2021 County Pool and Events Update

With the country now moving into the final stages of restrictions being fully lifted it is time to start thinking about getting pool back to normal, in the safest way for everyone, as quickly as possible. 

County Matches

Kent, as well as all counties in Region 7, will NOT be playing county pool this year. We have collectively decided to concentrate on our own areas to support our venues and increase players confidence in returning to competitive pool. We recognise that there will be those who are raring to go yet others who are feeling a little wary. 

Events for 2021

The Kent Committee are currently working on events at different venues in the county, for all sections, consisting of singles, doubles and triples competitions to suit everyone. The Kent Open will also be going ahead in 2021 with dates and details for all events being announced when it becomes clearer how government restrictions are heading.

EPA Registrations

We are hoping that most of our leagues will be looking to restart as soon as possible and we are pleased to announce that League Affiliations and EPA ID card memberships will be free for 2021 but you will still need to be registered to enter some events so please do not delay in doing so. Completed forms and any photos needed can be sent to

National Events

The EPA are quietly confident that the October Interleague and the November Ladies + C of C events will be going ahead. These obviously will have very relaxed qualification criteria due to the pandemic but we are hoping they will be well supported by Kent once again. 

All leagues should now have been contacted regarding Champion of Champions in November. If any league has not been contacted yet and wishes to compete please go to the EPA website tournaments page or contact

The KCPA committee look forward to seeing you all very soon!!!!

Inter County Championships and England Trials 2020

A great weekend in Yarmouth for Kent pool with our county represented in five categories

Inter County Championships

An early start for the u23 teams playing on Thursday with the Kent team making it it to the semi-finals but unfortunately losing out 11:5 to Warwickshire.

Playing late on Friday evening didn’t work out well for the Men’s B team who lost narrowly to Devon 23:20 in the Intercounty Finals. Moving into the first round of the cup they won their first but match but couldn’t keep the run going losing 23:17 to Cornwall in the Quarter Finals.

Our Men’s A team made a good start beating Northamptonshire, but fell foul of a strong Norfolk team who pushed them out of the main event and into the Cup Quarter Final.

Our best performances came from the Ladies and Junior teams. The Ladies didn’t get off to the best of starts with a loss to Devon in the first round of the main event but made it all the way to the final of the Cup losing out to Cheshire in the final 23:19.

The Junior team had a great tournament making it all the way to the final, but came up against last years champions who proved far too strong and secured their second successive title winning 23:8. Still a great result for our young team who have a lot of potential for the future.

England Trials

Kent was well represented across the England Trials with nine players across the various categories.

In the Men’s section A team players Mitch Standen, Sean Kirby and Adam Bassoo competed for one of the eight places available. Adam had a great day winning 6/6 to qualify first.

We also had three players int he Ladies section, Karen Riches, Jan Spinner and Mel Clements with Mel making it into the squad.

Another three in the u23s with Kian Ballard, Steve Ritchie and Jasper Simmonds with Jasper and Steve qualifying.

Well done to all those who qualified and good luck when representing your country.


County flags ready for Yarmouth

All of our teams at Yarmouth this weekend will literally be flying the flag for their county courtesy of the Kent Committee who have had these flags made.

Next County Match: Away to Berkshire 09/02/2020

So the new season is upon us ….. stormy ride tomorrow on the roads to Berkshire so please be careful everyone . Get there safely…

We had our most successful year ever last year so what are we going to do this year ? I’m hoping for more of the same … and perhaps the seniors will chip in this year . Between this game and the next we have the little matter of Yarmouth …. so tomorrow is a good opportunity to relight that competitive edge.

Last year we had many positive reports from other counties about our competitive yet respectful banter on and off the table . I expect more of the same in this area also as it’s important to maintain the standards we have set ourselves .

We have a number of new juniors so please make an effort to say hello and welcome them to the county set up . If there’s a break in play wander to the next tables and give your other sections a bit of support .

Our C team has a significant number of new players also so again make them welcome to help them relax into what is a new experience for some.

We have now purchased our Kent Flags for Yarmouth , one for each of the teams so we can light up the venues a bit from here on in across the Counties.

Let’s start the season like we ended last season with some winning form to take into Yarmouth.

All the very best
