    The origin of snooker dates back to the latter half of the 19th century.In the 1870s, billiards was a popular activity amongst British Army officers stationed in India and several variations of the game were devised during this time.
    One such variation originated at the officers’ mess of the 11th Devonshire Regiment in 1875, which combined the rules of two pocket billiard games, pyramid and black pool. The former was played with fifteen red balls positioned in a triangle, while the latter involved the potting of designated coloured balls.
    Snooker has been played on a 12 foot table with 22 Balls. (1 White, 6 colours and15 red balls)
    Over the past 30 years, Snooker made its presence in Secunda, from an early developed Sasol (snooker at Sasol club) to today. Secunda has seen a couple 100 breaks over the past 30 years. Famous ones by Mr Robbie Grace.
