Do you enjoy playing billiards?
The game certainly has a long and rich history!
Beginning around the 15th Century, it’s believed to have evolved from lawn croquet played outdoors.
The play moved to an indoor table covered with a green cloth to simulate grass for better year round play.
In 1600 Shakespeare even mentioned it in his play, Anthony and Cleopatra.
The first rules were written in 1675 and have been revised as the game modernized.
Snooker is an off-take of the original British game of English Billiards. Those in the know tell us that the British appetite for snooker is akin to the North American love of baseball!
There have been times throughout history that billiard tournaments received even wider coverage that some wars!
The game died off somewhat in the 50’s until Paul Newman starred in “The Hustler”, bringing it back full force.
Best news of all is that her patio should be open for the 1st of April – so let’s cheer the good weather on!
