Historic snooker table seeks new home


A snooker table that dates back to around the time of the First World War is seeking a new home.

The top quality table which is now more than 100-years-old was a centrepiece of the former Warrington Club on Bold Street, which sadly had to close last year, due to lack of members.

While the building which was once home to Warrington’s oldest established Business Networking Club established in 1876 has been sold and set to be converted into apartments – the snooker table is currently in storage.
Club members who have reformed as a social group, meeting at various venues around the town, including Warrington Golf Club and Warrington Sports Club, are eager to find a new home for the table – which is available free of charge – although there would be a relocation fee of around £800.
Club member Basil Mitchell said: “Ideally we would like to find somewhere for it where we could continue to come and play and run our annual tournament in the run-up to Christmas.
“But if that is not possible we just want to find it a good home.
“It has seen a lot of action over the years and although it dates back to the first world war it is still in very good condition.”
Anyone interested in providing a new home for the table can contact Basil via email via basilofwarrington@gmail.com
