8 Ball Pool Phuket Friendship League

Due to the Governor of Phukets order, made on 23rd March, to keep all bars closed, in an effort to slow the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19, both the Tuesday & Thursday competitions are postponed until further notice.

We will appraise you here, of any further changes as we are made aware of them.

8 Ball Pool Phuket Friendship League

Formed in January 2016 by friends from a number of bars in the south of Phuket the “8 Ball Pool Phuket Friendship League” represented a new start for 8 ball pool in the area. The object of this new league is to allow friends to meet in each other’s bars for a social evening which includes a pool match.

The original Phuket pool league was formed to enable bars to boost their low season income by having people, who may not otherwise visit their bar, come and play a friendly pool match. The pool was, although well fought, never that important and the focus was far from being ultra-competitive.

Unfortunately, over the years, certain elements crept into the fabric of the preceding leagues which totally disregarded the, so important, social side of the Leagues purpose. They have focused totally on competition and disregarded the League’s true intent and purpose. As a result, previous leagues have been folded and the new 8 Ball Pool Phuket Friendship League, focusing on friends enjoying each others company over a few drinks in bars they may not otherwise visit, has been formed. Yes the pool is an important element and nobody goes to the table with the intention of losing, but the main focus is to Have A Good Time With Friends.

Our Thursday night league competition is currently drawn from five teams located in Karon & Kata and five from Rawai.

The Tuesday night league competition is local to bars only from Kata, Karon & Chalong.

The playing rules for both league competitions are identical although the eligibility rules are slightly different. The rules for both competitions are shown on this site. The purpose of both competitions is identical; to have a bit of fun, to meet new people over a few beers, and to play a competitive pool match, but not too seriously.

If you have any questions or queries about the League contact one of the League Admins shown at the foot of this list.
