Stephen Hendry is widely regarded as one of the greatest ever snooker players and on Tuesday over a networking lunch hosted by the London Sporting Club, he regaled some of Alexander Charles’ staff and clients with stories from his career.
Best known for dominating snooker during the 1990s, he won the World Championship a (modern) record seven times and was ranked world number one during 1990-1998 and in 2007. Hendry has won 36 ranking titles, the greatest number of any professional snooker player.
The Scot spoke with charisma about his humble beginnings, describing how perseverance and practise led to his success. He also entertained guests with anecdotes about his famous rivalries with competitors Steve Davis, Jimmy White and Ronnie O’Sullivan. The lunch was a fantastic opportunity for heavyweights from the world of sport and business to network over drinks and canapes. Each attendee also received a dedicated copy of Hendry’s autobiography “Me and the Table” which describes further the life of a man who refused to give up on his dreams.
