Come and play snooker at Walkley Community Centre
We have an excellent snooker room with four full size tables that have recently been re-clothed and re-varnished. We consider them to be the best looked after tables on the hillside. We’ll let you be the judge of that, but the University of Sheffield Pool & Snooker Society voted us Club of the Year 2012/2013. The beautiful old score boards and tables are original items dating back to the early 1900’s. The snooker hall also boasts one of the finest views from a snooker room anywhere. The gable end wall contains a historical stained glass window commemorating the Walkley Lads who fell in the 1st world war. This too has been fully restored recently with the aid of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Walkley Ways, Walkley Wars History Project.
Who can use the snooker tables?
All are welcome to play. We encourage young and old alike to use the snooker hall. Children under 16 should be accompanied by adults and 16-21 year olds will be asked to show proof of age before their membership will be accepted. The stewards are happy to share their knowledge of the game and can provide you with cues, balls and chalk. Abilities vary greatly, we very much welcome all comers to have a go. This is a snooker facility for the people of Walkley, NOT a private snooker room or an exclusive club.
