Can anyone recommend a joint with some 9’ tables near or not too far from the Memohis airport? Thanks in advance.

Check out the Southhaven RecCenter in Southhaven MS. About 20 min from Memphis airport. Good room with good equipment.. Action if you want it.

I second Nick on that. Bill Rowsey is one of the best room owners I have ever met and it is a great old school players room!

The Rack on Lamar is closest. Best pool room, in the worst location anywhere. I wouldn't go there after dark. Great room though.

High Pockets on Summer. Good all around but the rail birds are chain smokers when they get going and they all line up by the good tables.

As a side note, there have been 30 shootings on the expressways so far this year in Memphis. No reason, people are just driving around shooting. Watch your ass while you are there.


Don't believe everything you think.

Thanks for the options, really appreciate it. For years I stayed downtown and would grab a teak at the Chophouse and then goal some beers and listen to music.not anymore. That place just isn't safe anymore. It's a shame.

I second everything chopstick said although i have not played much at the reck in southhaven it seems ok....non smoking if that's a must for you.

I will add that hi pockets is my favorite though.

I heard King Tut would bet it up, but that's been a while.


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

I wound up having a pool room find me. Stayed at a doubletree not too far from the airport in a nice area and wound up at a restaurant called Napa something or another. Great meal and the bartender was extremely friendly. She asked what my plans were after dinner and I mentioned maybe playing some pool if I could get motivated. That’s when she casually mentioned there’s a place next door that used to be a Fox and Hound and they had tables. If there was a cigar bar nearby I would have hit the trifecta.

The tables are those shitty red label diamonds. Real pieces of crap. But it was still nice to hit some balls after a meal and some wine.

Downtown used to be fun. Now days the cops get robbed there. I am not exaggerating.
