This year I'd like to expand FindSnooker.com to include a list of snooker tables in Canada, and I could use your help.

First I'd like to create a list of all the tables known and rumored to exist. If you know of a snooker table at a local pool hall, club, rec center, hotel, senior center, or other venue, please post a reply, send me a PM, or send me an email via FindSnooker.com.

I'd appreciate whatever info you can provide. It's helpful to have as much of the following information as possible:

Name of site
Type of site: pool hall, private club,...
Mailing address (incl. province and postal code)
Phone number
Website
Number and size of snooker tables (e.g. 12', 10', 9', ...)
Other notes on condition of equipment: cloth, rails, etc.
Last date table(s) seen or pool hall contacted

Typically I won't keep track of the hours of operation or the cost for table time. I'll include listings for tables in homes, but the listing would be limited to a forum username and/or email address and the city (or closest metropolitan area).


I'll be cross-posting this request on the Snooker forum here at AzBilliards and at TheSnookerForum.com. Thanks for your help.

Thanks to everyone who has posted so far. I'm rewriting the software I use to maintain the listings, but once I've made the changes I'll start posting Canadian listings online.

Hi Rethunk,

I don't know if what I am replying is useful for you or not but I think you can give it a try. Above listing is good but not sufficient. Why don't you look for an existing directory ( not necessarily pool directory because you can find this stuff in general directory also). It will save your time and will give you lots of data.

Hi Rethunk,

Although I have a list of directories of pool rooms, those directories are rarely kept up-to-date, they aren't comprehensive, and few provide specifics about the number and types of tables. When I first started FindSnooker.com early in 2009, I spent several months googling, sending out emails, posting on AzB and on other websites, talking to (a.k.a. badgering) fellow pool players about places they've played across the country, following up hunches and rumors, and making hundreds of phone calls.

In many cases I've only found out about a snooker table because someone mentioned it on AzB.

My plan over time is to have a directory for Canada at www.FindSnooker.com that is as complete as the list for the U.S. There are partial lists of snooker tables in Canada here and there, but to my knowledge there is no complete list.

I've finally started making changes to my site-generating software so that I can include listings on FindSnooker.com for snooker tables in Canada. Those should be up within the next few weeks.

This has been a long time coming. Thanks for being patient.

This is where you'll find the main page for Canada:

Thanks again to everyone for the listings for snooker tables in Canada. Recently I passed all that information to the administrator of SnookerCanada.ca.

For the current list of places to play in Canada, visit his site here:

If you're traveling around the world, I've linked to listings from a number of other countries:
