After nearly three decades the game of pool is still flourishing in this neck of the woods with the Cardigan & District League going from strength to strength and standards at an all-time high.

It all began back in 1986 when Grosvenor became inaugural champions and followed up by completing a championship hat-trick and in the 1990’s Commercial B won four titles on the trot.

The championship wins are held by Teifi Boating Club with six, their first coming in the millennium year and remarkably the club cueists have been runners-up on no fewer than eleven occasions. Lamb A achieved a hat-trick of titles before relinquishing their crown last season when Gobaith were crowned champions.

During a highly-successful presentation evening at the rugby clubhouse the awards were presented by various league officials.
