Boat Club membership entitles you to join the Pool Club. The season commences on the first Thursday in March at 7 p.m. and runs through until December when a Christmas dinner and prize giving is held. These are fun nights, enjoyed by men and women, so if you are a member of the Boat Club come along and join up for a small fee. Approximately thirty financial members exercise their skills during the year on our two slate tables.

Annual home and away games are played against Palmerston North RSA, Palmerston North Cosmopolitan Club, Coastguard and Deaf Society.

Club History

The Pool Club commenced in 1976 under the leadership of Dianne Frumau and Graham Milverton. Members put in enough money to buy a pool table and as finance became available the Boat Club purchased the table and reimbursed the members. Today the pool club owns two slate tables which are available to be used at any time outside of pool club activities.

Club trophies:

  • The Peter Jamieson Trophy which was donated by Peter Jamieson who has been a member from the Club’s inception. 
  • The Hermes Trophy which was donated by in 1994 by Hermann Lieleveld. This is vied for in a doubles competition where partners are drawn. Hermie was a bar manager at the Club, a real character with a great singing voice who entertained patrons while he worked.
    Top Dog trophy was donated by the late Neil Burns in 1991 and at a later date a shield for the runner up was also donated. These are competed for over the pool season.
  • The J & J Storey Cup is awarded in an annual tournament open to all Pool and Boat Club members.
  • The Memorial Trophy has been awarded since 2000 to the winner of a singles competition and is in honour of members who have passed on. These members were: Hermann Lieleveld, Ted Jamieson, Randall Illingworth, Robin Malton, Carol Kirton, Jeanne Welch, Russell Gray
