‘No one enjoys playing in a bow tie’ - Mark Allen on snooker's need to modernise

Season 3, Ep. 4

Mark Allen claims no snooker player wants to play in a waistcoat and bow tie as he urged the sport to catch up if it wanted a slice of the youth audience. 


Professional snooker typically has a strict dress code – smart trousers and shoes, plus a long-sleeved shirt, waistcoat and bow tie – although it has been relaxed for some events, with the latter two items ditched for the Home Nations series. 


World number one Judd Trump has previously suggested the sport is "stuck in a rut" and said one solution would be to allow players greater freedom in the clothing department. 


The Break is presented by Andy Goldstein and produced by Ola Fisayo.
