The Kent County Billiards and Snooker Association is the envy of surrounding Counties as we have been regularly running successful snooker and billiards competitions for well over 30 years and we'd like to be here for a few more years yet but we need more support from enthusiastic people to help run the Association. If you would like to assist us then please go to the CONTACT page to get in touch.

> DRESS CODE...

For all our competitions the required dress code is smart casual, clean clothes. Shirt, trousers and shoes are preferred as opposed to t-shirt, jeans and trainers but this is not a rule. Many of our competitors often wear waistcoat and tie but this is not essential. We really discourage football shirts and shorts.

KCBSA DRESS CODE

We appreciate our competitors to arrive wearing smart casual clothing. Collared shirts or polo shirts with trousers or smart jeans are fine just so long as it is presentable attire. Clean smart trainers are also perfectly acceptable. Ideally we prefer that you do not wear shorts, football shirts, scruffy workwear or collarless t-shirts.

PLEASE NOTE...

With the exception of the Kent County Cup, the KCBSA competitions are only open to people who reside within the County of Kent. Membership to the Association costs just £5 per year. Members are notified of all forthcoming events during the current and subsequent season.

 

Maintaining communication with the members is our primary concern, we do an annual postal mailing before the AGM at the beginning of August and all notifications throughout the remainder of the season is by email. We have a fairly comprehensive database of postal and email addresses but we rely on you to keep us up to date with your current information in particular your regularly used email address.

 

Feel free to forward on any details of friends or players you may know who would be interested in competing in future events and we can add them to the mailing list.

Your support is vital for the future of the KCBSA
