Snooker Rules and Booking

Snooker Rules and Booking 

There is no charge to play Snooker.

These rules governing the use of the Snooker table (in the Pat Loseby Room) are based on the Snooker Bye-Laws approved by General Committee. The complete Bye-Laws are available at Reception.

Conduct and Use

1. In the interests of preserving the expensive but delicate baize cloth:-

No glasses, or items other than cue chalk, may be placed on the table surround, nor should they be held over the cloth at any time.

Learners, in particular, should exercise care and not strike the cue ball too low. This may cause the cue ball to jump, and risks tearing the cloth with the tip of the cue.

2. No food may be consumed within this room.

3. No persons under the age of 16 may play.

4. Members should approach Reception to pick up and return the balls, unless there is a player in the room or a follow-on player waiting.

5. Damage to or loss of items will be charged to the account of the member signing for the session in which such damage or loss occurred.

6. Lights and air-conditioners should be turned off after play.

7. Usage after 2300hrs, if approved by the General Manager, will attract an overtime payment of $180 per hour, plus $75 staff travel allowance.


1. Playing hours are 0800-2300 daily. Bookings can be made up to 3 days in advance at Reception in person, by telephone at 2832 2817 or by email - click here.

2. No member may book the room for more than 2 hours per day without the permission of the General Manager.

3. If the Snooker Room is not occupied within 10 minutes of the commencement of the period for which it has been booked, the room may be used by any members waiting to play and the original booking will be deemed to be cancelled.
