Clay Snooker Explained

How to play Clay Snooker

The shooting is done in competition with pairs pitted against each other, the winner being the shooter with the highest score. As with table snooker, when each red is eliminated a color is chosen by the shooter right up until all the reds are downed. From then on the colors are shot in their normal color order. Just as in table snooker there is a tactical element in which they can choose easier clays and accept a lower score or chance their arm and go for a winning score wit the more difficult shots.

When the game is actually played, whoever goes first calls for a red followed by a nominated color. Miss the red and the color is void with no score given. If the color is hit the shooter is given the combined score the of the red and the chosen color. The second gun shoots immediately after the first until both shooters have had six pairs. At this point both guns move on to the colors.

Head-to-head challenge

A distinction is made as to whether the clay is downed by the first or second barrel. The real fun that snooker brings to shooting is the head-to-head challenge. If your opponent sinks a red followed by a black, the pressure is on you to keep in touch with his score. Should he miss his red or color then you are in a position to capitalize.
