Hi I will be going to UofT for exchange in a weeks time. Can anybody introduce me to a good place to play pool at? Best is if it is walking distance from UofT. Thank you.

I claims no knowledge of the best pool halls close to U of T

Here is the Shooterville list of rooms.

Just stick Toronto in your "Find in this page" in the Edit feature of your toolbar
Click on any found, and it will take you to a page with a link to a street map.

Happy research.:D

If you are in the downtown campus, I strongly suggest "Annex" billiards. It's about 10 minutes away from the UofT campus along Spadina (From Woodsworth College). They have about 10 snooker tables, 8 9 footers and 2 8footers. But beware, there is this German guy that works there... don't poke fun at him ;)

You play there often? Planning to go there this weekend or next. Theres this crazy guy who works there and stalks anyone who dares sit on those rails. No regards for the ladies either, does his job well.

Whitney hall... I can't remember but I think that's the new rez that came out recently. I used to stay at Woodsworth just on the outskirts of campus. There are a lot of poolhalls here and there in Toronto. Personally I like "The Charlotte Room". They usually keep the place clean. Address is 19 Charlotte St. As for clean balls... I haven't found a pool hall that keeps the balls clean on a consistent basis. You should probably head down to Shooters if you want some first class playing conditions.

Yeah I think we have a qualifier for the Canadian tour coming up. I don't think it's happening till August though. I remember university college, used to have my meals there. Stealing food and bottling as much liquid from there as I could back in the day hahaha. I just finished playing at Annex last weekend. I can't believe I used to like it there. Tables were really bad.... rails played dead and the cloth .... it was more white than green. I think it's probably more of a snooker hall than a pool hall.
