One thing you probably don’t talk about when planning a bucks party is spending the night playing with a set of hard balls. But, put a big stick in your hand and add in a felt topped table, and you’ve got a night of action most fellas can’t say no to.
I don’t know where your mind might have wandered to here, but I’m talking about that ancient game of snooker, pool and billiards.
Scattered all over the place in dedicated halls, to pubs, clubs and a lot of house-hold games rooms, these slate topped tables provide a great night of entertainment for your mates bucks party.
Another good thing about them is that pool halls, snooker or billiard rooms usually come with a fully stocked bar with more drink than your bucks party could consume. And legend has it that the more you drink, the more honed your playing skills become.
Adding a list of bucks challenges is a great way to make a bucks party, bachelor party or stag party at a pool hall heaps more interesting. Since there’ll be a heap of strangers at the venue, it’s a great opportunity to get some crowd participation going.
Having a list of fun filled activities like challenging the biggest bloke in the bar to a winner takes all game, seeing how many eight-balls he can pocket (either by sinking them on other tables or literally putting them in his pocket) or joining in on another tables game and acting like he’s supposed to be playing are great ways to add some entertainment to the night.
If you pick the right night, you can usually enter a pool competition and you might even come away a winner with a free slab of beer or a meat tray… now, that’d be something to remember!
