Five local bars and restaurants are hoping to establish a mixed pool league in Sylvan Lake.

An open meeting is being held on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. at Pier 7 to gauge interest and discuss the idea.

Sheree Davies with Pier 7 explained that if there are enough people signed up there is potential to add anotherleague as well.

“We are starting off with mixed men/women,” said Davies. “There are options of a men’s, ladies and a fun league but we will need 40 per league.”

The league will be a registered VNEA pool league and is a great way to meet new people. The league has a standardized set of a rules with the chance to make it the championships held annually in Las Vegas.

Participants must be 18+ years of age.

The Fireside Lounge, Chief’s Pub & Eatery, Hockey Central Sports Lounge, Blondie’s Restaurant, Pier 7 Restaurant & Lounge will all be hosting league nights throughout the season.

With no pool league currently in Sylvan Lake, Davies adding she is looking forward to seeing players stay local in the new league and not have to drive to Red Deer especially during the winter.

Individuals are welcome to sign up without teams as there are sure to teams needing an extra player or two. Davies added there is also the option to sign up as a spare.

“If some one is unable to commit to the full season they can sign up to be called when some one else can’t make it,” explained Davies.

For more information or if you are unable to attend sunday’s meeting, contact Sheree Davies at pier7restaurant@shaw.ca
