Latest News and Information

Please note that sometimes there are result updates posted without any comment here, so do check the appropriate section for up-to-date information.


11 August - Final Individual results now in and draw for last eight on the Competitions pages.


10 August - Last 32 Individuals tonight, with one player from each of the eight tables going through to the next stage. Results online as received.

11.15pm - Results confirmed from five tables, possibly six. Others to follow when in.



3 August - Results for the Captains Prelims are now on the Competitions pages. The draw for the next stage in also there as well.


30 July - Registration forms for the forthcoming winter season are now available to download on this page. We will be collecting them after the Pre-AGM, Sunday 4th September at the Horse & Groom, time to be confirmed. Emails with both forms are going out to everyone we have an address for in an effort to try and get a few more teams back this season. We have a couple more teams already but could do with a few more, especially Sunday. Final league format will depend on numbers but the single division on Wednesday seems to have gone down well last time.

There is a preview copy online for the new results sheets. They will be split into Sunday and Wednesday versions and have been altered to suit the two different formats and to add in the requirement for a signature from each doubles player. Separate versions will be online after the AGM as there is a possibility of a format change to Wednesdays.


28 July - Our super-efficient Competitions Secretary has sent me the draw for the last 16 Pairs. These games will take place on Wednesday 17 August, details on the Competitions pages.


27 July - Results in for both Pairs Prelims, details on the Competitions pages.


23 July - Pre-AGM and registration will be on Sunday 4 September with the AGM a week later on Sunday 11 September, both meetings at the Horse & Groom, time to be confirmed. Registration forms will be available online soon. Registration is back to £25 per team plus £3 per player as before.


22 July - The Singles draw is now online. Matches to be played Wednesday 10 August.

The Pre-AGM and AGM dates will be announced soon but are almost certainly going to be on a Sunday owing to the Competitions on Wednesdays. Registration for the coming Winter season will be on one of the dates.


20 July - Updated Prelims for the Pairs and Captains have been sorted and are listed on the Competitions pages.

The Singles draw proper will be online as soon as it is received.


19 July - Owing to the removal of several entries for various competitions, the Singles Prelims due to take place tomorrow are now cancelled, being no longer necessary. Prelims for the Pairs and Captains are also on hold until the numbers are clarified.


10 July - Entries now kinda sorted by teams (just one given where a player plays Sunday and Wednesday). Prelims fixtures emailed out to as many participants as I could find email addresses for.


8 July - All the Prelim fixtures are now online. Any queries, please email the Competitions Secretary at competitions@exeterpool.com.


7 July - After the Competitions registration last night the entries lists are up in the competitions pages. The fixtures for the various prelims will follow as soon as possible.

Please note that, owing to time constraints, entries for the competitions are now closed.


27 June - Competitions are back! It has been decided that the Singles, Doubles and Captains competitions will be played this summer. All competitions are open to both Sunday and Wenesday players.

If you wish to enter any of the three competitions then you will need to register on the form (see Useful Forms downloads on this page). We will be collecting these on Wednesday 6 July at the Horse & Groom from 8.00pm. Payment will depend on whether or not you registered for the 2020 competitions (all listed on the Entries page in Competitions) in which case you will be deemed to have paid, otherwise the fees will apply.

Forms are being sent out to the captains/team contacts as well so hopefully we will get a reasonable response despite the short notice ( I was only informed of this last night myself).

16 June - Correct Plate winners on this page but forgot to swap the teams on the results pages, this has now been rectified.


15 June - Cup and Plate Finals tonight, plus a stray league match, to bring the season to it's official (near) completion. Just one more rearranged league match next week to bring the curtain down on what has been the closest league campaign for some years. As with the Sunday teams, nobody dropped out this year which is an encouraging sign. Hopefully everyone will be back in the Autumn to do it all again, along with some possible new teams.

Results will be online tonight as soon as they are received.

10.30pm - The results are in for the competitions with Heart of Oak A completing a League and Cup double and Heavitree Social B taking the Plate.

There is just the Wednesday Cup & Plate Finals to go, along with a couple of loose league fixtures and that will wrap up my twenty fifth year as "temporary" Fixtures Secretary.

We will be looking to get an idea of when we will be holding the AGM this year pretty soon. Hopefully we can increase the numbers back to pre-pandemic levels next season, especially on Sundays. You will all be notified as soon as we have a date.

