Heron Court Hall

Rugeley Snooker Club’s home for over forty years has been Heron Court Hall

Heron Court Hall, Rugeley, Home of Rugeley Snooker Club and Rugeley Poker ClubHeron Court Hall is a large  mansion built in the Gothic style, erected in 1851 by Joseph Robert Whitgreave, one of the founders (with his sister Etheldreda) of the Roman Catholic church directly opposite the hall

The Sisters of the Christian Retreat opened St. Anthony's Convent at Heron's Nest, Heron Street, in 1901, but to accommodate members of the order who had been expelled from France the convent was moved  on 31 July 1904 to Heron Court.

The convent used it as a Christian retreat and teaching centre until the 1960s

In the 1960s, Rugeley Billiards club acquired Heron Court Hall

Since then, many local businesses and clubs have made Heron Court Hall their home, including Rugeley Poker Club, who meet in the club bar each Monday.
