Reigate & Redhill Pool League

 

 

 

League History

The Reigate and Redhill District Pool League was started in 1984 by Ray Newman (Chairman), Colin Batt (Treasurer), and Ted McCarthy (Secretary).

In the first year the league consisted of 16 teams split into 2 divisions. These included teams such as Reigate Ex-Service Club, Merstham Social Club, Bletchingley Village Club, Lower Kingswood Social Club, East Surrey Hospital Club, The Old Oak, The Panther, The Iron Horse, The White Hart, and the White Lion. Many of which still play in the league today.

The league was started without funding and the trophies presented at the first presentation night by the Secretary of the Surrey Pool Association  were funded by donations from the Pub and Club landlords, and Committees.

With the continued support from its venues, members, and individuals giving up time and enthusiasm on the committee the Regiate and Redhill District Pool League has grown to up to 40 teams.
