Street snooker draws a crowd
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.”
