I will be traveling to Cape Cod this weekend, may be spending a couple of weeks up there. Anyone know any secret little spots to enjoy a game of pool? I know Snooker's is relatively close, anything else???

Ummmm...see you soon, man! Wish I knew before the summer started and we could have rented you my wifes cottage.

Check out the Fan Club in Wareham. Close and a nice room with good players. I can meet you there or Snookers. Either works for me.

I'm thinking the fan club is shorter drive from the cape then Snookers in RI ? Funny thing I just got to fall river from VA a few hours ago.

Yeah. Fan Club is probably closest to the Cape. There used to be a place in Dennis (or Dennisport) years back but it was terrible. Right on the water and, as a result, humidity was always an issue.

Nice! Hopefully you have better weather than I had last week.

E - The Fan Club is a nice place and only about 20-25 minutes from Otis.

Straight shooters in Fall river is not too far, but the Fan club might be the better bet. And you proballaby 30 45 Mins from Snookers from NB.

Lobster Trap is a great little place. My wife and I stop there every time we are coming back from the Cape. Excellent food and it's actually right down the road from the Fan Club, just over the bridge.

Fan club is a very nice place. Tables play very well and consistant with each other. Straight shooters is an old school pool room. In Swansea, there is Willabys. Great place. 17 tables with 4 1/2 pockets, Friday nites, $7 per player, for the nite. The last furthest away from you would be Snookers. If you traveled towards Abington, there's Stix and Stones. Great club / Restaurant. Great food. If your looking to test yourself. Snookers is having a qualifier Saturday afternoon for their Bud classic coming up. Quite a few players about. Action is not hard to find in 9 ball, 10 ball and one pocket.
Hope this helps.

Hey E, the Bud tournament is the one you and I went to a few years back where you qualified in the A division and I qualified the B. Think it was Rolling Rock then.

You should have been there dude. I didn't know it was a handicapped tournament. I just paid my $20 and gave him my name. I won 5-0 in the first round, second round I go up 4-1 and the dude shakes my hand. I said "that's only 4 games", he told me he was spotting me a game. I went to the TD and he said he ranked me too low. I said he should change it to what he thinks it should be, but he told me it wouldn't be fair to the guys I already beat if he changed me at this point. I won the next match 5-0, then the hot seat match the guy had to go to 6 and I had to go to 4. I won that 4-0, then he played me again in the finals and I got him 4-1. I played well and it was a fun tournament. Glad I didn't draw Koop!

Played there on Thursday with my Grandson. Sports bar and adjacent room with 10 Gold Crowns.
What was surprising to me was the good condition of the tables and the Aramith tournament balls.

Depends really on what you're looking for. It's a nice place, tournament starts at 1PM, it's handicapped, double elimination.
Couple of A players and lot's of B players so no shortage of decent competition. They may rate you high to begin with until they get a feel for your actual speed. They lowered me after one week to where I probably should be

I am looking to to crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentation of the women!

So as long as there are women to lament, I will pay it a visit.

Just want something different to check out, seems like they get 8 to a dozen players each week going by the sheet on their site. My son and I have established Fargo ratings in the B range so I'm sure they can find some other players similar to our speeds to match the handicaps. I'll try to take a ride down at some point. I think I sill have your cell #, I'll send you a txt when I head over if you want to go also.

I'm not sure about the website, but both times I played there, they had 17 players.
