Snooker is fast becoming a growing leisure sport amongst both young and old. This exciting table sport is not only being played at pubs and bars but in homes across the world. Snooker is a cue sport that is played on a large table with pockets in each of the four corners, and one in each of the middle long side cushions. The game is played using a cue, one white cue ball, 15 red balls, and six balls of different colours: yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black. One of the advantages of having your own snooker table at home is that you and your friends can play anytime you want.
Some of the benefits of playing snooker include:
Snooker was believed to have been invented in India, but it is popular in English speaking countries and it has become a mainstream sport in UK, Ireland and Commonwealth countries. There has been a steady growth of interest in game in Asian countries too.
The object of the game is to score more points than your opponent by potting object balls in a predefined order. The magic of this game is that both children and adults can play and learn to become masterful with patience and practise.
Did you know that the word snooker is actually slang for first-year cadets or inexperienced personnel (snookers). It seems that this sport hooked 18.5 million people in 1985, when Dennis Taylor played and beat Steve Davis after a momentous battle; Taylor won the game when he finally potted the last possible ball at midnight.
McSport has sourced the most outstanding table for customers and it is well worth viewing. If you are looking for a fun brain twitching activity, a snooker table for sale is what you need.

Thinking of getting into Olympic handball? Excellent choice! Playing handball is a great way of getting your body fit and keeping it healthy by means of a fast-paced exercise regime. Aside from being a fun, sociable activity that requires the bare minimum of equipment, handball also has the potential to improve your levels of agility, flexibility, as well as your overall cardiovascular health.
In the rapid-flowing game of handball the basic aim is to throw the ball into your opponent’s goal as frequently as possible during two thirty-minute stretches. Players work together by passing and dribbling the ball up the court to score a goal. Since the game is very fast-paced a great number of shots are taken and a score of more than twenty points to a side is not an uncommon occurrence.
Although men’s handball already debuted at the 1936 Games that was hosted in Berlin, the indoor game was first introduced in Munich in 1972; while women’s handball first made its appearance at the Olympics hosted by Montreal in 1976.
The main skills required to be a successful handball participant include strength, speed and agility. The sport has been compared to a cross between soccer and basketball even though participants (apart from the goalkeeper on either side) are not allowed to kick the ball or manoeuvre it with their feet in any way. The health and fitness benefits of participating in handball are numerous and include:
Now you can buy all your handball equipment (including handball gloves) from McSport fitness and sports retailer. Simply browse our extensive selection of quality merchandise, click and purchase!
** Please note that handball as referred to here is normally termed ‘Olympic Handball’ in order to distinguish it from the informal game that involves hitting a small ball by hand in a walled court.**

McSport now stocks a wide range of hockey equipment, including hockey sticks and helmets.
Hockey has been played for centuries and cannot be said to have one single point of origin, since hitting a ball with a curved stick seems to have been a popular pursuit the world over for quite some time now. A game similar to field hockey (a term that is used to distinguish the game in countries that also practise ice- and street hockey) has been found depicted in 4000-year-old Egyptian drawings, as well as in Greek manuscripts and the Mongolian oral tradition. The modern game and its rules are said to have evolved from a winter sport that Middlesex cricket clubs played to keep fit during the rainy season.
Today hockey is played all over the world by both men and women on surfaces as varied as gravel, grass, sand and artificial turf. Some of the countries that are particularly involved at an international level include Europe, Asia, Australia and South Africa. The sport is governed by the International Hockey Federation, which is made up of 116 members.
Playing hockey has a variety of physiological- and psychological benefits, especially for school children. These include:
