Joburg is a place where everybody loves doing their own thing, and it makes absolute sense because there is so much diversity and so much to do. Where sports is concerned, there are many who love participating in sports and some, not so much the traditional stuff. This brings us to the alternative sport of Pool and Snooker. Pool and Snooker is no longer just a hobby or interest but has become a sport and culture in the city.
It's Nothing New But The Culture Is...
Many who might not know the term pool because they associate it to a swimming pool would know this game as Snooker. Potato, sweet potato - same difference. Okay, maybe sometimes the white ball is smaller with snooker.
In the good old days, going to the pub, bar, tavern somehow ended up with a good game of pool. The misconception of this game the past few years was that it is a game that people who drink alcohol play. Of course! They do but the Pool and Snooker virus has spread out to more than just the "beer drinker"
