Mainstream sports, the likes of cricket and hockey, have gained huge popularity in the Indian subcontinent over the last few decades. But the current sports world is limited to these alone. It is more important to promote the sport itself, rather than glorifying popular sportsmen. This is the main driving force behind RKG Snooker.

Not many of us know a lot about Cue Sports; it is an alien term even for the so called sports enthusiasts, who, in fact are basically nothing but mere fans of the gentlemen’s game. CueSports, are a wide variety of games of skill generally played with a cue stick, which is used to strike the cue balls and thereby cause them to move around a carpeted billiards table. Initially, the umbrella term was billiards. While that familiar name is still employed by some as a generic label for all such games, the word's usage has splintered into more exclusive competing meanings in various parts of the world.
There are 3 major subdivisions of games within cue sports:
• Carom billiards, referring to games played on tables without pockets, typically 10 feet in length, including balk line and straight rail, cushion caroms, three-cushion billiards.
• Pool, covering numerous pocket billiards games generally played on six-pocket tables of 7-, 8-, or 9-foot length, including among others eight-ball (the world's most widely played cue sport), nine-ball (the dominant professional game), ten-ball, straight pool (the formerly dominant pro game), one-pocket, and bank pool; and,
• Snooker and English billiards, games played on a billiards table with six pockets called a snooker table (which has dimensions just under 12 Ft. by 6 Ft.), that are classified in an entirely different manner from Pool, based on a separate historical development, as well as a separate culture and terminology that characterize their play.
