    Welcome to the community @thefox147 :) Thank you for introducing yourself! It's great to have you on board.

    I imagine being a professional snooker player provided you with some interesting experiences and opportunities?

    As the others have said, you're welcome to take a look around and get stuck in. If you need any help using the site, just let me know.

    Welcome fox147. 
    Not been her long but everyone is lovely and also well informed. 
    I was 29 when I picked a snooker cue up and was obsessed with it. Knocked my first century in 18 months later and had 3 more the following year (118 my best).
    Then lost most of my sight with MS optic neuritis and had to quit. Sights improved to nearly 60% so still pay occasionally.
    Anyway, nice to have u here bro
