was originally formed by a few resort owners
in about 1989, the idea was to give visitors of their respective resorts a chance to visit other resorts in the area and meet new people.
La Union Pool
Free transport was laid on by the resorts for their visitors to travel
to other resorts on the ‘Beach area’ to give them a chance on Thursday afternoons for a general social gathering, play a game of pool and have a few beers and snacks.
A number of resorts
over the years
Sunset Bay, Seamens, Cabana, Coconut Grove,
Ocean Paradise, Ocean Deep, Green Light, Ocean Breeze, ‘The Sportsman’s (now VFW) Bali Hai, and The Hideaway, Galaxy, Ellen's, DJ Body Shop, Seabreaze, Three Balls & Mc Grity's, Nalinac, Hideaway and Finnegans.
Because the idea was successful it was thought that a pool league should be formed hence ‘La-union Pool League’ was born.
The League is generously funded by the participating resorts and Bars
teams have played in La Union Pool
League, matches are played each Thursday at 1.00pm at
the selected resorts.
The format for each match is 3 sets, each set is 4 singles and 1 doubles game.
