When the Gatehouse Community Centre was refurbished in 2010, one of the old school classrooms was earmarked for use as a snooker room.

Willie McKie was instrumental in starting the Snooker Club and was its chairman from 2010 until his death in April 2018.

Here is our tribute to Willie

2nd April 2019 : It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our first treasurer, Tom Myers, who was a great friend to Willie.

When the snooker club first started we experimented with an annual ladder competition. Then we introduced handicaps that have been refined each year. In the snooker handicap competitions, the player with the highest handicap starts with the difference in handicaps between the two players, whilst his opponent starts from zero. In the billiards competitions (which are only played on a handicap basis) we have always played such that the first to 125 points wins. Since 2017, players in the billiards games have each started from their handicap level (to avoid games lasting too long !).


 


The 2018 match between Gatehouse and Kirkcudbright resulted in a win for Kirkcudbright by 12 points to 8. This was the 4th victory for Kirkcudbright in the 5 years the competition has taken place. On behalf of the Kirkcudbright team, Paul Tebay receives the Selkirk Shield from John Morton of Gatehouse.

The recorded scores should read : Kirkcudbright won 8 - 2 at Kirkcudbright, Gatehouse won 6 - 4 at Gatehouse, with the overall score being 12 - 8 to Kirkcudbright.
