About us

Established in 2016, the LSE Pool and Snooker Club is one of the up and coming clubs you can join in the SU. During this short span of time, we have expanded our club to over 30 members of diverse background and experience; creating a really warm, welcoming and inclusive environment for our members.

As a small club, we pride ourselves on our tight knit community, inviting everyone to join in and become part of our growing group of dedicated members. Regardless of your skill level, high or low, we promise that you will not be out of place in the club!

If you’re just looking to play casually, we typically meet multiple times a week and spend many long nights playing and chilling at our resident club, Hurricane Room in Kings Cross.

If you want to improve your game, our more experienced members are ever willing to help you improve to the next level and eventually compete with the team. Pool is a sport that does not have a steep learning curve, so you certainly will improve rapidly within a short span of time.

For more experienced players and keen beginners, you will definitely get the chance to compete with the team and represent LSE in national tournaments. We have 3 main competitions during the season, and all of them are held outside of London. The competitions consist of both individual and team brackets and year on year our players are able to place incredibly high in the tournaments, last year we had members reaching the Last-16 of the BUCS National 9-ball Tournament and at the Leeds Championships our 1st team won the Vase trophy, our first tournament victory so far.

Despite the intense competition, the tournaments provide are really fun and fulfilling break from the LSE grind - who knows, you might even return with a medal in hand. Most of us have looked back and singled these out as our most enjoyable experiences in the LSE.

Membership

Our membership structure consists of two tiers.

First, the Casual membership at £15.00. This membership will give members access to all of our weekly sessions throughput the year, providing half price pool and/or snooker play twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday) at Hurricane Room Kings Cross. In addition, you will be able to benefit from the training and support of our Training Director and other experienced members.

Second, the Competitive membership at £75.00. This membership gives you all the same benefits as the Casual Membership, however training will be much more rigorous and personalised. In addition, you will have access to all of our competitive fixtures throughout the season, including at least 3 national tournaments. You will receive a brand new cue on loan to you, free of charge, for as long as you are part of the competitive team.

Many of our members start the year casually but as they improve and become more interested in the sport and playing competitively they become competitive members.

Events and Activities

To sum up, by joining us, you will get:

  • Half price pool and/or snooker play twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday) at Hurricane Room, Kings Cross
  • Free personalised coaching from our Training Director
  • Heavily subsidised competition joining fees for competitive members
