Following the May branch meeting, we have arranged our first Saturday Saunter to Darlington on Saturday 28th May. We would visit two of the venues for POTY / COTY scoring and two more for social reasons. That is not to say that the scoring venues do not have a social aspect of course.

The itinerary would be:

  • 1:00pm Darlington Snooker Club
  • 2:30pm The Britannia
  • 3:30pm The Quakerhouse
  • 4:30pm The Orb

Onwards for those who wish to continue

The suggested mode of transport to Darlington would be rail and these venues are reachable from the station on foot. Taking the 12:00 from Durham (arr Darlington 12:16) and returning on another TPE service (usually around :40 past each hour) is a TPE-only. return fare of £9.80. This service also calls at Chester-le-Street at 11:53. There is also a 12:41 from Durham (does not pick up at Chester-le-Street) arriving Darlington at 12:58 which would require a standard return at £11.40 but allows return on any train. Alternatively there are buses which may be cheaper but will take longer from Durham. The idea is to start from the furthest point and work back to the station.

If you intend to come along, please email our Social Secretary so we can make sure we all meet on the day.
