Pattaya 8-Ball Pool League

Match Results, League Tables, Fixture Lists & News

Jomtien pool barThe Pattaya 8-ball pool league, a local amateur pool “pub league” for bars all around Pattaya, originally kicked off in the year 2000 and has now entered its 37th season, making it the longest-running pool league among half a dozen others in Pattaya.

The League currently consists of two divisions with 19 teams in total. Matches take place weekly every Monday; the match start time is 8.30 p.m.
The match format is 15 straight singles games of 8-ball pool, played in three sets of five games each. Participating teams must have a minimum of five and may have a maximum of 15 players. Three players in every set should be expats or visiting foreigners. League matches will be played according to the (old) English Pool Association (EPA) rules; with minor amendments for local preferences.

The basic requirement for joining the League is an “acceptable” venue with a standard 7, 8 or 9-ft pool or snooker table with a reasonable, well-maintained surface, and an adequate playing space around the table. Venues from all around Pattaya are invited to join the league in future seasons, or to replace a team that withdraws from the league in mid-season. For further details please contact us.

Pattaya Pool League – 2017 (2) Season

Pattaya pool league match nightFollowing our usual end-of-season meeting and the trophy presentation function the new 2017 (2) season will finally kick off on August 21st.
With a total of 24 entries, we will again have two divisions, both consisting of 12 teams each.
As in the previous season, trophies will be awarded to the top three teams in both divisions – with a normal promotion and relegation system to apply at the end of the season.
In addition to the regular league matches, all 24 teams from both divisions will also compete in a knockout and vase cup.
As in the previous season, Simon of Phimai Geordie will serve as the chairman/secretary of the League and the winning teams have to text him the result preferably straight after a match has been completed. Remember: The sooner he gets all your scores the sooner we can publish the standings on this page.

Here’s the most current league table and new fixture lists for both divisions:

  1. hi just trying to find out some factual information i currently have 1 8ball pool table at my restaurant in kalasin and would like to put 4 more 8×4 pool tables in and start a local pool league and run competitions and stuff and build a great league so we can travel to compete with other clubs i have looked on the net but cannot seem to find the thailand pool association as i would like to know about licenses and things i would require to do this properly any information you could help me with would be appreciated

    • Hi Steven, the pool leagues in Pattaya and Jomtien are basically just amateur pub leagues where mostly expats and long-stay tourists compete with each other, so there are no licences or anything involved and I don’t think you’d need the help of the Thai pool association or so to set up something similar in Kalasin (I’m quite sure a national pool association exists but I wouldn’t know either where to find it and would have to ask friends. Also, we’re mostly expats players here.) I know Kalasin a little bit myself as part of my wife’s family hails from there and we’ve got a little house in Kalasin city. I haven’t been there for ages now but next time would like to come and visit your place. I wouldn’t have thought there are actually enough expat pool players in Kalasin who might be interested in setting up a local league, so I’m very pleased to hear that. I’m running two pool leagues myself at the moment, one in Pattaya and one in Jomtien, with some teams actually playing at a relatively high level, so if you’re interested you’re welcome to pay us a visit one day and I’m sure we could organize a competition or something. On the other hand, I’m not too sure how many Pattaya-based players would be interested in a trip to Kalasin? As I noted, these are just amateur leagues and not involved with a national pool association or so. Anyway let’s see if we can organize something together in the future, ok?

  2. There’s only one score missing, that’s from week 4. Looks like Crazy Eddie’s beat Naughty Kangaroo but they can’t agree on who should text me the score?

      • Sorry Willy, but thanks to some changes Google has made to its viewer the old plugin I used to publish the standings (and with which it would have been easy to retrieve older sheets) doesn’t seem to work properly anymore. In fact, I noticed that problem only today. The new plugin doesn’t only make work harder for me but, it seems, you also need a Google account and have to be logged in to download a file. Not the best solution but I can’t find any better alternative at the moment. Which older sheets do you need? I might still have a copy on my computer. On a side note, I don’t really mind much, but it might help both of us SEO-wise if you modified the wording on your page a bit …

  3. hi I live in pattaya and Im looking for some people to play pool with. however Im a complete beginner so Im not sure if the league would be right for me.

    • Dear Tom, I’ve only today received the new fixtures from Simon who apparently had a problem sending them by email. The Week One results were also late simply because teams are apparently texting Simon their scores too late. By the way, this page is a free service for the League (I’m neither playing in it nor running it myself any longer) and I’ve just spent 15 unpaid minutes for updating all the stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to do it, but I can only update this page after Simon sends me the files. Thanks for your patience.

  4. I’ve moved to pattaya and would really like to join the pool league. Where would i start in being able to be on a team?

    I’d say I’m a pretty decent player.

    • I’d say just visit one of the bars that compete in the league, have a few games and see how you’re doing. Decent players are appreciated everywhere I guess.
