Pub games

6.9 Games commonly played in pubs and clubs and social and youth clubs like pool, darts, table tennis and billiards may fall within the definition of indoor sports in Schedule 1, but normally they would not be played for entertainment of spectators but for the private enjoyment of the participants. As such they are not regulated entertainment, and the facilities provided (even if a pub provides them for profit) do not fall within the limited list of entertainment facilities in the Schedule.

It is only when such games are staged for spectators, for example, a darts championship competition that the activity would become licensable.
