Follow us on :
The INTERLEAGUE CHALLENGE is a LIVE LPPL team event where regional teams of 12 players each come together for a weekend of poker, booze and… well, more poker and more booze!
Every year each team will have a Team Captain chosen by LPPL who will look to lead their team to glory – the team that are crowned Champions then have the honour of defending their title the following year, with the event hosted in their Region, with the actual venue (usually an LPPL host pub / club, but it could be a casino etc) and date co-ordinated by LPPL – it is usually held in early Sept.
For some events we have also involved 1 or 2 ‘invitational teams’ – for example, previously we’ve had a team from APAT, but mostly, invitational teams are made up from LPPL members who didn’t make it into their Regional team – where a invitational team wins, then as Defending Champions that winning team is invited back to defend their crown, with the next location chosen by LPPL.
The INTERLEAGUE CHALLENGE 2020 was cancelled due to Coronavirus, with 2019 being won by an invitational team, and therefore that team has been invited back to defend their title, and LPPL has elected to host the event over the weekend of Friday 3rd Sep 2021 at the Northfield Conservative Club, 1 The Mill Walk, Northfield, Birmingham, B31 4HL.
Each Team Captain has a place in their team, with further places available to be ‘won’ via LPPL games / leaderboards etc, leaving the remaining to be decided on by Team Captain ‘Wild Card’ choices (must be members of LPPL who have played in LPPL).
The weekend will run as follows:
7pm - Registration for Social MTT opens (£24 per team)
(only needs 1 player to register the team)
Bar closes 1am with 1 hour drinking up time
11:30am - teams assemble at Northfield Conservative Club
12:00 noon - teams introduction / music
(commence play on completion)
5:30pm Round 1 complete
7:00pm Round 2 commence - complete 10pm
10:30pm Heads Up Final commence - complete midnight
Bar closes 1am with 1 hour drinking up time

As usual, all teams must wear ‘team shirts’ and this year the shirts will be ‘printed’ t-shirts and it will be the ‘design’ that differentiates each team from another - and the design of the shirt is chosen by Team Captains and all team members must purchase the shirt at £25 per player paid via Teams Captains in advance.
The Top 3 winning teams will split a ‘cash prize’ from the event as donated by LPPL as £720/£420/£300.
'National Championship Weekend' prize package vouchers may be used for this event, which will include 2 nights shared accommodation, initial buyin to the Fri evening poker game, payment of the £25 for their team membership and a £25 bar tab in the Club on Saturday.
