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

Billiards:-

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 match.

Darts:-

The darts league was wound up at the end of the 2009/10 sesason

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.

Snooker:-

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.
