Cue Sports

Club Captain: Steven Ellis -

There are two main sections to the Durham University Cue Sports club, those being Pool (more specifically English 8-ball) and Snooker. Each section is dedicated to the finding and honing of talent in its specified sport in preparation for BUCS competition.

The Durham University Pool squad has an excellent record in BUCS competitions. The most recent successes in 2015, included winning the Men's Pool Team Trophy, Women's Pool Team Trophy and getting to the final of the Women's Pool Team Championship. Durham Pool squad also won the BUCS Pool trophy in 2013. Alexander Clewett, the club’s team captain also earned a place in the final of the North of England University Championship held at Nottingham every year.

Membership of the pool squad is based on ability only and members are generally chosen by performance in the University's inter collegiate pool league and/or performance at trials. To get involved with the University's pool scene, contact your college pool captain (email address list on the website), join the pool league forum, or email any previous experience in the sport to Richard Whitfield.

Although the snooker team is slightly newer to the university than the pool team, it has also had its fair share of successes. Including in 2013, when Durham’s 1st team won trophy bronze medals in the BUCS Snooker Championships.The snooker scene at this University is very much tied to the Pool scene and as of yet there is no inter collegiate competitive snooker.
