The snooker club has fantastic facilities based right here in Union Southampton, with direct access to four snooker tables; two dedicated solely to members.
The team consistently competes at the highest level in national University tournaments, with recent success in both snooker, 8-ball and 9-ball pool.
The club is very active with members of all abilities and is happy to embrace new members. Find out what we can offer members of the club by speaking to us at the Society Bunfight. We will be actively posting across social media, so to keep up-to-date follow us on Twitter (@SotonUniSnooker) and Facebook (Southampton University Snooker & Pool Club).
We will also be running a competition to earn a year's membership during Freshers Week, worth £45! So why not come along, improve your game, meet some new people, and enjoy the incredible facilities we have right here on campus. Still not sold? Look out for us at the Bunfight in Fresher's Week (Snooker & Pool Club) , and don't miss out on the chance to come and try out the facilities for free on our first club nights held from 4pm-7pm on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September, followed by curry after the Sunday session.
We all look forward to seeing you there! Interested in playing competitively? We run team trials during the first week after Freshers Week, see us at the Bunfight or during the first club night to find out more.
Over the next year we will be running more cash-prize tournaments than ever. Those interested in trying out for the team; snooker team trials will be on both the Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd October (dates tbc), and pool trials (English 8-ball and American 9-ball) will be running the week after, follow us on social media for information on how to sign up. Snooker trials will consist of practice and in-game set-ups aimed at assessing the existing ability of a player (potting, safety play, current ability, stance), and any potential Pool trials will be consisting of participants competing in frames against each other.
Whilst wins will carry some merit, everyone will be considered based on the way they play, and whether employ strong tactical knowledge and potential to improve..
These are the current membership fees offered by Snooker and Pool, although many clubs and societies offer a free period for new members to try out their activities.
