Popular London club The International has had its licence revoked by Hackney Council which alleges that the venue has been operating as a large scale poker venue.
The International listed chess, draughts, backgammon, sudoku, bridge, scrabble and pool in its initial licensing application in 2009 but an investigation by Hackney's licensing enforcement team, in association with local police, accuses the venue of principally being a poker venue.Hackney Council's licensing sub-committee has revoked the club’s gaming permit and withdrawn its premises certificate. Club chairman Barry Martin said that the club would fight the council's decision. He told the Hackney Gazette, “We operated for over two years without a word from the council to tell us we shouldn’t be doing what we were doing, we thought everything was ok, we never thought we were on the wrong side of the law.” “Our private members’ club was set up so people didn’t have to go into a casino-like environment so they can play games of their choice, in a club where they felt safe and not turned into some financial number on a spreadsheet.” The club is still open for members while the appeal is pending.
