All team captains are being sent the entry forms in the next few days for the VHSL Singles & Doubles comps this season. Please ensure that if you want to enter, you all liaise with your captain to ensure your entry is completed. We'll have a couple of weeks entry time to get these forms returned so if you want to enter, please make sure you get your name and entry fee paid to your captain ASAP. Full details of competition rules are on the "League Competitions" page of the site and details of the draw will be published there in due course.

Week 2 headlines.....17th Sept

Pockets A move to top of table whilst Starr pull off surprise win over Chelmsford. Rayleigh Lanes A make it 2 from 2 to go top of 2nd division

Pockets A moved to the top of the table after an 8-4 win at division 1 new boys Romford B. A big shout out to Emma Parker who beat current division 1 champion Matt Glasby 2-0! Elsewhere, a great result for Basildon A in beating Rayleigh Lanes T 10-2 saw them move up to second in the table. Chelmsford made the long journey to Starr and a surprise 7-5 win for the Canvey lads will see Paul Parkin's Chelmsford side go home with sore heads.

Division 2 saw Rayleigh Lanes A record a decent 8-4 win against Basildon B to go top of the table with 2 wins from their opening 2 games. St Marys beat Q Ball 9-3 in their 1st match of the season whilst Pockets B beat Springhouse 7-5.

Opening night's results....

Chelmsford shock defending champions Romford A in division 1 whilst new boys Romford C open with big win over Springhouse in division 2

The VHSL got under way tonight with league new boys Chelmford beating defending champions Romford A 9-3 at Chelmsford. The draw saw the battle of the Parkin brothers and a turn up saw Paul secure a 2-0 win over John.
Last season's division 2 champions Starr found life a bit tougher in going down 9-3 against Rayleigh Lanes T with a decent match report from Ross Druitt compiled in the Match Reports section of the site well worth a read!
Last season's runners up, Pockets A, opened up with a decent 8-4 victory over a strong Basildon A side with Matt Glasby oozing class with breaks of 78 and two 46's.

Division 2 saw new boys Romford C open up with a 9-3 victory over Springhouse to top the table. Can they maintain this form during the season, time will tell!
Rayleigh Lanes opened up with a close 7-5 win at Q Ball A and will be hoping to secure a return to the top flight.
A battle of Basildon and Pockets B teams saw honours even in a 6-6 draw.

VHSL Match Reports

We're looking for some match reports to be compiled this season from the teams competing. It would be great to have a report from each of the games played every Monday and considering there's 6 players per team,  we're hoping that one of you per team will be able to compile some words about the game.

Any match report received here by the league will be uploaded to the website within 24 hours as we're keen to ensure the site is as up to date as is possble. Please see Match Reports page of the site to see any reports that have been sent in.

Please email any reports directly to Steve Challis at


Tee shirts
VHSL League Tee Shirts

Due to the unprecedented demand in the last few weeks for league tee shirts, we have not been able to supply all new players with the required tee shirt. We have placed a further order with the league's suppliers which should be with us shortly. As a result, there will be a 2 week grace period for any new player without an official VHSL tee shirt to still be able to play. Please note, from week 3 (24th September), all VHSL competing players will be expected to conform to the official dress code and failure to do so will mean you will be unable to play.

In order to obtain your tee shirt, please contact Glen Sullivan-Bissett (contact details in the Committee Members page) to arrange.

Website updates thru the season

If all captains can send thru a text message to Steve Challis (07806 948001) as soon as their match has finished each Monday with the result of that nights match, the league website can be updated that night with results and up to date league tables. An ideal action would be to send a picture message through with the match lines ups that are completed with the scores at the end of the night.
We would ask that the normal method of submitting the results via the website form is still completed in due course as per normal but a quick text message as soon as your match has finished on a Monday night will mean your website can be updated that evening.

Hopefully you'll all see this as a big improvement but it needs all captains to assist in sending one message.


VHSL Finals Day - Season 2018/19

With the success of last season's finals day format held at Rayleigh Lanes, the VHSL can confirm this season's finals day will be held on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Romford Snooker Club. The finals to be played on this date will be the league singles, doubles and plate finals for both divisions. Please be aware of this date when considering entering for these competitions as the finals will not be changed to another date.

The league are proud to confirm that we have again secured substantial sponsorship funding for these competitions. Del Smith from his company, has sponsored to the tune of 200 whilst Romford Snooker Club have agreed a 500 deal with the league. Our thanks goes to both companies for their fantastic support here.
