Snooker & Pool


  • Snooker is a two-player sport played on a large snooker table with six pockets
  • It is played using a cue, one white ball, 15 red balls and six coloured balls, with each colour carrying a different number of points. All red balls must be potted before the players can attempt to pot the coloured balls
  • The player who has scored the most points when all the balls have been potted is the winner


  • Pool is similar to snooker, except with seven red balls, seven yellow balls as well as one white ball and one black ball
  • It is also played on a much smaller table and is a popular pub sport
