Welcome to the website of the DMC Leisure Saffron Walden & District Snooker League.
The 2011/12 Season was the 50th Season of the league and is testament to the strength and popularity of the league.
Currently we have two different league formats, the Three Player Division and the Four Player Division. In the Three Player Division, teams consist of three players who all play two frames each per match to a set order. Similarly, in the Four Player Division, four players from each team play one frame each per match again to a predetermined order prior to the match commencing. In order that players of a different standard can compete on an equal basis, all players are handicapped according to their ability and handicaps are altered twice a season depending on the players performance during the period.
As at the 2016/17 Season, there are 16 teams competing for the Three Player title and 7 teams battling it out for the Four Player title. The teams are represented by 10 different clubs comprising of approximately 160 players of all ages and abilities.
The clubs in the league are spread far and wide and include the Saffron Walden Snooker Club, Whittlesford Social Club, Sawston Social Club, Newport Club, Burnt Mill Snooker & Social Club, Dunmow Club, Takeley Sports and Social Club, Widdington Village Hall, Birchanger Sports and Social Club, Bishop’s Stortford Social Club and Bishop’s Stortford Royal British Legion Club.
