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.
