First floor premises on Cowgate, Peterborough are set to host a members only pool and snooker club and lounge bar now that lease negotiations have been concluded, confirms Barker Storey Matthews.

The property agent acted for the landlord in securing a new leisure tenant, who will trade in this location as Players Sports Lounge Pool and Snooker Club, for the 9,324 sq ft (866.30 sqm) space stretching across 15-27 Cowgate in the city, after the previous gym occupier relocated.

The new pool and snooker club is the second venue for the operator whose other club is in Woolwich, South East London.

On confirming the letting of the property to the new occupier on a ten year lease, Julian Welch of Barker Storey Matthews’ Peterborough office said, “After the previous tenant had decided to relocate to more suitable premises, the landlord was keen to have an occupier in the property – which is designated for leisure use – who would be in keeping with the other commercial occupiers on Cowgate.

“All parties have worked hard to secure a deal that sees this independent leisure operator bring a concept to Peterborough that does not currently exist in the city centre.  The premises were occupied by Riley’s Snooker Club previously, so it is good to see this use brought back to life.  It adds a new dimension to the leisure scene in Peterborough’s central area and I am sure will be well received.”
