pool

hello, we are the essex blades pool club


Pool is a game of both mental and technical dexterity. It has various rule sets, the most popular being World Rules. It involves two colours - red and yellow - all seven of which must be potted before the black ball. We offer more relaxed sessions for more social players, and serious coaching and competition opportunities for anyone looking to improve their game.
 

How many teams do we have?

Provisionally we take at least two teams to each event: 9-Ball and 8-Ball National BUCS in Great Yarmouth, South of England Championships in Weston-Super-Mare and the East of England Championships in Cambridge. However, we usually take at least three teams, five players in each team.

Most serious players have their own cues, however, we have our own stock that you can use during sessions. We can provide you with everything you need.
