200 league players, friends and followers attended the 20th anniversary presentation evening of the Farnham and District Billiards and Snooker League for last season on the 9th November at Lindford club. the evening started with some trick shots demonstrated by John Virgo, followed by the snooker players with the highest break from each division and a lucky ticket winner, playing a frame against Steve Davis with commentary by John Virgo, including jokes and banter, and trophies being presented to all the winners and runners up by Steve between the frames.
A presentation was also made to Steve Markham who has refereed for the presentation evenings for 19 of the last 20 years and taught several players to be referees and has now retired. A very well supported evening enjoyed by all.
2017 snooker and billiards
The teams play in The Farnham and District Billiards and Snooker League. Snooker is played mostly on Thursdays and Billiards on a Tuesday between September and March.
Our club and the league is always looking for new teams/players for both sports especially Billiards as there are presently only 4 teams. There are 4 players per snooker teams and 3 players in the Billiard team who all have individual handicaps due to the different skill levels of the individual players.
The A team were in the second division and although they enjoyed the season, they finished second to last with 39 points having played 26 games winning 4, drawing 8 and loosing 14.
The B team were in the third division and also enjoyed the season, they finished fourth from bottom with 35 points having played 20 games winning 5, drawing 5 and loosing 10.
The C team sadly had to withdraw from third division half way through the season due to lack of support.
The Billiards team also enjoyed their season and finished last with 146 points having played 24 games winning 7 and loosing 17.
The teams took part in the end of season handicapped team knockout but unfortunately were knocked in the early rounds.
If you interested in playing during the winter and fancy representing the club, then have a chat at the bar and they’ll get you in touch with Mark Franklin. Alternatively, send your details to LBSCadmin@virginmedia.com and they will be forwarded to Mark.
At the Club we have a full size snooker table which is serviced regularly.
We currently have 3 snooker teams and 1 billiard team that enjoy competing in the Farnham District Billards and Snooker League between September and March.
One snooker team is in the second division and the other two are in the third division.
There is only one division for the billiards.
New players are always welcome.
The table is available to all members during club opening hours seven days a week, except on match days.

Darts is a game that is mainly played during the winter months, and here at the Lower Bourne Social Club we have 8 teams competing in various leagues throughout the winter, and 3 in the summer.
We have three match boards, better known as oches (that’s the line you stand behind to throw your darts). Teams play in local leagues on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
And its not just a sport for men of a certain age as we have three mixed teams, which play in the local winter league, and you can play at any age (as long as someone who is over 18 and a member can sign you).
If darts is your game why not pop in and have a chat with the bar staff about joining.
Every Thursday at the club, about 8pm, so why not come along and give it a go.
