  1. Easter 2022 will see the temporary closure of the village snooker club. MAC contractors will be putting on a complete pitched roof from that date, hopefully during DRY WEATHER! During the closure the club will be re-vamped in many ways, we look forward to welcoming back members and anyone interested in a game of snooker, pool or darts. Re-opening date will be advised, John (Hon.Sec.)

  2. Hi, my lad is 17 in October, we are struggling to find a place locally where he can practice with other snooker fans. We live in Newquay, the edgecliff is strictly over 18’s. Wondered if he could join GH club? Thank you for letting me know asap.

  3. Good Evening
    I am currently living in Bodmin, due to working in Bodmin making it easier.
    I was wondering what the criteria is for ‘locals’ membersip?
    What hours is the club open?
    I appreciate match night isn’t one to have a game however would watching be an option?
    I haven’t played for some years and would like to find somewhere I can play, with or without an opponent.
    Do you have any advice to offer?
    Many Thanks for your time
    Andy
