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 registrations@kentcountypool.co.uk

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 secretary@kentcountypool.co.uk

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