The World Snooker Championship Rematch

Steve Davis vs Dennis Taylor, The World Championship Rematch

On Tuesday 6th February 2018, the Club hosted two former world snooker champions Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor, as they re-created their famous 1985 World Final on a purpose-built table by Keith Davis in the Roehampton Room. The event was a sell out, attracting more than 130 Members and guests as Steve and Dennis filled the evening with fantastic trick shots, brilliant snooker and lots of jokes and stories.


Andy Nowell, Roehampton Club Snooker Chairman, was a brilliant guest referee and Club Member and Comedian Alistair McGowan provided hilarious commentary through all the voices in his repertoire.


Two guests from RAC and Royal Mid-Surrey Clubs were drawn out of the hat to play a frame against the two legends and they all commented how well our Club had staged the event. Here's what you had to say:

'Great opportunity to see some of my sporting heroes!'

'Steve and Dennis were both excellent and Alistair McGowan was a great addition.'

'Watching Steve make breaks over 50 in a few minutes shows how good he used to be.'

'Dennis was so funny and what a great evening the two legends gave us.'

'Well organised and choreographed evening. Good curry too. Thank you.'
