well, it's so you can play snooker at the same time ;) ;D                 I thought it would prevent the undersides from getting scratched.

Snooker is a game, not a sport. The difference (as noted in less enlightened times) is you can't easily smoke while playing a sport.

I'm sure cricket players could manage a cigarette.  ;D
Heck, I could have, when I was forced to play hockey. I just sat at the back of the goal. It would have helped to pass the time. ::)
