Abstract

Currently, Chinese billiards is developing particularly well in China, plus the billiards industry itself has a low threshold, so the billiards industry can be used as an employment direction for people with low education. This paper investigates and researches the educational backgrounds of the top 8 active international and nine world-class players in China, the abilities and incomes of active international players, and the analysis of the commercial marketization of the sport of billiards. It first discusses the commercial ecology of Chinese billiards and the advantages of its current development and promotion in China, and then discusses the educational backgrounds and incomes of professional billiards players. Finally, it analyzes the comparison of the status of international and domestic snooker and Chinese billiards. As well as the volume of non-higher education groups aged 15-22 years old at this stage and the necessity of the introduction of Chinese billiards, this paper draws the conclusion that the education level of billiards professional players is completely irrelevant to their career development. Combined with the current situation of junior and senior high school education in China, this paper finally concludes that billiards can be used as a useful supplement to the vocational education of young people.
