New League Venue: JP’s Snooker Club

The Committee of the DMC Leisure Saffron Walden & District Snooker Club are pleased to welcome JP’s Snooker Club to our league as a new league venue for the 2016/17 league season.

Following the closure of The Stow Snooker Club, our reigning Scratch Singles champion Jason Pegram took on the task of breathing a breath of fresh air into a run-down and tired old building and having completely gutted it, has transformed it into a new, modern and family friendly venue for snooker with 5 full sized tables.  The grand opening of JP’s is on Saturday 10th September 2016 and is being opened by none other than the 6 times World Champion Steve ‘The Nugget’ Davis [ticket only event].

The jewel in the crown of JP’s is a superb match table which was used at the World Snooker Championships final in 2009 when John Higgins beat Shaun Murphy 18-9.  By the end of the year, the club will also have several pool tables on the floor above and a poker room with regular tournaments being run.  Parking is available via an adjacent ‘Pay and Display’ car park which is free in the evenings.

We wish Jason and all those involved with JP’s every success for the future!

The address of the club is;

2015/16 League Season Update – March 2016

With 21 matches played to date in the Three Player Division and 22 matches in the Four Player Division, below is a summary of how the 2015/16 league season is progressing in each division.

Three Player Division
Whittlesford Social Club are still leading the Three Player Division league leaders on 72 points, 1 ahead of Saffron Snooker Flukiers who are up to 2nd place on 71 points. Takeley Highwaymen are in 3rd place with 69 points.  All very close with 5 matches remaining.

Burnt Mill’s Jason Pegram still has the Three Player Division highest break of 78 – one of the lowest Three Player Division high breaks in recent seasons, will it be beaten?

Four Player Division
Widdington Warriors have taken the lead in the Four Player Division on 57 points, 2 ahead of Saffron Snooker Flukes who are in 2nd place on 55 points.  Takeley Chipmunks have slipped to 3rd spot on 45 points.  Looks like a two horse race between Widdington and Flukes with 6 matches remaining.

Newport A’s Aaron Gibson still has the Four Player Division highest break of 41.

Can the Saffron Snooker Flukiers / Flukes be the first team in league history to win both the Three and Four Player Divisions in the same season?
