Although the first cue sports originated in the 15th century, one of its most popular variants was invented only in 19th-century India among British soldiers, when English officer Sir Neville Chamberlain established the first set of rules. Nowadays, Snooker is popular across the world, with the World Snooker Championship being held each year since 1927. It is played at a rather big table (6 ft. x 12 ft.) with 22 balls and six pockets. One ball is white and used as a “cue” ball. Players use the cue ball to knock the other 22 into pockets in the correct sequence.
