Queen's University Belfast Snooker and Pool Club (October 2012)
Intervarsity snooker trials are starting in early November - on Mon evenings. If you are a QUB student and would like to be considered for one of the teams, please contact us - as below. Pool trials will held once those for snooker are complete.
Queen's Snooker and Pool Club is based in the Alex Higgins Room (the Snooker Room) - off the Speakeasy on the First Floor of the Students' Union. The Higgins Room has 11 brand new 7 x 4 Supreme pool tables, all coin operated, and two snooker tables. The area is much more open and spacious than before, and is licensed.
New, and indeed returning, members are very welcome!
While any Queen's or visiting student can play on the pool tables, only Club members may play snooker. QUB Snooker Experience!
Hence we're back to "business as usual", with Queen's students continuing to have the opportunity of enjoying cue sports in the Union, a tradition that pre-dates even the opening of the building in 1967.
Our weekly Wed. afternoon flyers have resumed and will run until Easter. From now on they will start at 1 p.m. sharp each Wednesday. All current and prospective members are welcome to attend these events. Wed. afternoon is the best time to speak to Andrew Maguire, Aaron Mullen or Ryan Quinn about joining us (it's only a fiver for the whole year), and you can do so via Queens Online.
Alternatively, ask the snooker room attendant about membership.
Snooker league matches are on Thursday evenings.
In summary then, recreational - as well as competitive - snooker and pool are on the menu.
