I guess my answer depends on what you're looking for. Are you looking for a nice place to come play, or a nice place to come gamble? If you're looking to gamble, how much are we talking here? I can always get you a "game" with somebody, maybe even myself, but if you're looking to "bet it up" I may be able to get you that also. We have a couple of players in my area that would be happy to play you for decent amounts depending on the night you come. Just let me know what it is you're looking for, and who you are, and I'll see what I can get set up cuz I'd love to see some real action in this area! Jeff

I hear ya'!! Alot of players don't play anymore much cuz nobody is ever around to play, in my area anyways. There is always someone who can get ahold of someone to play though, no worries there! We have players of many levels so it depends on what your "speed" is really. Hell, I don't play much at all but even I could be interested in a game as long as it's not much money. I could do more if I had a backer, but I'm sure you know how that goes. Come on up, I'll get you into something!

Most or all of the rooms have closed in the lower in the lower Susquehanna Valley over the last five or six years. The only places to play locally are clubs, such as the Yankee, or you'll have to hit the road. You can probably google directions or better info, but here are a few with good to very good equipment and conditions.

Drexeline Billiard Club, Drexel Hill outside of Philly.
American Billiards, Quakertown.
D & D family Billiards, Downingtown, 14.1 action.
Gallery Billiards, Allentown, 30+ tables.
Buzzy's, Allentown, good action and Gold Crown IV's.
Cosmos', Scranton, Good action.
Mully's, Johnstown.

There is a little place in Ashland where they play a lot 14.1.
Also, another small place in Shamokin worth a visit.
Club Med, in Harrisburg, not too hot.

Hazelton or Wilkes Barre has a decent room.

Good Luck with your hunt.

Diablo Billiards in Lancaster it's that bad. They have the nap felt, kind of a bummer. I mainly shoot at the American Legion in Dallastown. Nice tables, cheap beer and cool people.

Great place, they have handicap tournaments every Tuesday, and scratch tournaments last Thursday of the month. There are some good players there, too.

Jordan Lanes - Allentown - Bowling Alley but has rm with 10 Brunswick tables - cheapest rate going $2.00 / hr per person 9am- 5pm- tables are not kept up to date with cloth etc - there may be action at night don't know for sure.
