FORMER snooker world number one Mark Selby took time out of his hectic schedule at the Metrodome to hit the bowling lanes this week.

Selby was in the town as the Metrodome hosted qualifiers for the World Open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Fans were able to attend a World Snooker event in Barnsley for the first time since the Covid-19 crisis.

The venue had been a regular on the World Snooker circuit in the past, including the 2017 English Open which was won by Ronnie O’Sullivan.

A spokesperson for the Metrodome said: “Mark Let the good times roll as he knocked down the pins and had a blast before his snooker game.

“Whether you’re a bowling pro or a first-timer, it’s all about having a blast together.”
