We are pleased to welcome a new contributor to Cues n Views, The gentleman in question is a former World Billiards Champion, top sixteen Snooker player, ITV commentator and summariser and Eurosport commentator. This gentleman's credentials go back to the great days of Billiards, he has even been supported by the legendary W J Peall and has rubbed shoulders with Joe and Fred Davis as well as making the first century break at Snooker ever seen on television.
I will keep you in suspense no longer; I am proud to welcome our newest contributor to Cues n Views, a tireless supporter of Billiards, Mr Mark Wildman.
As a footnote; Mark's other achievements include being World Professional Billiards and Snooker Chairman. He has a high break in competition of 497 and has a high practice break of 764 and as a boy he won the British Junior Championship and the Boys Championship and in the process played at the hallowed Burroughes and Watts Hall in Soho Square, London.
