Saturday Minis

Woking Snooker Centre (WSC)  runs ‘mini’ tournaments every weekend, normally on a Saturday, which are open to all club members. The vast majority of these tournaments are ‘Handicapped’ (assessed by Pete and his trusty team) but we do vary them so from time to time there may be something like a Scotch Doubles.

All tournaments are £10 to enter, and you can register in person at any time during the preceding week or on the day, space permitting. These tournaments run when there are not any other ‘main’ events running at the club so they don’t run every weekend.

For more information on club membership / playing in one of these tournaments, please contact WSC on 01483 762754 or simply enquire at the bar, anytime. 

Anyone can win which is confirmed by yours truly winning back-to-back ones!
