Gary Norman

Gary has been involved in cue sports for over 35 years as a player, and sports administrator. He took up the game of snooker at the age of 9 and started playing in local leagues from the age of 12. Gary has made in excess of 300+ snooker centuries, making his first at the age of 14, with a highest break of 145 made when he was 21 (and a 2nd time at the age of 40 v Mark Housden).

After ‘falling out of love’ with the game of snooker, Gary turned his hand to billiards at around the age of 25, primarily at local league level and during the formative year’s of the Amateur Billiards Circuit. He gave up cue sports completely at the age of 30 to focus on his career, and by his own admission ‘didn’t miss it one bit’ until being coerced to play again by one of his work colleagues some 5 years later (Keith Miller has a lot to answer for!).

Regenerated but 20/20 vision fading, he played a few seasons of local league snooker before once again turning to Billiards, and now relies on contact lenses to play the game.

A former Chairman of the Peterborough & District Snooker League, Gary joined the management team of EBOS in 2006.

Gary plays with an ash Peall record break 16oz cue, and uses a Mike Wooldridge pressed tip.
