Club voted best again

WARGRAVE and District Snooker Club has been named Berkshire’s best club by the Campaign for Real Ale.

WARGRAVE and District Snooker Club has been named Berkshire’s best club by the Campaign for Real Ale.

The private members’ club in Church Road won the organisation’s regional club of the year for Reading and Mid-Berkshire.

It is the ninth time in 10 years that the club has picked up the award, which was presented by Wargrave resident John Robinson.

Chairman Steve Sears said: “Most people in the club like beer but it’s a snooker club first and foremost. We have a healthy membership and it means you can get a good game of snooker.

“The award is for the quality of the club and the beer, the friendliness of the bar staff and the general ambience and it is a nice, friendly club.”



The club was founded in 1952 by Roland Brownless and now has more than 100 members. It has thrived since being taken over by a committee in 2001 following financial problems which almost led to its closure.
