Who is Billy Castle?Married with three children, Billy is an inspiration to his family, and his son, Billy James, is now learning how to pick up a cue, just like his dad! Being born in Southampton and now living in Reading, Billy Castle first picked up a cue after visiting snooker clubs with his dad as a child. He continued to pursue his passion by setting up a junior snooker club in his home town of Southampton, before becoming the first professional to have graduated from the renowned junior section at Chandlers Ford Snooker Club, leaving as the three-time Eastleigh & District Under-18 champion. Aged 29, Billy Joe Castle has been playing the sport for over 20 years. He became a professional snooker player in 2017 after winning the six matches in the Q-School Tournament, leaving his job as a landscape gardener behind to fulfill his dream; earning a two-year card on the World Snooker Tour.
