Mark Watson, who presents our Snooker Club podcast alongside Stephen Hendry, has loved snooker since his childhood in Bristol. We asked him all about his passion for the sport… Mark, how much was snooker a part of your childhood?I’m slightly too young to have clear memories of Taylor-Davis in 85, but I do remember my dad telling me next day that Taylor won – “the one with the funny glasses.” I had this idea that sport was a late-night thing, even on a school night, it was a massive loophole. In my teenage years, I had a basement bedroom with a tiny telly, which I plugged my Commodore Amiga int ..read more

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail? Every player has his own methods and habits during the few hours before he enters the gladiator’s arena. We asked a few of them how they get ready for that moment when they are introduced into the arena. What’s your routine before a match? Judd Trump: Usually I’ll arrive at the venue an hour before the match and then I’ll practise for nearly all of that time, to feel as sharp as possible. I will never go out there unless I have practised for 30 to 45 minutes. I need that to warm up, that’s really important for me. Then I’ll usually just chat to my brother unti ..read more
