Pool & Snooker

Whether you are a complete beginner or a pro pool player, if you’re looking to meet new people and have a good time, Pool and Snooker is for you.

Our home turf is The Corn Exchange pool hall in the City Centre, only 15 minutes away from most halls, and very close to the Derbion shopping centre. We meet every week, on alternating Mondays and Tuesdays (5pm-8pm) for official sessions to ensure that people can at least make every other session. However, pool tables in University of Derby halls of residence are FREE and so we can use these for extra socials, as well as practice of course!

Throughout the year we run loads of events to ensure that there is something for everyone. This year we have gone on nights out as a club as well as with other clubs – a great way to meet new people through the year. We have offered and all paid for bowling trip including a meal as well as a mini golf social. No matter what your interests there will be something for you – and if you have any ideas let us know!

Achievements

In February 2022 we took 2 Men’s Teams and a Ladies team to 8-Ball BUCs. Everyone played amazingly over the 4-day trip, with 2 of the Men’s players making it to the top 32 of individuals and 1 of the ladies making it to the top 16. Within the team event, our Men’s 1st Team Got into the Championship and then went all the way to win in the final 6-0. This is the first time in at least the last 8 years a team has won 6-0!

Our first ever Snooker Team also went to BUCs in June and was able to make to the quarterfinals where they unfortunately lost 6-4 to the #1 seeded team.

At the Sports Awards 2022 we achieved Gold Club Status and won the Team Performance of the year for our Men’s First Team at 8-Ball BUCs, as well as achieving the 4th Highest number of BUCs Points. We were also nominated for Most Improved Club of the Year, Committee of the Year and Club of the Year.
