Carrom is an indoor table game played on a square plywood board with a wooden border frame on all sides and netted pockets in each corner

Popularity
Carrom is yet to become a household name, but there are professional carrom tournaments and there are thousands of serious carrom players which are helping to spread its popularity.

Location
There are a handful of carrom clubs located in the UK - in Lincoln, South Wales, Thames Valley, West London, Croydon and Sussex.

Age
Carrom is a game that can be played indoors by players of all ages.

Ability
The most important thing to develop in carrom is a shooting style. You have to flick the striker - no pushing is allowed. It is essential to make sure you strike accurately to prevent accidentally hurting your finger.

Description
Generally speaking, two or four people can play carrom. If two, the players sit opposite each other, while with four, the opposite two are partners. As an exception, though, you can play with three players against each other for points. The object of the game of carrom is to sink all of your carrom men, using the heavier 'striker', in any of the pockets before your opponent. Your turn continues as long as you keep sinking your carrom men.

Dedication
The object of the game is to get all your pieces into the pockets before your opponent does. To do this you flick the striker with one of your fingers so that the striker hits any carrom piece so that at least one of your pieces falls into a pocket. Whoever plays first, or breaks, is always white. Shooting styles are very personal - whichever 'grip' works for you is fine as long as you 'flick' the striker and don't push it.

Cost
Carrom boards cam be bought from around £40 upwards, depending on the quality of the board.
