Just wondering if anyone here has any information on the old Nottingham bar billiards league that was around in the 1970s
It's complete news to us that there was one !
National records go back far enough to confirm that there were leagues in neighbouring counties Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire and represented these in the County competitions - but the same does not apply for Notts or Derbys.
We do know that in the 1960s and before the game was prevalent in the Midlands and extended up into Lancashire who had a table operator based in Darwen. I found an old newspaper extract the other day mentioning organised competition in Rugby, Warwicks. I also understand that the game was once very popular in Staffs.
So as regards bar billiards activity in Notts we're in your hands, really and anything you can come up with will be taken aboard with interest !
