About Our League

The league was formed by George Constable from Comrades at a meeting with the representatives from six local social clubs on Wednesday 6th July 1983.

Eleven different teams began playing in the first competition two months later on Tuesday 6th September. From these initial teams only the Comrades is still playing. However, a further seven teams have subsequently joined so most importantly now giving us a workable vibrant league.

From 1989 we regularly participated in a competition with the Colchester League until regrettably, they disbanded in 2004.

The History of Cribbage

In the early 1600s, Sir John Suckling an English courtier, poet, gamester and gambler invented cribbage, which he derived from the earlier game of Noddy.

Originally, a five-card game was played where each player discarded only one card to the crib. Nowadays the six-card game is more popular with each player discarding two cards to the crib.

Cribbage is very popular in the United States of America and Canada with many cribbage leagues and clubs in existence; in England, it is the only game that can legally be played in a public house for money.
