Jon makes it four wins in five at Eastwood & District Conservative Club

The boys received a very friendly welcome at Eastwood & District Conservative Club.  The club was busy with a terrific atmosphere. The bright downlights recessed into the ceiling are unusual for a club and they make for a very homely feel.  Two quality Karnehm and Hillman snooker tables take pride of place at the rear […]

Jon wins easily at Phoenix Cue Sports

Eastwood’s Phoenix Cue Sports was very busy with pool players when the boys arrived for their 32nd frame of the tour. The pool scene at this club is thriving and it makes for a terrific atmosphere around the bar downstairs.  The club also has a well stocked snooker and pool shop and is well worth […]

Steve shows his class at Bentinck Conservative Club

Bentinck Conservative Club in Hucknall was the 31st stop on the Tour. This lovely club features two snooker tables that were manufactured by Belvoir Billiards.  Tables made by this local firm are hard to come by. Steve showed his class in this frame. He played a terrific shot to develop the blue from the brown […]

Jon works hard for a win at Arnold Labour Club

This is certainly one of the most attractive clubs the boys have visited on the tour.  The club has one table in a separate room which also has its own bar and toilet facilities. The frame was nip and tuck as Steve took the lead and Jon fought back.  Eventually Jon just managed to pinch […]

Another win for Steve at Arnold Working Mens Club

Arnold Working Mens Club is situated in the centre of Arnold’s shopping area on Front Street.  Looking at the tiny entrance from the street, you wouldn’t think this club would boast a skittles alley and a concert room. The club has one snooker table positioned in the lounge next to the skittles alley.  It all […]

Steve goes three clear with win at Arnold Civil Defence

As the boys were fighting it out on the baize, the club’s members were busy […]
