Bognor Regis Pool League is in its 28th year and the new season begins tooday (Oct 5).

The season will comprise 23 teams from 14 different venues, stretching from Elmer to Pagham.

The main goal for us running the league is to keep the 300-plus players that we have in the league happy and to bring business into the community by making sure that the local pubs have a busy and fun night every Thursday.

There will be two divisons, a divisional cup for each division and a league cup.

As well as the league, there will be singles, doubles, three-man and women’s competitions which will take place throughout the season and on seperate days to help with pub revenue.

Chairman Kane Mann, who has led the league for five years, said: “The main goal for us running the league is to keep the 300-plus players that we have in the league happy and to bring business into the community by making sure that the local pubs have a busy and fun night every Thursday.”
