours: See website for details - September to May each year
Currently we have two different league formats, the Three Player Division and the Four Player Division. In the Three Player Division, teams consist of three players all player two frames each per match to a set order. Similarly, in the Four Player Division, four players from each team play one frame each per match again to a predetermined order prior to the match commencing. In order that players of a different standard can compete on an equal basis, all players are handicapped according to their ability and handicaps are altered twice a season depending on the players performance during the period.
As at the 2013/14 Season, there were 14 teams competing for the Three Player title and 8 teams battling it out for the Four Player title. The teams are represented by 10 different clubs comprising of approximately 150 players.
The clubs in the league are spread far and wide and include the Saffron Walden Snooker Club, Whittlesford Social Club, Sawston Social Club, Newport Club, Stansted Social Club, Dunmow Club, Takeley Sports and Social Club, Widdington Village Hall, Bishop’s Stortford Social Club and Bishop’s Stortford Royal British Legion Club.

President’s Cup (one day singles tournament)
Memorial Cup (one day team event)
