ABOUT THE ALBY LEAGUE
The Alby billiards league was formed in 1932 with
darts being added in 1935. The ever increasing popularity of snooker
led to its inclusion in the 1970's.
The league has a catchment area for teams of approximately 10 miles
radius of Alby
The billiards league currently consists of 5 teams, each team
having between three and six players. Games are of 40 minutes
duration or 150 up (whichever comes first) with handicaps, One
point is awarded for every game won, and an extra point is awarded
to the team with the highest aggregate score at the end of the
The darts league was wound up at the end of the 2009/10
The fixtures for the darts league are identical to the billiards,
therefore any club wishing to play in the billiards league
must also partake in the darts league, and vice versa. Darts
teams consist of a minimum of six players and a maximum of
eight. Teams play four games of singles and two doubles, all
games are best of three legs 501 up, straight start and double
finish. Although the billiards and darts share the same fixtures
they are still different competitions.
At it's peak in the mid 1980's the snooker league consisted
of 48 teams, split into 4 divisions of 12 teams, currently there
are 7 teams in 1 division. teams consist of six players each playing
one frame each, with each frame won scoring two points for the
team. Any team short of players on the night can draw two team
members to play another frame, should they win the team will only
gain one point instead of two.
