  Information/new event
by: FlyingScotsman, 13-11-2017 04:07 PM (#1)

As most of the reps will know I asked Michael to send out an e mail to everyone asking for the venues and address that each league plays in.

The response has not been great but I have to thank the leagues reps who took out the time to answer back to Michael.

These are ;
Ayr and Dis
Central Ayr
Doon Valley
East Fife
West Fife.

I am putting my final proposal for this new and I would say biggest pool event ever held in Scotland, even maybe in the UK, to the sponsor this week and would love to have all venues to show him, so I'm asking on here to all the leagues not mentioned above to e mail me a list of their venues/address or even if they cannot do that, to post them on this very page and that will give me more information to show him, how big the SPA really are.

Michael has updated the list now 25 and looking great, anymore leagues like to add their list of pubs and clubs to this?

Monklands should be on this list also.

I sent a list of our league venues with addresses to the SPA email address.

I am sure I got an acknowledgement of receipt of this also.

Just to let everyone know that only the league/players who give me this information will be allowed to play in this event.

Please do not let your players down as they will not like to miss out on this one , I can assure you of that.

The value of having a database of pool venues was appreciated a few years ago.
The process was begun but unfortunately not completed.

An online survey was also carried out at that same time to gain an insight into the make up of SPA affiliated leagues.... to which every league contributed.

If all Scottish pubs/clubs with pool tables were now to be listed (league affiliated or not) that would clearly help demonstrate to potential sponsors how popular the game remains.

Many pubs have of course closed over the past 20 years or so.... and Fife has been no exception.
Even so there are close to 100 pool venues in Fife on this map alone (and more could be added without doubt)....

A comprehensive address list plus a map of all of Scotland's pool venues shouldn't be that hard to put together.

Below are the results of an online survey completed by league reps during the 2013-14 league season.

The numbers of pool venues and players has probably increased since then.... not least because of pool halls/clubs with multiple tables which have opened up over the intervening years. And there may be more affiliated leagues these days?

It's surprising that surveys of this kind haven't been carried out and published regularly by the SPA as the benefits of having an understanding of the Association's membership are obvious.


2014 Survey Results ....

There are in total around 8,500 blackball players registered with leagues of which close to 5,700 play league pool on a weekly basis.

There are almost 750 SPA affiliated league teams in total playing regular blackball pool from the Shetland Isles to Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Minimum league team size varies from 4 to 8 players, although more players may of course turn up for a team to play on league nights (often Tuesday evenings).

Throughout Scotland 450 pubs and clubs provide venues for SPA affiliated league pool. Over 700 pool tables are available in total at these venues.

Of 42 pool leagues, 27 said that both singles and doubles matches were played on a league night. The remainder reported playing only singles matches.

From 8 to 16 frames are played during a league match, with the average number being 12 frames. Most leagues play out all scheduled frames in a match.

The average fee that pool teams pay for affiliation to their local league is 60, although this varies from 10 to 160 depending upon league.

To keep its membership informed close to 75% of leagues currently maintain a web presence of some kind and every affiliated league has been allocated a twitter account.

In 2014 there were 42 SPA affiliated pool leagues. This represented a 23% increase in the number of affiliations over the previous year.

Thank you all for posting on here or texting me by pm or Facebook, don't worry if you cannot give me the information I am asking, your league will still be involved but not in the ways the other ones who have given me the information will be.

Would appreciate it if you could post 2014 Super 15 Stats 2nd division...cant seem to find them.

Pm for David Duncan
