Member's Rules


  1. Always use Google Calendar to check table availability and to book your session.
  2. If you are the only occupants in the Village Hall lock the front door behind you.
  3. The whole of the Village Hall is a No Smoking area. This includes the Fire Exit and Stairs, as well as the area immediately outside the front door. Similarly no recreational drug use will be tolerated anywhere on the premises.
  4. If other parts of the Village Hall are in use, please be aware that this is an old building and sound from the Snooker Room can travel a long way. Keep cue drops to a minimum and conversation / other noise to a sensible level.
  5. Whilst playing keep your alcoholic input to a sensible level. If you need a proper drink The Five Bells will gladly welcome you. The drinks fridge is to keep your own drinks cool – the contents are other member’s property.
  6. It is everyone’s responsibility to maintain club facilities in the best condition possible. Place balls back on their spots gently to avoid marking the cloth; the same applies when using the rests. If any of the waste bins are full, bag the contents and deposit the bag in the correct outside bin at the south end of the hall.
  7. Whilst guests are welcome, you can only invite a maximum of 3 guests at any one time and only book table 2 for all guests to play on. There is a £2.00 entrance fee per visitor per visit. Normal tables charges apply thereafter. All guests to be 18 or over, with the exception of member’s direct relatives (ie; children) who can be 16 or over. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure that all guests abide by the rules of the club.
  8. No betting or gambling is permitted.
  9. The heating system in the clubroom has been programmed in agreement with the Village Hall committee and should not be altered in any way.
  10. At the end of each playing session it is your responsibility to ‘block’ the table. Using the green baize covered blocks sweep the table in one continuous motion from the baulk cushion down to the black cushion in a straight line. This should remove most of the marks left by fingers or rests and realign the nap of the table baize, making the table perform more reliably for the next members using it. DO NOT use the blocks nail side down! Only use the table brushes or iron if you know what you’re doing.
  11. Payment can be made by cash or bank direct payment and must be recorded in the Payment Diary by the Fire Exit. If for whatever reason you are unable to pay the full amount this should be recorded as such in the diary and crossed through as and when payment is made
  12. If the Fire Exit has been opened for any reason it must be closed and locked before leaving the club. The same applies to the windows in warmer weather. Likewise, check that the Club Room entrance door has closed properly before leaving.
  13. When entering or leaving the hall either early in the morning or late in the evening please bear in mind that we are in the middle of the village with neighbours on all sides.
  14. Follow the checklist by the door when exiting the snooker room.
