  • Newby to the site

    Hi all

    I'm new to the site - used to play snooker when I was younger (from about 6 to 14) and a lot in those later years. Discovered girls and pool which distracted me quite a bit. Played very on and off since then, probably no more than a few times a year. Joined a local club recently so 30+ years on and realised I wanted to play a bit more. About to invest in a full-size table for home.

    Looking forward to digging in to everyone's knowledge and helping out if/where I can.

    Martin

          A few words about the cue you use is always of interest to members. Post in the Cue section.

            Welcome to the forum Martin .

            Where are you based and what level did you play to previously ?.

            Btw, if you’ve come on here to boast about your home set up and post photos to make everybody jealous you’ve come to the right place

              Check out my ‘Project Snooker Shed’ thread, it might be of some help to you?

                  Yeah never brilliant. Regular 50s+ in my early teens with the odd break higher. Was getting to a reasonable consistency as I was playing quite a bit.

                  I'm based in Liphook, near Haselmere on the Surrey / Hampshire / West Sussex border. Out in the sticks a bit.

                    Really intresting thread - you don't do things by half do you! Great build. My build is complete, but I think I'll pop up a thread on it as I change it from an arcade to a snooker room. I can pop up the build details that we did - it might help someone...

                      That’s a good standard especially as a teenager . Did you play competitively ?.

                      If your going to be back playing then you might be interested in a senior ( over 40 ) comp that is based not far from you . Im planning on starting to enter the events myself . It seems the standard varies quite a bit. https://www.cuestars.co.uk/

                      Im not too far from as I’m near Orpington Kent . If you ever fancy a game let me know .

                        Local tournaments but that's all. And I was only in the 50s when I was playing very regularly, so for a fairly short period. I've played a couple of club tournaments just before COVID but not really up to standard just yet. Might well be interested in a comp when I get some table time in. I've lost cue ball control and just not played enough so I'd like to get back into it and definitely up for a game some time in the near future. Might even have a table some time over summer (fingers crossed).

                          I think those tournaments are a good thing as they start of on a round robin so at least your getting more than one match .
                          I came back to the game last spring after 18 yrs so I know all about losing ball control and trying to get it back .

                          When you fancy a game drop me a pm . I’m willing to travel over over your way or maybe somewhere central to the town of us like Frames in Coulsdon . If you get your own table even better !.

                            Welcome to the forum.
                            Can't wait for this pandemic to end so we all can start playing again.
