Get Inspired: Why get into snooker?

Snooker offers a different challenge from other sports - whether it is in local competition at pubs or club competition, it offers an accessible option for anyone hoping to pick up a cue.

From popular cue chains to the table down at your local, it shouldn't be hard to find somewhere to hone your skills.

It requires skill and concentration and will improve your focus and hand-eye coordination. Anyone can play regardless of age, gender or ability and it's not an expensive sport to get into. For more information, visit the Get Inspired site.
