How To Join/Get Involved

The easiest way for you to get involved with us is to message us on Facebook or send us an email! If you'd rather meet us in person, then we're at the Edge Student Bar (Endcliffe) every Thursday from 7pm, and from September 2016 will be at Star Snooker Academy every other Wednesday from 6pm. Our membership prices are as follows: £10 Pool Membership This is the membership for anyone just wanting a casual game with friends. Included in this membership are any society cards from our sponsors, as well as free pool at the Edge, every Thursday evening. £20 Snooker Membership This membership includes everything that the Pool Membership does, along with a membership card for Star Snooker Academy, granting 50% off table prices. This is the membership for a player whose main interest is snooker, who is not as bothered about competitive play. £40 Competitive Membership Our premium membership offers all the benefit of the other memberships, as well as a discount from a team shirt, and discounted entry into our three main national tournaments (9-Ball, 8-Ball, and Snooker). This membership is perfect for the more competitive players, and you are guaranteed to save money if you intend on being part of the club's competitive branch. NB: you can upgrade from one tier of membership to another at any time. E.g. a member with a £10 membership may upgrade to the £40 by paying £30.

Aims For The Year Ahead

This year, we aim to capitalise on the growth of the club in previous years, expanding our member and social base, to offer something for everyone interested, as well as increasing our success nationally in BUCS tournaments.
