THE former Rileys snooker club in Torquay is under new stewardship.
The national chain has ceased trading in Torquay, but the building will remain a snooker and pool hall.
Local landlord David Carter has re-opened the hall in Higher Union Street as the Galaxy Centre.
It is a return to the business for Mr Carter, whose family has owned the building for 25 years.
The snooker hall was known as the Galaxy Centre before Rileys arrived in 2000.
The new business officially started on Monday last week.
The snooker hall will continue to function in much the same way it has since 1985, but Mr Carter is promising to invest £10,000 to £15,000 in a new TV system.
Rileys was placed in administration in 2012.
Allan Graham and Jane Moriarty, of KPMG, were appointed joint administrators of Valiant Sports Limited and its trading subsidiaries otherwise known as Rileys Sports Bars, the pool, snooker and darts social club business in November 2012.
A spokesman said: "On appointment the administrators sold the rights to trade the Torquay club to a private investor and we have had no further involvement with the club.
"KPMG are still administrators of Valiant Sports Limited until November 23, 2013."
