Welcome to Cardiff University Pool & Snooker Club (CUESOC) 2019/20
Cardiff University Cuesports is one the cheapest club to join in the Athletic Union and lets players of all abilities play snooker and pool on a regular basis in a fun, social atmosphere. Weekly sessions on Monday evenings in our internal league lets you compete regularly and improve your skills. For those looking to test yourself against some serious opposition, we play in a number of tournaments throughout the year.

WHAT WE DO
Everything cuesports! English 8-Ball Pool, Snooker, American 9-Ball, Singles/Doubles Tournaments and much more!
...oh, and we're not adverse to the occasional pint now and then...
We meet every Monday for our pool and snooker league, social nights TBC. There's a MINIBUS from the BACK OF THE STUDENTS' UNION that leaves for Frames at 6:30pm. We'll be getting back 10.30PM-11PM.
We're also considering an additional pick up outside Taly accomodation, dependent on the interest.
We play our club pool and snooker league games every week at Frames Snooker Club in Pontyclun, around 20-25 minutes drive on the minibus. This has been the location of the welsh uni's tournament the past couple of years, so provides solid practise time on competition quality tables!
What would a university society be without some socials to kick back, chat sh*t and have a beer [or seven];and maybe even fit in a few games of killer! We host regular socials throughout the year, hosted by our social sec Jonathan Burke. We may even chuck a house party or two in; who knows
[One of our social nights at The Vulcan! Cheap beer, free pool, lots of laughs; what else could you want?]
