A history of the venues - past and present..............

Below is a full list of teams which have competed in the Horsham & District Bar Billiards League since 1963, along with the season in which they last participated. Those in red are still going, and pictured above. The longest established venue is the Plough (Lower Beeding) which can trace its origins back to the early 1960s:. But the single team with the longest unbroken stint of service is Roffey H (formerly the Holbrook Club and before that Sunallon Club) which - though these days replenished with new blood - has been going since 1968 ! - Clive Thompson, Aug 2016.
