About Us

Welcome to the website of the DMC Leisure Saffron Walden & District Snooker League.

The 2021/22 season is the 60th Season of the league and is a testament to the longevity, 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 player’s performance during the period.

We currently have a total of 14 teams competing for the Three Player and the Four Player titles.  The teams are represented by 8 league venues comprising of approximately 150 players of all ages and abilities.

The clubs in the league are spread far and wide and include the Saffron Walden Snooker Club, JP’s Snooker & Pool Club, Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club, Stansted Social Club, Whittlesford Social Club, The Dunmow Club, Takeley Sports and Social Club, Widdington Village Hall.

President’s Cup (one-day singles handicapped tournament)
Memorial Cup (one-day singles handicapped tournament)
