1994 World Eight Ball Under 21 Singles Champion: Quinten Hann
Born in 1977 in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, an only child came from a fractured household after his parents split up and his father disappeared. Hann first became interested in snooker when his mother bought him a snooker table for him to practice on, aged nine. This love for cue sports grew when a friend introduced him to pool, aged ten. Quinten then started playing pool at weekends in public houses, much to the annoyance of his mother. Brought to breaking point, his mother asked a local snooker coach to teach her son the game.
