Senior Boom in Canadian Snooker

The 60's, 70's and 80's were the decades where snooker tables were used the most in Canada.  Thousands of young players everywhere were playing in leagues, tournaments and just for just plain fun (or money!).   There was no internet, there were no celullar phones, no playstations, and you can just pop in to the local club and find a game with someone there.

For various reasons, the last 2 decades saw a dramatic decline in the game as these players got jobs, got married and had families.

Now, these same players are starting to retire, and their children are started to move out of the house.  Do you know what that means?  More time and more money to do the things that they always loved to do, and that includes snooker.

Senior snooker leagues are beginning to sprout in different parts of the country.  Snooker is being played all hours of the day again and the nice thing about it is that it doesn't take that long to get that stroke back.    What a nice feeling is is to see that spark in these gentleman's eyes again.
