Twenty-three and counting. That’s Billiard champ, Pankaj Advani, for us.
India’s ace cueist Pankaj Advani added another glorious victory to his treasure recently by ousting Venkatesham of RSPB to enter the knockout round at Manisha- Vascon National Billiards and Snooker Championship.
Pankaj Advani is the only cueist winning World titles in all possible formats of Billiards and Snooker. He is the second Indian cueist to win IBSF World Snooker after O.B. Agarwal. Also, he is the second cueist after Paul Mifsud who has both titles (IBSF World Billiards and IBSF World Snooker) in his pocket. Pankaj Advani is second and only Indian cueist to have World Professional Billiards title after Geet Sethi.
Pankaj Advani Fulfils His Lifelong Dream
In January 2020, Pankaj Advani won millions of hearts by opening the very first chain of Cue Schools in India. After all his struggles and victories, this would be the best thing for billiards in the country. It was a brilliant initiative to bring snooker, billiards, and pool games in the category of sports played at school.
He added that now he has fulfilled his lifelong dream with the launch of the Cue School; it would help and train the little kids to be future champions.
Cue School By Pankaj Advani
Pankaj Advani is certainly India’s modern sports icon. He is not just leading the baize sports (pool, snooker, and billiards) in the country but is also working to bring change in the sports communities of India. Recently, he was also signed as Brand Ambassador by real-money online 8-ball pool game app, Pool King.
Pankaj Advani’s international achievements have been remarkable. Apart from that, he is also the recipient of the Arjuna award 2004, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award 2006, Padma Shri 2009 and Padma Bhushan 2018.
After going through a great struggle during his sports training and funding. He has taken the initiative to open a Cue School Academy in Bengaluru. It will not only support pool, snooker and billiards enthusiasts during their journey but would also train them from a very early stage. Cue School by Pankaj Advani would be India’s first chain of Cue Sports academies set up by Sports Masters at Top Indian Schools and Universities.
This idea to take the sport to schools would not just develop sports but would bring more laurels to the country. For now, Pankaj Advani has started this activity in his hometown Bengaluru. Soon, he plans to go pan India and introduce pool, snooker, and billiards in as many schools as possible. We are sure such initiatives at the grass-root level will give the school children great chances to play the game. With time, it will also help them to decide whether they want to take it up as a career or not.
