Blast from the past … Tenball

Although I’m far from being young, I’m quite “young” when it comes to snooker. I only “discovered” it in 2004/2005. Until recently, I never realised that, during the 90th, quite a lot of “variant” events were tried and shown on television.

One of those variant games was Tenball. You will find more about this variant, and the 1995 event on wikipedia.

One lover of the game has uploaded footages (VHS rips) from this event… quality is what it is, but it is nice to see those big names of the game in action 25 years ago! They were so young!

Something to savour in this time of snooker starvation!

One thought on “Blast from the past … Tenball

  1. Great footage, enjoyed it immensely 🤩.
    And yeah, those were the days – them being so young it reminds me of the passage of time especially for myself 🙃.
    Again thanks Monique, take care and stay safe 🙏
