Pool & Snooker

Originally founded as a Society, Pool and Snooker can announce that we have now moved to a sport to be able to offer our members even more than before. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a more experienced 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 15-20 minutes away from most university halls, and right next door to the Derbion shopping centre (formally known as Intu). We meet every week, on alternating Mondays and Tuesdays (5pm-8pm) for official get-togethers to ensure that people can at least make every other session. In addition, all pool tables in University of Derby halls of residence are FREE, so we can use these for extra socials, as well as get in extra practice! Previously we have collaborated with Derby Uni halls to run two tournaments for halls students with a prize of £50!

Throughout the course of the year, there will be many opportunities to be able to socialise with fellow members outside of our usual venues. This will include fun social events, internal and external friendly tournaments, collaborations with other clubs and many RAG events to raise money for charity.
