Another 12 months has passed by as we prepare to say goodbye to 2016 in snooker.
It was an entertaining year which produced countless moments of magic, comebacks, breakdowns, emotional victories and painful defeats.
Over the last few days we took a look at some of the highs and lows from this calendar year, while also reflecting on an incredible 52-week period for world champion Mark Selby – the undisputed player of 2016.
It has been a groundbreaking year here at SnookerHQ too.
Fittingly, this post represents the 366th of 2016 – one for each day of this leap year.
This level of activity has brought a record number of hits, almost 50% higher than in 2015, with visitors to the site coming from just shy of 150 different countries around the world.
To all of you readers, I offer my sincere thanks. Without this continued level of growth the website would not be nearly as fulfilling to maintain.
Much appreciation too goes out to those who helped to contribute to SnookerHQ in 2016 – most notably Jonathan Williams, whose regular “Sniper’s Snippets” feature on Irish snooker remains hugely popular, and German enthusiast Frank Halfar.
Let’s hope 2017 can be even bigger and better.
