Inter-League

The Inter-League Format is set by the national body, the English Pool Association, but is run at local level by the affiliated Counties.


Winners of the County Inter-League earn the right to represent the County at the national finals, normally held at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. Counties are normally award two-three spaces, so the second and third place teams may also be able to attend.

There are two men's events, the Interleague and the KO Cup, and the finals are normally in April and October respectively. The ladies compete in the Ladies KO cup in October.

Affiliated leagues are allowed to enter the County Interleague, subject to local rules, and teams are made up of nine players, playing either 18 or 27 frames.

The Interleague competition is normally run over the whole season on a home and away basis, but the KO Cup is on a single day.

For more information please contact your League via your County Secretary on the Committee Contacts page.
