Snooker clubs in Frankfurt

So far here i've seen little evidence of any Snooker Clubs. I know the game's never really taken off here in Germany. Today I found some info tho about a club called century snooker out in kelkheim... which looks pretty cool. Can anyone vouch for it's quality, or it's existence at the very least!! Or even better does anyone know any clubs in Frankfurt itself. There are plenty of Pool places around i know...but i'ver a hankering for some slightly more sophisticated cue sports !!

There is a place opposite the Panorama Bad in Bornheim that is quite good.

 

I have only played pool there a couple of times, but I am pretty sure they have snooker tables too.

:unsure: ...(ahem!)...In my defence...(make yourself comfy!!!)...there is quite a difference between a pool club with a couple of snooker tables and a proper snooker club, proper snooker clubs are normally a bit more celubrious, in a pool hall the snooker tables are often pretty shoddy and you normally have to negotiate pinpall machines and one armed bandits in order to get a decent cueing... having said that i haven't checked this place out yet so i'll reserve judgement and check it out very soon..!!! :D

 

oh and yeah, cheers ben (and muffin) for the info :D

i have been to said snooker club in kelkheim and can confirm its existance and quality, it is run by an ex pat from london and a german fellow. they have tried hard to recreate the right atmosphere and i think they have done a good job, though im not so keen on the jazz music.

Are there any enthusiastic and good pool players around? I don't care if it's 8-ball or 9-ball, even snooker, I'm desperate for a decent opponent.

 

Also looking for a pool club with nice tables and passable cues.

i'll gladly join you for a game of pool, though, being american, i've never played snooker before. i may not be good (don't know what your standards are), but i'm certainly no slouch.

 

as for a good club, i have no idea.

Good to see a snooker/pool thread. I'm very keen to play some decent pool again - it has been a while. I used to play snooker too but got lazy... I could be coaxed back to the big table again, though. I'm in Wiesbaden, so Bornheim is a bit far away for me. Is anyone keen/know a decent pool hall in or near Wiesbaden?

A few years ago, I was on the same flight from Glasgow-Berlin as Stephen Hendry. He was "tooled up" with his cue, didn't realise snooker had any popularity in Germany.
