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.
