The Leyland Pool League was originally founded in 1996 by the late Mick Sharples (1967-2009), and played on Mondays to the World 8 Ball Pool rules, with many teams of players from the Leyland area competing for trophies.

In 2013 the League changed format to a Thursday night Singles league competition, to give players more frames to play each match night: five as opposed to the one/two used in the team leagues.  Soon after in 2014, the playing rules were modernised to follow World Pool-Billiard Association's Blackball Rules, and frames per match increased to six.

All pool players in the Leyland area are welcome to enter the League before the commencement of each new season.

Each match is played consisting of six frames, with three four matches taking place at each venue-table, every Thursday evening.

Fixtures are flexible to include players on various work-shift patterns, and matches can be re-arranged to accommodate holidays and emergencies.

Players entering the League pay an entry fee of £20 per season, with trophies and cash prizes awarded to the top three players in each division.
