Welcome to the NUSC(L) pool team page. We play once or twice a month usually between November & June in Division One of the APFSCIL Pool League. So far this season, we have played 3 games and are one of only three unbeaten teams in the league. We won our last match 9-0 against a combined Plymouth/Barrow team. Currently the league is suspended due to Covid-19 - we will update this page as soon as it is running again. The current top 5 of the league are below.
Each match consists of 6 singles and 3 doubles. The evenings are ultimately for fun, open to all abilities & we try to give everyone attending a game if they want one. Some members come along just to cheer us on. Food is often provided by the home team at 'half time'.
All matches are played on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in pubs in Central London, and our home league matches are at: The Dolphin, 47 Tonbridge Street, London, WC1H 9DW. Nearest stations: Kings Cross/St Pancras. We also play in the Clydie Weekes knockout cup, usually from August to October. Home cup matches are at: The Southwark Brewery, 44-46 Druid St London SE1 2EZ. Nearest stations: London Bridge/Tower Hill.
After not winning anything for many years, we have had a very successful decade at pool with 5 league titles since 2012 and 4 cup victories. After back-to-back league titles, in 2018/19 we finished third in the league but still managed to get a trophy by winning the 2019 knockout cup. We stopped doing individual match reports a couple of years ago as we replaced them with summaries in the Magpie but the NUSC(L) Pool Forum gives members-only access to these archives.
If you are interested in playing, or just fancy coming along to support the team, please email our league captain, Martin Clubb at firstname.lastname@example.org or Trev Noronha at email@example.com, our league vice-captain and knockout cup captain.
