Have you heard of Cue School? Launched in January last month, Cue School is an initiative by celebrated billiards champ Pankaj Advani that will take billiards and snooker to schools and help little kids be future champions.
Indian billiards and snooker player who has been a 19-times world champion, Pankaj Advani is extremely passionate about the sport and has finally fulfilled his lifelong dream with the launch of Cue School Academy.
The recipient of the Arjuna award 2004, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award 2006, Padma Shri 2009 and Padma Bhushan 2018, Pankaj is a modern Indian sports icon leading baize sports (snooker and billiards) that aren’t audience or corporate friendly. Nevertheless, his international achievements have been stupendous.
The ace cueist who has struggled for training, funding and support all throughout his sporting career has set out to do what is highly commendable – launching Cue School Academy. Cue School is India’s first chain of Cue Sports academies set up by Sports Masters at Top Indian Schools and Universities.
