The Reading University Poker Society is into its fifth year as a society after a hugely successful first four years. The society was named as the “Best New Society” for the academic year of 2013-2014.
We meet weekly to play texas hold ‘em poker. We will hold a range of events with buy-ins to suit novices to more experienced players. We have secured sponsorship for the 17/18 year. We are one of only a handful of univeristy poker societies to secure a sponsor.
Don't be worried if you have not played poker before, come to one of our "learn to play" free events at the start of the first term (see our schedule below for more details), where you have the chance to win some great poker prizes and our committee will always be on hand for some advice. If you are interested in becoming a fully-fledged member either sign up using the link on the right or visit our facebook page. Feel free to contact any of the committee members, who can be found at the bottom of the page with any questions.
We are an extremely sociable society and we are always on the lookout for new members. We hold regular socials ranging from our freshers night, nights out in town to our Christmas social and our end of year BBQ. These events are a great opportunity to get to know other members of the society. During the 16/17 academic year we went to Newcastle to play in the UK university poker championship, for the first time, where we finished 4th out of 15 universities
Membership is just £5 and this is for the whole year, come along to one our “learn to play” events and meet the committee and try your hand at poker.
