Snooker Success

Our two boy snooker stars, Sridhar 15, and Shaunalla, 18, had never heard of snooker, let alone picked up a cue, until the snooker table kindly given to us by supporter Peter Bainbridge, arrived at the high school. Since then they have excelled themselves at the game and both have beaten formidable competition at national tournaments.

The greatest thrill of their young lives was being invited by Jason Ferguson, the chairman of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, to be his guests at India’s world ranking tournament which was won by four times world champion John Higgins, who presented them with his chalk cue and bow tie, now framed and on display in the snooker room.
