Exactly four years ago today, on January 17, 2015, I won the Union Club Men’s Snooker Tournament. After 9 hours on my feet! (The more you win, the more you have to play.) That day, there were sixteen competitors, most of whom were 20-40 years my junior. In 2015, I was 86 years young.For those of you who aren't familiar with Snooker, it's different from pool. The tables are much longer.
A few months later, in the summer of 2015, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. (See my post about this, here.) But, luckily during my recovery period, I was able to continue playing regularly.
Then last March I had a “smash hit” (a fall, at home) and suffered a compression fracture of a lower vertebrae. This made it impossible to play Snooker or Billiards for six long months, but in September we started again, and we play 3-4 times every week. It’s wonderful exercise, also for the ‘little grey cells’.
