Snooker – Anyone can play

There are many advantages that our wonderful game has, but none more attractive than it’s longevity.  While many other sports can only be played by young and physically fit people, snooker is one of those that can be enjoyed well into your later years.

Another great thing is the lack of injuries that are caused.  No broken bones, unless you fall while taking a shot, no concussions, no sprains, blisters, cuts, bruises, burns, or anything else.  Just a whole lot of fun while challenging your hand / eye coordination and your concentration skills at the same time.

While there are many sports and activities that require many people to get together, snooker is something that can be played with one person, a few people, or even alone, if that is what works for you.

The cost of playing snooker varies slightly from club to club, but for the most part, all you pay is an hourly rate, and away you go.

As far as equipment is converned, a cue and some chalk is all that is required.  While we do reccomend using your own cue, if you play on a consistent bias, if you do not have one, snooker clubs always offer a wide variety of weights and sizes.

Finally, your physical shape is irrelevant and snooker is not for people of only certain sizes or shapes.  As long as you are tall enough to reach a table (approximately 4 feet), you are ready to go.
