I'll be in London next week. Love to hear about people's favorite poolroom(s) there. Thanks!

This one is a private club, but you can be "sponsored" by a member and allowed to play. Just say you are visiting from America and are looking for some 9-ball action. Then ears will perk up, someone will sponsor you, and they might even uncover the table in the corner for you to play on.

You need to go downstairs to enter the club.

Jennifer Barretta is currently on her world tour over at most if not all of the Riley's in London.

THE HELL with Poolrooms go to the Crucible and watch the Worlds Snooker Championship now going on. Try BBC.com/snooker for matches etc.####

"Here here"! ####. Those guys are insane. Mechanics near perfect. Ronnie O'Sullivan himelf is worth the time to tune in! The poor ref. can't move fast enough to spot the colours, I'm sure he's hit a few fingers before haha. St.

All well and good suggesting heading up to Sheffield for the World Snooker, but tickets for that can be impossible to find! HOWEVER, you can still sit in front of the TV and watch the BBC's coverage.

Saying that, though, it will certainly be on in any of the Riley's clubs that you might go into.

Enjoy your trip to London.

Best wishes

You can try Centre Point Snooker Club and Gym - it's right near the Tottenham Court underground stop on the Central Line. It's actually below street level in one of the tunnels/passages going down to the trains. They have a half dozen 9' tables and five 12' snooker tables. It was a decent place to play, but it's hard to find - ask for help!
