Student practices on cue


Waitaki Boys’ High School student Healey White is all set for the World Under-21 Snooker Championships in Beijing.

The 17-year-old is now training up to six hours a day and is ready to pit his skills against his age group’s finest.

“I’m confident and excited, I just can’t wait to get there and give it my all,” he said.

White will return on July 21 to compete in the New Zealand Men’s Snooker Championships in Auckland.
