Wheelchair Pool And Snooker

November 26, 2012

As I’ve written here once before, I’m a big fan of snooker.  Actually, a very big fan. I’d love to play, but I can’t lift a cue.

So, why don’t I write about this more often? Because I’ve always thought that disability and snooker don’t really mix.

That was until about five minutes ago, when I found out that wheelchair snooker was a Paralympic sport until the 1988 Games. (There’s loads of cool information about wheelchair pool at that link too.) But of the two, snooker’s my preference.

So, I wonder why the wheelchair version is no longer recognised as a Paralympic sport? It’s a beautiful game, and I, for one, think it certainly should be!
