The Winter edition of the York Bar Billiards League will be getting underway next week. Tonight, the University took on the Waggon and Horses in a friendly match, which was won by the newcomers 4-3. A report will be up on our website soon, and the fixtures for the next season are already there.

Just to keep everyone up-to-date on York news, the new 7 team winter 2014 season starts tonight with an old firm clash between the Golden Ball and the Phoenix.
The new table that we bought last week is currently housed in the Fulford Arms, where Chris the landlord is now hoarding three tables! Could this be a record for the most bar billiards tables in a single pub in the country?! If I can persuade him to part with one of them in the next few months we'll most probably be able to find another pub to buy it, so we should have at least one extra team for the summer 2015 season.
The Gillygate is currently listed on the UK bar billiards map as a non-league pub, but they still haven't bought a table (despite much cajoling!) so maybe they should be taken down for now.
God save tudor houses, antique tables and billiards
Well the season's come a long way since we last posted an update! We're now over half-way through the Winter league, and it's all very tense (unless you're in the Uni team!). Here's the table as we stand at the moment, with slightly under two months to go!
