Older than the game itself, Tattersalls Club has some of the finest Snooker players. Celebrating a hard-fought win over Killara Golf Club this week (6 – 4) the reports suggest games in Sydney were very competitive and played in great spirit.

Our final game is against Royal Sydney Golf Club to be played at Royal Automobile Club on Monday 04 September. Spectators are welcome.

It was in the officers’ mess of the British Army’s 11th Devonshire Regiment stationed in the Indian town of Jabalpur (Jubbulpore as it was then known) in 1875 that Lieutenant Neville Francis Fitzgerald Chamberlain created the game of snooker.

First played by British Army officers stationed in India in the second half of the 19th century, the game is played with twenty-two balls, comprising a white cue ball, fifteen red balls, and six other balls—a yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, and black—collectively called the colours.

Our exquisite championship has hosted to many historic games including a record break by the great Walter Lindrum.
