IN THESE days of mass communication, finding information is easy. Or is it? The problem is that there is so much of it out there. It’s hard to see the wood for the trees.
Players in the know can visit the EPSB website or the Cuestars website or any one of the other snooker organisations or rely on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram or probably some other social media platform that I’ve never heard of.
But what if you don’t know where to look? And what about things like Pro-Ams and club competitions? Luckily for us, a snooker fan from the little village of Skinburness in Cumbria had the solution.
Michael Waring started SnookerHub back in 2015 simply to help amateur snooker players find tournaments to play in.
The son of a teammate had just been promoted to the EASB Premier Junior Tour but struggled to find other events to enter. He relied on text messages from other players.
Michael likes what Cuestars is doing and features our events on his website.
He told cuestars.co.uk: “I really admire Cuestars because I can see you guys do it for the right reasons – for the love of the game and not for the money.
“The success you have had is down to your hard work and I’m sure the players are appreciative of that.
“Keep up the good work!”
The 64-year-old is chairman of the Carlisle & District Billiards & Snooker League, finds billiards “a much more interesting game than it looks” and loves snooker as much as when he started playing about 40 years ago.

SnookerHub is sponsoring the second leg of the Cuestars Seniors (40+) Tour at Jesters Snooker Club, Swindon, on Sunday, September 5.
