As is usually the case, teams are dropping in and out as I prepare to get the new season underway. At the moment, I am looking for 1 8-Ball team for the 3rd, 4th or 5th division and 1 9-Ball team for the 5th or 6th division. I really want to avoid any bye weeks, so If anyone knows of a venue that might want to enter a team, please let me know.

While I have thoroughly enjoyed my prolonged vacation since the end of last season, the time has begun to begin the next season of the Bangkok Pool League. I have spoken to a number of people, and 72 teams from 37 venues are now all lined up to begin play.


The 2013 season will start on Monday, March 25th (8-BALL) and Wednesday, March 27th (9-BALL).


Both 8-Ball and 9-Ball will consist of 36 teams, with 6 divisions of 6 each. The Gold & Silver divisions will compete against each other, with all games counting in the standings. The same is true of the Red & Yellow divisions, and the Green & Blue divisions. Each team in the league will thus be competing home and away against 11 other teams that should be as competitively equal as possible. The season will be played over a 24 week period, ending on September 4th.


There have been no changes to either the playing rules or the respective formats.


Copies of the league roster, playing rules, contact list, 8-Ball & 9-Ball schedules and scoresheets will be given out at the Singles Tournament, and I will update everyone on the status of the Asia Expat Pool Challenge and a Bangkok Pool League event planned for later in the season. I expect at least one member of each team to be there so I can get the neccessary information into everyones hands in time for the start of the season.




The Singles Tournament will be held on Saturday, March 16th, at The BALL IN HAND on Sukhumvit Soi 4. The doors will be open for free play and practice at 11:00 AM, and the tournament is expected to get underway as close to 2:00 PM as possible. We will continue play throughout the day until we have a winner.


This Tournament is usually done at the end of a given season, but circumstances were such that I opted to hold off and instead use it to start this season. All of the trophies for last season will be given out at this event. They will be presented after the completion of a round of play, sometime between 6 and 7. All remaining league money will be spent on door prizes, and participating bars from last season are welcome to add to the list. As always, this is meant to be a social event, as much for simple enjoyment as competition. There will be a free food buffet provided by THE GAME, a new sponsor to the league.


This may well be the last Singles Tournament, so please make every effort to attend. The Bangkok Pool League is supposed to be a reflection of the venues that field teams in it and the people that play in it, so the tournament is also a good opportunity for people to speak to me about any aspect of it.
