What is the National League?

The National Poker League is running for it’s second year, after Richard Kellet became the Player of the Year in 2019 wining the first ever NPL!

NPL is a points-based league, where points are awarded to players taking part in any of the ‘Grosvenor Presents’ live poker tournaments or the selected online events as shown in our schedule below.

The prize pot is funded by the players who take part in any of the qualifying tournaments. 2% of the prizepool will be deducted from all the qualifying events and added to the National Poker League prize fund. There is no additional admin charge for taking part in The National Poker League.