16 January - Wednesday fixtures nearly sorted out, just need to arrange the two "missing" games from earlier in the season.
Sunday apparently fine as their fixtures have been tried and tested over the nearly twenty five years I have been doing this, unlike the sixteen team fixtures needed for the first time this season.

Sunday results and table updated as received tonight.

9.55pm - First result just in.

10.50pm - Second result in.


13 January - The rest of the results are in and the table updated.

Upon examination, the fixture problem only affects four teams for a total of six matches. Owing to an earlier error the Black Horse v Exeter Snooker Club fixture listed for 19 January is now incorrect as well as the Lucombe Oak v Wonford Inn fixture for 9 February. The fixtures for 30 March involving these four teams playing each other have been altered to show the correct opponents. The corresponding fixtures to those should have been played on 17 November so will need to be played at some point where possible. We will be in touch with these four teams to sort this problem out.

All other fixtures are correct.


12 January - No extra news tonight. Results and table online later.

Spoke too soon. A duplicated fixture was pointed out for next week so the fixture list for the rest of the season is temporarily suspended until all faults are detected and eliminated. Hopefully this can be sorted in the next day or so.
(UPDATE - not quite as bad as first feared but will confirm exactly what is happening before the weekend.)

The rest of the results online tonight as received.

10.00pm - First result in and table updated.

11.45pm - Result in for all matches now. Table updated.

10 October - Sunday and Wednesday fixtures now fully online.

The online Extra Signing notification form is now available via either the Sunday or Wednesday pages. It worked in testing, hope it works live!

Late News - As feared, Railway Club St Thomas are unable to commit to the long Sunday season and have, with regret, had to withdraw. A Bye has been inserted into the online fixtures.


8 October - Wednesday fixture lists have gone out to the captains and the first half of the season is online. The rest will follow as fast as I can type. Sunday is being finalised with a couple of things to iron out in the next few days.

Extra signings will be free for this season although we will still need to see the signing form to validate it. There will be an online notification system this season so you can let us know that there is a new signing. You can still just email a copy of the form instead if you wish. We will need the completed form dropped into the Horse & Groom so it can be collected on Saturdays as last time.


5 October - 16 teams confirmed for Wednesday with the Star Inn and the Lucombe Oak added to the other 14. First week's fixtures on the Wednesday page. Full fixtures will be online soon (or download from this page).

Sunday will be sorted as soon as possible.


3 October - A quick update. We still have eight for Sunday and fifteen confirmed for Wednesday, leaving one space so "first come, first served" for the last place as we have heard a couple of teams may be interested in taking the slot.

Fixtures will be up in the next day or two. The 16 team fixtures we had turned out to have faults mid season with some teams having too many home or away games on the trot. Just checking a new set for similar problems.


25 September - Black Horse officially added to the Wednesday list so fourteen teams confirmed. Wonford Social Club looking to add another team and the Star Inn should be getting back to us this weekend. No teams over the river in St Thomas on Wednesdays unless the Lucombe Oak get back to me soon.

If you haven't got a registration form to us yet, please email a photo of it (preferably completed) to fixtures.sec@exeterpool.com or info@exeterpool.com by close of play Wednesday. We will go with whover we have by then.

Sunday has eight teams so far. Again, any more teams please get back to us by Wednesday.


22 September - Another AGM over (probably in record time) and we are go for October. We presently have eight Sunday teams and thirteen Wednesday teams with a couple more very likely. A list of the teams is on the relevant day's page.

If you haven't put a team in yet, but still wish to, then please email us (info@exeterpool.com) so we can add you to the list. We will have to have a cut-off of this weekend so we have time to get the fixtures sorted though, so please hurry up if you are thinking of entering a team.


13 September - It certainly looks like a go for this winter, although with reduced numbers. A few venues are shut still for various reasons or have not got a pool table back, leaving us so far with a probable six teams for Sunday and eleven for Wednesday.

Registration will be at the AGM (Wednesday 22 September, 8pm @ Horse & Groom). We will take a note of your interest before the AGM so that we have the numbers to be able to decide how we are going about the season. Full registration will be after the AGM as usual as the outcome of some proposals will affect this.

Full lists of probable teams are on the page for the relevant day.

