BAPTO are delighted to announce that three teams from the renowned AFEBAS Blackball Association in France, will be attending the BAPTO finals this November. They are sending three of their winning amateur teams, from the lowest divisions of their annual ‘AFEBAS DIVISIONAL CHAMPIONS FINAL’ event, to compete for the ‘BAPTO 2018 Team Trophy’ title and add to the history books of the UK’s longest established pool tournament.
These are genuine French pub teams, that play throughout the year in a league, to win a place at the Divisional Champions Final. It is exciting to have teams attend that have qualified through the traditional method that BAPTO created back in the 1980’s and 1990’s, during the peak years of pub league pool.
We welcome the following French AFEBAS teams and ask all players attending to give them a friendly welcome and show them what a great event BAPTO is: Team LES POTO’s – Champions of Departmental 2 Division; Team LES MARINA’s POOL – Champions of Departmental 1 Division; Team LES HAPPY’s DAYS – Champions of National 3 Division.
