Jacqui said: “We took over the club in 2019 and it was in terrible almost derelict state of disrepair.

“We spent months working on it before we could open to the public. We now have 14 snooker tables, two of which are heated, and 6 match play pool tables. We hold regular snooker tournaments and competitions and people travel from all over Kent to attend.

“After a lot of hard work reviving the club we feel it’s important to host these events for all our members to enjoy and be able to meet these sporting legends.

“We now have over 3000 members and each event we have held has been a great success with customers excited to see who we have booked next.

“After Bobby George we have three times snooker world champion Mark Williams on the 6th May. This is a snooker exhibition with customers also playing him. On October 16 we are delighted to have world champion Dennis Taylor and 6 times world champion Steve Davis holding a snooker exhibition. They will be playing the final frame they played at the Crucible together for the World Championship in 1985 which is causing a lot of excitement with our members.

“Over 20 million people watched the Dennis Taylor and Steve Davis final worldwide. “Mark Williams has also told us that even if he wins this year’s world championship a few days before our event he will still definitely be here.”

  1. I remember seeing the Steve Davies/Dennis Taylor match, which ended after I think, 35 frames on a black ball! Since Lockdown I must have watched over 30 snooker competitions, and never got bored once! I can’t play any more, due to poor eyesight, and other infirmities, but wish this venture all the best luck in the world.
