Snooker Room

The National Liberal Club has a distinguished history in snooker, having hosted the first series of the BBC TV programme Pot Black, which first brought the game into public consciousness. Today’s Snooker Room is much smaller, and includes a notorious ‘tricky corner’, requiring the use of a shortened cue to negotiate an encroaching piece of wall. This gives the NLC team a slender home advantage that may account for its excellent record in the annual Inter-club tournament. Players of all standards are welcome, while those more competitively inclined may join in the club ladder as well as an annual knockout event.
