The Markington & District Rural Billiards & Snooker League was established in 1952, with its teams based in attractive Nidderdale in the western part of North Yorkshire. The league carries on a tradition of competitive Billiards and Snooker over a large rural area covering approximately one hundred and fifty square miles. League headquarters is at Ripley Star Club , just north of Harrogate.

Results and league tables etc for the 2012-13 season can be accessed via the menu bar at the top of this page.

All the clubs involved in the Markington & District League are friendly and open to new members, and if you live in the Nidderdale area and are interested in playing Billiards or Snooker either socially or competitively, then please contact us via e-mail at left, and we will endeavour to provide details of clubs in your area.
