Background

The Chalk Farm Pool League (CFPL) was established in 1978 and the league has been thriving ever since. The League comprises of teams who play within a three mile catchment of Chalk Farm tube station. Despite the recent decline of venues with pool tables the League is as strong as ever and has Three Divisions.

With every successful league it’s all about the players or ‘members’ the CFPL has something to offer everybody from the occasional pub player to England International’s. Matches take place on Monday nights from 8.30pm and teams consist of a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve players, the match format is four singles three doubles and two singles best of nine frames.

We organise a number of Competitions throughout the Season and this year we had over 100 entries for our singles, as well as our version of the FA Cup- The Liam Tarrant 'knock out' trophy we host an end of season Divisional Cup based on Handicap's. There are also tournaments for the over 50s ( 'Bill o' Connor' seniors Cup) as well as Doubles and new last year a tournament for the Leagues ladies. There's even a Governors/Managers Shield so the owners feel part of the league and the team Captains play in their own knockout Tournament. 

We are currently recruiting new teams for next season which will starts in September 2017. Please contact a Committee member if you would like more information. It is essential to take part in a number of  friendly trial games  in order to establish if your team is suited to the League,  please contact

Turning the tide - Peckwater Tenants Association fight on

    PECKWATER Tenant’s Association kept their faint hopes alive of avoiding the drop on Monday night when they beat relegation rivals King’s Cross Invaders to pocket a timely first win of the season in Division One of the Chalk Farm Pool League. 

    Doubles pairing Shannon Ray and Jane Havell struck at a crucial time at Peckwater’s home table in Kentish Town, with Ray potting the remaining three balls before sinking the black into the centre of the middle pocket. 

    Keith Fletcher then captured the all important final frame, albeit with a huge slice of luck as the Invaders’ player cannoned his ball into the black, accidentally potting it and handing Peckwater a 5-4 victory. 

    Peckwater remain bottom of the Division One table, but having reduced the gap between themselves and rivals King’s Cross Invaders by four points they will be confident that they can now hunt down the wins needed to stay in the top flight. 

    Playboys a-go-go! Peckwater book Tarrant cup spot

      PECKWATER Playboys booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Chalk Farm Pool League Liam Tarrant Cup on Monday night with a great win over Cock Tavern. 

      Doubles pairing Paul Smith and Charlie Wood added the finishing touches to a rousing team display as the Kentish Town-based side (pictured above) chalked up a resounding 5-1 victory. 

      Cock Tavern’s Michael Johnson  managed to leave his mark on the game, however, after putting in arguably the best individual display of the night to pot a total clearance. 

      Elsewhere, there was also big win for Sir Robert Peel, who beat Peckwater TA 5-0.

      King’s Cross Hurricanes and Cousins Elite ran out 5-1 victors in their respective matches against Boston Old Skool and Regent’s Park TA. DOB Dynamos, King’s Cross Hawks, King’s Cross Invaders and Golden Lion also all progressed.
