"Rileys Sports Bars, the 59-strong chain of pool and snooker halls that dates back to 1878, has gone into administration."

Confirmed. Sad News.

They'll have to chalk this up to experience.

Will there be anything to cushion the blow ?

Im starting to baulk at this tory recovery.

Not saying that the current economic conditions haven't tipped Rileys over the edge, but I was always surprised they hadn't gone out of business sooner.

The snooker club business was always a bubble of sorts, back when snooker was on TV more than a lot of other sports and the culture was a bit different. It burst back in the '90's IMO, I think mostly due to its faltering popularity as a spectator sport after Sky started showing the Premier League football. It has slowly deflated since then.

How many snooker clubs does a small-medium size town need?
