The Albany's Snooker Teams

The game is generally regarded to have originated in the latter half of the 19th century. Billiards had been a popular activity amongst British Army officers stationed in India, and variations on the more traditional billiard games were devised. One variation, devised in the officers' mess in Jabalpur during 1874 or 1875, was to add coloured balls in addition to the reds and black which were used for pyramid pool and life pool. The word "snooker" also has military origins, being a slang term for first year cadets or inexperienced personnel.

Where we play

The Club's 4 full size snooker tables are a permanent fixture in our upstairs games room. Here you can have your game relatively undisturbed away from the main bar. These are regularly kept in tip-top condition by a member of the Club's snooker team. It's free to play and there are cues if you don't have your own. Table lights are on a timed meter, and there's plenty of room for spectators. Children may play but must be accompanied by an adult who is a paid up member of the club and strictly supervised at all times.
