Snooker speaker and professional player, Peter Ebdon, is known for his long-standing and prolific career taking part in some of the world’s most prestigious snooker tournaments. Now working as a sports speaker at specialist snooker and after dinner speaker events Ebdon impresses audiences with his industry insight, exciting anecdotes and practical advice on the game and life.
Throughout his lucrative career, Ebdon has garnered an enviable trophy cabinet gained over nearly three decades of playing. Beating former six-time World Champion, Steve Davis, within eighteen months of turning professional, Ebdon shot to fame as a fierce competitor and has since defended his reputation time and time again.
Peter Ebdon has won no less than four Open titles, including the British Open and Scottish Open tournaments in 2000 and 2001 respectively as well as winning the Irish Masters three years later. The most prestigious of his career titles came when he won the 2002 World Snooker Championships and got the top spot in the UK Championship in 2006. With a total of nine ranking wins and four none ranking wins, it’s easy to see why Ebdon is considered a champion of snooker.
Ebdon, whose numerous nicknames include Mr. Clean, The Force, and Captain Slow, is known for his considered and meticulous playing style, often taking considerable amounts of time to line up shots and breaks. He has a champion’s patience and determination. The unique playing style was developed, in part, to overcome the obstacle he faced being a colour blind player.
Outside his work as a snooker player Peter Ebdon has followed his other passion of singing and released two singles, one of which was a cover of David Cassidy’s I Am a Clown.
In his work as a snooker speaker, Ebdon details not only how to improve one’s game but also the importance of practice and deliberation in the sport. He is a popular and impressive sports speaker and always a popular choice amongst snooker enthusiasts.
