SnookerHub

Based in the north west of England, SnookerHub is an internet resource for the amateur snooker player. The main function is to provide a calendar of amateur snooker tournaments across the UK.

SnookerHub can tell players where and when these events take place.

Dedicated club pages provide more information relating to the venues and can help to attract new, regular customers. These pages are managed by SnookerHub and provide a cost-effective solution for clubs, rather than them commissioning and maintaining a dedicated website. The SnookerHub page can be an extension of any existing club site.

SnookerHub promotes events by means of regular newsletters, social media and through the site itself. With an ever-growing following, SnookerHub really is ‘at the heart of the amateur game’.

Active Workspace Ltd (MemSec EPoS)

Active Workspace Ltd was founded in 1990 when the MD, Ross Ranson, was asked by the manager of his local snooker club in Chelmsford to write a computerised membership and table timing system. Today the company shares a building with that first club.

Ross christened the system MemSec, short for Membership Secretary. The addition of its own light controller made MemSec the only proactive light control system available. It remains the market leader to this day and over the years has evolved to support every possible type of table, rate, membership and offer. Nowadays it is usually packaged with its fantastic EPoS till software to create a single system for running your entire club. Options include loyalty schemes, smartphone apps, table bookings, text marketing and many other great features, developed with the input of club owners up and down the UK.

WSP Textiles – Strachan Cloth

Manufacturers of the world’s finest snooker, pool and tennis cloth based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Official and exclusive snooker cloth suppliers to the World Snooker Tour, we are famous for manufacturing the Strachan No. 10 Championship cloth used on all ranking professional events since 1980 including the World Championships in Sheffield.

Strachan has also launched an antiviral snooker cloth called 6811 Tournament Antiviral.  The cloth contains a virucidal / antiviral protective finish based on reaction mass of titanium dioxide and silver chloride.  

The antiviral treated textile significantly accelerates the deterioration of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (which leads to the disease COVID-19 in humans) to the point where it becomes non-transmittable.  The SARS-CoV-2 virus would last between 24 and 48 hours on an untreated cloth but the same virus would last less than an hour on the treated cloth.

Strachan has been manufacturing the finest woollen snooker and billiards cloth in the south west of England for over 150 years.

Strachan is now part of the same group off companies that manufacture the world’s finest cuesports equipment such as Aramith balls and Simonis worsted pool cloth.

We now supply professional snooker and pool cloths around he globe to provide perfect conditions at the world’s best snooker clubs.

For details on stockists of the full range of Strachan cloths please contact Stuart Gardiner.
