Marlborough Snooker & Billiards Incorporated Was formed in April 2023 after the Clubs of Marlborough closed and went into liquidation in November 2022. The new club committee have worked hard behind the scenes setting up a way forward for the future of snooker in Marlborough. We have a new premises in central Blenheim which is about to open at the beginning of February.
An AGM will be held at the new venue (The Jailhouse Snooker Hub) on Friday 2nd February at 7pm (Entrance off 1st Lane, Blue door just next to Cotton On).
The main business for the AGM is to alter the constituition so we can apply for a tax exemption. The current committee members all intend to stand again.
With a lot of expenses setting up and going forward we now need your support. If you intend to play snooker again this year please get your sub paid promptly. A full program of events will be available soon and the venue will shortly have 24 hour access to members.
