ABOUT US

Chandlers Ford Snooker Club is situated just off the M3 between Southampton and Winchester, in Hampshire.

Plenty of free car parking is available right outside the friendly club, which is located at the back of the Central Precinct in Chandler’s Ford.

Bus stops are two minutes away and Chandler’s Ford Railway Station is a five-minute walk.

The family-run club has ten well-maintained tables and is open seven days a week to members and non-members.

Junior sessions are held every Saturday morning for boys and girls aged six to 18, an open tournament runs every Saturday afternoon, a scratch singles league runs on Tuesday evenings and club handicaps take place on Thursday and Sunday evenings.

Chandlers Ford SC is well known as a snooker players’ club. Owner Jim Everett insists he won’t install pool tables, loud music and flashing lights like many snooker clubs have done in recent years.

We get enough complaints when somebody hums or whistles on another table,” he laughed.

It is, and will be, a place for snooker addicts - for people who come up here for one thing: to play snooker in a quiet atmosphere on nice tables.

It’s not uncommon to walk into the club on any given day and find a seven-year-old practicing his black-ball angles, a husband and wife enjoying a leisurely social game, four office workers unwinding with a couple of beers over a game of doubles and two century-breakers halfway through a best-of-19-frame match.

HISTORY

Ken Everett and his late business partner Norman Croucher, then owners of Winchester Snooker Centre, opened Chandlers Ford Snooker Club on July 31, 1990.

Formerly Ged’s Snooker Centre, it was owned by Ken’s golfing pal Hugh Stewart, who now lives in Scotland and had named the club after his son. The handmade snooker tables still carry his ‘Royal Stewart’ plaque.

Although the club is now run by his son, Jim Everett, Ken does all the maintenance work and he has his own Aladdin’s Cave snooker workshop underneath the club.

Jim launched a Saturday morning junior section in May, 1992, and he has nurtured the careers of some of England’s finest young players. He declares that working with the boys and girls, aged six to 18, is still the highlight of his week.

The unique format that has evolved over the years coupled with his dedication and encouragement has produced a string of England players, one of the country’s top women stars and countless local league players.

Mike Finn, Alex Dunkley, Nick Jennings, Billy Castle, Dan Hildyard, Jordan Winbourne and Shane Castle have all donned the three-lions waistcoat. And Suzie Opacic reached a high of sixth on the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association circuit.
