Bringing sports on your coffee table!

Mainstream sports, the likes of cricket and hockey, have gained huge popularity in the Indian subcontinent over the last hundred years and more. But the sports world is limited to these alone. More important than promoting popular sports, is to promote sports itself. This is the main driving force behind RKG Snooker. RKG Snooker in India is promoted by Ravindra Kumar Gupta.
RKG Snooker is a world Class Cue Sports dedicated website which provides up to date news of the Cue Sports from around the World along with interesting sections like history of the week, player’s birthday article, blogs, latest ranking and other related data. The foundation has been responsible for taking Cue Sports to greater heights in India and Abroad.

Cue sports, also known as billiard sports, are a wide variety of games of skill generally played with a cue stick, which is used to strike billiard balls and thereby cause them to move around a cloth-covered billiards table.
