Aston University Pool & Snooker Club
Aston University’s Pool & Snooker Club is a growing club at Aston University, with this past year being a particularly momentous one in terms of tournament results; our largest club membership to date; an increased female inclusion within club events and tournaments representing the university; and an amplified club awareness amongst students both online and offline.
Our mission as a club is provide a safe and fun environment that welcomes students of all abilities who have the ambition to improve upon their pool and snooker skills. Through participation in our club activities, our members can also work on personal development such as teamwork, social skills, hand-eye coordination, accuracy, focus, strategic and critical thinking.
The 2018/19 season has now ended and the club are proud to have been shortlisted for many of the top awards at the Aston Students’ Union Awards Night. Our shortlisted nominations included:
• Club of the Year
• Most Improved Club of the Year
• Committee of the Year
• Sporting Achievement of the Year
The past year has been an exciting one for the club, with our highlight being our Men’s 1st team achieving 3rd place in the Team Shield and achieving promotion at the BUCS-UPC Eight Ball Championship, the biggest university pool competition in the UK. We also had 2 of our members reaching the last 32 in the BUCS-UPC Women’s Eight Ball Individual Championships.
Off the back of an exciting year for the club, our vision for the coming season is to build upon and continue the club’s success through the major BUCS tournaments and other university-organised tournaments across the country. Another important goal the club have is to continue its growing female membership and inclusion at tournaments. The 2019/20 season will hopefully see the club continue to enter teams at the BUCS pool, snooker and 9-ball tournaments, as well as various non-BUCS tournaments.
Your sponsorship can help us to pay for coaching to help our members improve upon their skills, travel (and accommodation when necessary) to various tournaments throughout the year and organising club events throughout the year. We aim to make it as affordable as possible for all our members to ensure no one is excluded.
