It is with the deepest regret

that we must announce here the passing of Alan Benton who left us on 20th February 2021 in hospital - thankfully, in these troubled times, he was surrounded by his family.

Alan, to all that interacted with him, knew he was a light that shone brightly in the pool world, to his family and friends from all five continents, this announcement is the saddest we have to make. If you knew Alan or have been touched by his presence amongst us, spare some personal time to reflect on the way Alan has touched us all, supplying us with the greatest of memories.

The association and its members will always be forever indebted for what he gave us.

Please allow Beryl, Lisa, Clare, Emma and the family time to absorb the shock and space to grieve in their own way.

AGM Announcement (December 2020)

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a good Christmas, and are looking forward to a much improved 2021. Just thought we would share some news with you regarding fees etc for 2021 following the West Yorkshire County Pool Association AGM held earlier this month.

Questions were asked in recent months about what was happening to fees and monies paid in 2020 and whether they would be carried over to 2021. It was difficult to answer that until we had further information from Region 2 and the EPA, but we can now announce that up to a maximum cost of £8 per person, any 2020 registered player is entitled to register for free in 2021. This is because WYCPA can fund £5, and Region 2 can add £3 towards any charges from the EPA. Further, it was agreed that any league or Interleague team who affiliated/registered in 2020 would also have their 2020 fees carried over to next year. Relevant league, Interleague and player registration forms still need to be completed please to ensure up to date information is recorded, but unless you are a new league, Interleague team or player, there will be no additional payments due in 2021.

For information, the AGM also agreed to keep the level of fees for 2021 the same as 2020 was, so for leagues the affiliation fee is £50 and entry in to the Interleague structure is £50 per team. Player registration fees are £12 per adult, £6 for juniors (free for youth county players) and anyone who wants a card for competition entry only will pay £20.

We await further developments regarding any pool in 2021, but meanwhile, stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.

Latest News for Postponed Events

For the past few weeks and months, intensive talks have been taking place regarding pool events up and down the country. As you can imagine, with local lockdowns being imposed, the situation has remained fluid throughout.

As things don't seem to be settling down at the moment, the difficult decision has been made by our governing body, the English Pool Association, to abandon all National events entirely for the remainder of 2020.

This includes County and Interleague matches. Although this is the worst outcome for us all, the health and safety of our players is paramount and therefore we feel it is the right decision.

Hopefully, in 2021, there will be a clearer way forward and we will all be able to get back to playing our beloved sport right across the country.

To see the official announcement made, please see the EPA Home Page

With regards
on behalf of the WYCPA
