Three teams look set to battle for glory in the new Portsmouth Summer League season.
Craneswater A have been the dominant force in the snooker competition.
But they may face some tough opposition from within their own club.
The A team have 10 trophies but Craneswater Z and Copnor A have other ideas.
Andy Boulton and Mike Talmondt are sure to win a lot of frames for the favourites from Southsea.
However, their club-mates have a strong line-up, if available.
Emma Bonney, Nigel Ward and Aaron Brett have an abundance of talent.
The same applies to Scott Compton’s outfit, with Steve Toms and Mick Hall on their list.
Bellair have also got two teams and will come up against Copnor B and Jason Tame’s Portchester gang for the lower places.
Division two is wide open and Copnor D and Craneswater R will be hoping to make a quick start.
Alexandra and North End have bowling club homes and seem to enjoy themselves, win or lose.
The list is completed by Leigh Park, Craneswater Q and Post Office.
Division three has a full contingent.
Cowplain B and C are led by Gary Curtis and Ray Axton, respectively.
Luke Dixon and Chloe White are in charge at Copnor Cuestars.
Copnor F, Topspot and Pompey Royals complete the line-up.
