Street snooker draws a crowd

Aldershot News & Mail - - NEWS -

FAM­I­LIES got a kick out of a wall game that com­bines the fea­tures of snooker and foot­ball.

Church Crookham Parish Coun­cil hosted a free, fun ses­sion on the Street Snooker fa­cil­ity at the Peter Driver sports ground in Bour­ley Road last Thurs­day.

The game in­volves play­ers kick­ing a ball against a green wall re­sem­bling a snooker ta­ble and build­ing breaks by hit­ting the red tri­an­gle fol­lowed by a colour.

Alder­shot Town FC’s Foot­ball in the Com­mu­nity Trust team was on hand to en­cour­age keen par­tic­i­pants to hone their ball skills, while much-needed re­fresh­ments were pro­vided by the parish coun­cil.

Chair­man Pat Lowe said the day was so suc­cess­ful the coun­cil hopes to make it an an­nual event.

“Peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties are wel­come to use the Street Snooker fa­cil­ity and you don’t have to be good at foot­ball,” she added.

“You could try throw­ing a ball or hit­ting it with a ten­nis racket, you could chal­lenge some­one else to beat your score, or you could play against the ‘one-minute chal­lenge’.

“The aim is just to have fun and get some ex­er­cise.”
