TorquayTalk is delighted to introduce Galaxy TQ as our new hospitality partner. Galaxy is Torquay’s premier sports bar and should be no strangers to United fans having previously purchased advertising hoardings at Plainmoor as well as sharing (with TorquayTalk) the sponsorship of Kyle Cameron during his time in south Devon.
Less than a 20-minute walk from Plainmoor, and just a 10-minute walk from Torre station – Galaxy is perfectly placed for a pre or post-match pint for home and away fans alike. The bar features three big screens and multiple HDTVs showcasing Sky and BT – up to five live events can be shown simultaneously ensuring all the action is covered.
What’s more, Galaxy is open 7 days a week with plenty more to get excited about – the bar is equipped with 11 English pool tables, an American pool table, 8 snooker tables, a ping pong table and even a shuffleboard – the first in Torbay.
Galaxy TQ is run by Darren and Matty; both are huge sports fans and advocates for all things United, and all things Torbay. Darren is no stranger to local football, having enjoyed a successful amateur career before serving as secretary at Torquay Town FC – born a Geordie, he has lived in Torquay for 20 years. Matty on the other hand grew up in the Bay and reserved his sporting ability for Motocross in which he competed regionally.
Speaking about the new partnership, Darren said:
“We’re delighted to partner with TorquayTalk. The channel offers us the opportunity to increase awareness of Galaxy as well as engagement, and footfall both with home and away supporters whilst helping Dom and the team continue to create exceptional content
“Please do come and visit the bar – and definitely make yourselves known as Torquay fans. Please also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date with everything we’re offering”
Dominic Roman, TorquayTalk Editor added:
“Without our partners (Bay Advocates and now Galaxy) we simply could not do what we do – these relationships have helped us upgrade the site, introduce the Youtube channel and develop the Etsy shop.
“Galaxy is a great fit – I have started many nights there and know the business well. It is a fantastic setting and offers something every single day of the week – most importantly, I know the team really value TUFC and TorquayTalk”
Galaxy TQ can be found on Union Street (161-163 Union St, Torre, Torquay TQ1 4BX); snooker prices start from just £7 p/h Sunday – Wednesday and £9 p/h Thursday – Saturday.
