The game of Snooker was invented over a century ago at the Ootacamund Club. A notice in the billiards room explains that Colonel Sir Neville Francis Fitzgerald Chamberlain of the British Army shouted “snooker” (the word for a junior cadet at the Officers Academy at Woolwich) when his opponent failed to pot a ball, one rainy afternoon at the Club. Soon he and the other players developed first official set of rules of the game in 1882.
