Snooker is a cue sport similar to pool first developed in the latter half of the 19th century by British Army soldiers. Players use a cue and white ball to pocket a set of red and green balls into separate corners in a specific order. Its popularity has grown immensely, leading to an annual World Snooker Championship each year.

 

Traditionally held at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England, the 17-day event brings together fans and participants from all over the world. The competition features roughly 100 players each year and an impressive crowd. Unlike American sports, spectators aren’t the raucous variety. A quiet calm looms over each match, except for maybe the occasional cough. In fact, talking can have you thrown out due to its effects on the players’ concentration. That’s not to say it’s a boring competition, though. Fans are definitely devoted.

 

Once the day’s matches are over, the crowd and players march to the nearest pubs for a party. Visiting the World Snooker Championship is a great opportunity to view a storied sport in England, while also exploring Sheffield. Be sure to visit Stanage Edge, Peak District National Park and Peveril Castle while in town.