We have a volunteer for Competitions Secretary for the coming season. Nobody came forward for any other post so it looks like we are stuck with our jobs for another year!

A clarification: the reference to abandoning the season made in the 29 August news refers to the trophies, the records will show the achievements of that season as it was completed apart from the Sunday Cup/Plate which we hope to sort out. We are still aiming for free entry for the coming season. More details at the AGM.

Please note that our postal address has changed! Please address all postal correspondence: c/o The Horse & Groom, 50-52 Fore Street, Heavitree, Exeter EX1 2QL from now on.


6 September - We have so far added the Clifton Inn (poss-Wed), Railway Club St Thomas (def-Sun) and Bishop Blaize (Sun) if the team can find a venue with a table. Sunday looking reasonable but we need a lot more Wednesday interest.

Don't forget the Pre-AGM meeting at the Horse & Groom on Wednesday starting at 8pm.


31 August - Another team has expressed an interest - the old Allstars Z team, giving us half a dozen venues spread over the two playing days. Hopefully a few more of you will get back to us soon.


29 August - A more detailed explanation of what is going to happen in the coming few weeks is on the Sunday and Wednesday news pages (same info on both pages).

After our committee meeting last Thursday, plus the one email received so far, we have interest from the Heart of Oak, Heavitree Social Club, Horse & Groom, Stowey and the Wonford. It's a start but we hope to have a lot more by the Pre-AGM or we will have to consider whether to bother expending any more effort.


27 August - Registration forms are now available to download from this page along with the nomination form for any committee posts you may wish to take over. We will require a Competitions Secretary for the forthcoming season.


26 August - Dates for the diary: Pre-AGM, Wednesday 8 September at the Horse & Groom, 8pm. AGM, Wednesday 22 September also at the Horse & Groom, 8pm. Games to commence in mid October, finishing by June/July or sooner if all goes to plan.

Emails have gone out asking about the situaion in your venues regarding whether there is still a pool table there, or a team wanting to play either. If you could drop us a quick email regarding this then we would be grateful.

Registration forms will be available for download sometime on Friday (27th), back to us at the AGM probably. It will very likely be a free entry this year for teams who were registered for the 2019-2020 season as we are looking to abandon that season. This will be confirmed sometime soon.


22 August - If anyone is checking the website, this is just to say that the Committee are getting in touch with each other to start to sort something for the coming winter. We will be properly in touch as soon as we have worked out what we can do and will call an AGM to discuss this properly.

Apparently most pubs have reopened although some have restricted opening or early closing at present (so I am told, I have only been to a pub once since mid March 2020). As long as enough pubs are prepared to stay open long enough for games then we will run the league. If your venue is likely to want to enter a team then please email us (info@exeterpool.com) so we can gauge the demand.

Normal service should hopefully resume soon!


29 June - We await the 19th July and another step towards normality. It is obvious that we will probably not be able to get any organised pool going before what would be our normal summer break. Hopefully we can get the forthcoming winter season organised before too long. Will get things sorted when we have an AGM, when we can hold one, end of July with any luck!


3 June - Hopefully we will have good news on 14 June (NO!) and can think about restarting Pool after June 21. I haven't noticed any of our pubs boarded up or anything so, with any luck, everywhere should be back in action. Will probably be best to hold our AGM first and sort out how we are going to proceed, especially with the Sunday Cup and Plate competitions still to finish.


15 April - As we slowly emerge from lockdown it is still proving almost impossible to find any information about when anything like pool can resume in pubs. Best guess is still some time after 21 June, assuming infections don't spike again and that pubs can use their "space" for recreation rather than safety purposes.


28 March - Still no news of when we can play again as yet, but at least things are improving bit by bit. It is looking like nothing much will be happening before 21 June unless we either play outdoors or in something big like a sports hall but with no booze!

Hopefully we can get an AGM in sooner rather than later so we can make some decisions for the coming season, and maybe even get the Competitions played.


14 February 2021 - A very belated Happy New Year to anyone reading this.

As we approach the anniversary of everything grinding to a halt, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. With any luck we may be able to squeeze in something before the summer, even if it is only finishing last season! Still hoping we haven't lost any venues because of all this.

Keep safe and wait for your jab so we can get back to normal, whatever that is now.
