General Info

Snoohoo! is an index of snooker pages on the Internet. The index includes both main pages and subpages to make info easier to find, e.g. "Jimmy White Snooker Site" (main page, Homepages), and "Jimmy White Snooker Site: A to Z" (subpage, Fun & Entertainment). Almost all items carry short descriptions to ease the selecting process. When a page is not in English, the language is specified. The links are divided into three main categories:

The Action
Stuff regarding the active playing of the game, including news & results, pictures and tournaments.
The Game
More about the theory and playing environment, including equipment, rules & history and instructions.
The Net
The rest, including general snooker homepages and other snooker indices.

All of these categories contain a number of subjects, e.g. "Pictures", "Software", "Homepages", etc. Subject categories have also been divided into separate subcategories when appropriate.
