Contest Pool’s Availability

We are asked a lot of the time are there any matches on certain lakes?

Firstly to confirm the following pools are day ticket only and will NOT have matches on them:

  • Moby Dick
  • Mickey Mouse
  • Figure of Eight

The Major Bill is of course private as its a specimen lake.

That leaves the Match, Farmer Jack, Snake and Stock Pool - Its important to remind we’re not a big match fishery, our guests are the most important thing so we try and keep the waters as free as possible.

Our members matches are every 2nd saturday of the month, and we no longer take “new” club bookings in season on any day other than a Saturday. We will always honour our existing customers. A Saturday is normally a quieter day on the lakes as its change over day for holiday makers.

The Snake (Saturdays – yet only handful of pegs used) and Stock Pool (Sunday Open match) are used once a week. The Farmer Jack is used on a Thursday for an Open Match 12 months a year. Otherwise the Match & Jack are mostly used at the weekends and rarely apart from Resident matches are used in the week summer time.

In the winter there is a Knock Up every Saturday and Sunday. Draw at 9am. Any questions please ask on 01568760544 Tackle shop. Please remember Syndicate Matches are every 2nd Saturday of the month. Refer to Members booklet for details

For new match bookings – We arent taking any new bookings in the summer on Sundays as this is a key day for residents to enjoy and we dont want pools tied up. So new bookings, if agreed would be Saturday only. Ask for details.

Price of either Match Pool or Farmer Jack is £150
