The Paulton & District Skittle League is based in North East Somerset, around the towns of Midsomer Norton & Radstock, and it was in Paulton, one of the surrounding villages, where our league was formed way back in 1933.

We run a mixed skittle league for both men & women and open to young and old alike (min age 16).  Our season begins in September and runs through to May.  League games are played on Wednesday & Thursday evenings in local pubs & clubs commencing at 8.45pm.  Currently we have 76 teams in our league and over 750 members from in and around this beautiful area of Somerset.

A few years ago our league had a full quota of 128 teams in 8 divisions and we were the largest skittle league in the country.  However, due to the pandemic and the forced suspension of our league, some pubs/clubs closed down or turned their alley's into dining areas.   During this time we lost many of our teams and venues, plus the fact that some teams had a lot of senior members who stopped playing altogether.   We now have just under 80 teams, but still believe we are the largest league, and on the plus side we now have room to expand once again...  So if you are 18 or over and want to play skittles or you have a team of mates that want to play, then please get in touch with us, you'll be most welcome. (see below for contacts).   While you're browsing our site please feel free to make use of the many advertisers supporting our league.

On this site you can view fixtures, results, tables, photos, rules and much more.  All our league meeting dates & minutes will be posted on our 'News' page, with league tables updated to this site on Wednesdays during the season, all our meetings start at 8pm.   You can upload your own skittle photos directly to our 'Gallery' page and while you're at it why not leave a blow-by-blow account of your game on our 'Match Reports' page or leave a comment on our popular 'Banter Board'.  Go on give it a go, it's fun and it's free.

Charity:- Every season 15% of our league fees are set aside to aid local charities.  We are now asking our members for charity recommendations for next season !   If you run a business and would like to sponsor our league then please get in touch with us via the 'Sponsors' page, ads start from as little as £25 for a full 12 month, it's too good to miss !

This area of Somerset prospered in the 19th & 20th century largely due to extensive coal mining.  Radstock has a Coal Mining Museum which is dedicated to the men who worked long hours in these dark pits. 

If you come to this area why not visit the museum, it will give you an insight to the history of this lovely part of Somerset. If you click on the picture (below right) you can visit their website or watch an old film clip of how mining used to be like in the early part of the 20th century.

This years charity donation went to 'Swallow'
