In the winter of 2014 I wanted a new hobby challenge. I had a love for snooker from I was very young but I hadn’t played for a few years and there was a glimmer of love for the game still and I wanted to reignite it again. We opened our club in March 2014 and had the snooker table built. We never realised where this could lead to though and a number of people have supported me hugely through this.
I got this table to play a few friends. Over the next year this evolved into CueBall Snooker Club and during the year 2015 a number of guys from the local community met and played frames of snooker and this seen the beginning of our competitions officially. We then discussed among ourselves about having a competition open to the local community. When we advertised it on facebook wow the interest was amazing and the fledging start of a snooker club was formed.Read more

I have enjoyed my time at CueBall Snooker Club played in Tobermore, it has been a good experience, I have played quite a number of players including professional players such as Joe Swail. Mark Allen and the legend Jimmy White. My best memory in competitive matches has been a final in the 1st season where I Lost the final to William McKenzie 3-0 but to get there was incredible. A match that stands out for me was being 18 points behind with 18 left on table and potting the blue pink and black to level up the scores, I did lose the black ball respot but it is the closeness of the frame which I love to be involved in.Sam Kirkwood
My best match was a final against Warren Elgin, this was a player that I seemed to always lose against and I had already lost to this man in a shield final, I got this opportunity to play Warren in another Shield Final and this time I win 3-0 which was my best match.William McKenzie
I was having a bad season on the table in season 2018-2019 and this was my last ranking competition, I was drawn against Warren Elgin in the 1st round in a best of 3. Warren hammered me in the 1st frame by over 40 points and the 2nd frame I stole it on the black ball when Warren fouled on the black ball. It was 1-1 and my confidence was lifted and the deciding frame I stood within distance of Warren throughout the frame and was slightly ahead going into colours, Warren does not give up and I just needed pink to win the match, Warren got the pink to take it to the black ball but he left the black close to the middle pocket, all I had to do is touch it put it in and I took my time and then I MISSED it, incredible miss and Warren win the match on the black, I was gutted but so pleased I was competitive in this match.Ady Wylie
I enjoy the high pressure matches especially if they are tight or I have come from behind to win although there were plenty I lost. I enjoy most games apart from the ones I don’t play as well as I should. I also enjoyed the chance of playing the professional players who have visited over the years.Michael Campbell
From playing fast paced shoot-out snooker to playing tense league matches and knockout matches, CueBall Snooker Club is a great place to play. The competitiveness of every individual is fantastic and every player is respectful of one another which makes for a great atmosphere.Mark Paul
