Street Snooker shines at Queens Diamond Jubilee event
4 June, 2012
Young people celebrating the Queens Diamond Jubilee in East Peckham, Kent, enjoyed a memorable ‘Street Snooker’ workshop and competition on Monday 4th June 2012.
Once again, the positive outcomes and educational benefits linked to the patented ‘Street Snooker’ Games Wall were clear to be seen by all, leaving Parish Council members and young people delighted to be the first in Kent to own a permanent installation in their park.
By mixing the basic rules of snooker with football and handball, Playinnovation are on a mission to recruit as many players as possible and have already started the process of forming a national league system, which is aimed at raising self esteem in young people and encouraging key life skills such as personal goal setting and mathematics.
The top scorers registered throughout the country over the next 12 months, will be invited to compete in National Finals, which Playinnovation hope to hold at a lucrative premiership club ground.
The top scorer from the recent event in East Peckham was 13-year-old Ben Angelo, who expertly compiled a 73 break at the kicking version to win the coveted trophy, beating his cousin Johnny Phillips who scored a respectable 43 for the runners up medal.
Permanent installations are available from just £9,000 and workshop/tournament days from just £950.00
