Shootpool Monday Singles Pool League - The Felix Cup
The Shootpool Monday Singles Pool League brought world rules to Aylesbury in August 2011, giving players the chance to learn them before their introduction in the AIPL the following season. The Premier Division was founded that first season with 8 players taking part in the competition.
Played exclusively at Shootpool on Mondays Nights from 8pm the league is open to anyone who wants to play or learn, and the league is structured to ensure that players of similar abilities are placed in the same divisions offering a challenge to those experienced players whilst a more relaxing experience to beginners.
The Felix Cup is a friendly competition that pitches Shootpool Monday Singles Pool League players against one another depending upon who they play for in the AIPL, with Shootpool based team players on one side as Shootpool Players against players who play for other Aylesbury based teams as Aylesbury Players.
