The Hereford & District Skittle League is set to return for the first time in 18 months, after being cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There have been a few changes due to a number of teams dropping out, but it will return on 24th September with four divisions.

The return will be a boost for many venues, with Friday trade down recently across the night economy in Hereford in comparison with before the pandemic.

The Hereford & District Invitation Skittle League was formed in 1902 and today has hundreds of players competing from September to April every year. Primarily, the competition is based in Hereford City however, there are also venues at Clehonger, Credenhill, Withington and Wellington.
