Around the Academy:

Ronnie O'Sullivan

I'm Ronnie O'Sullivan and I'm the number one ranked snooker player in the world.

I'm going to pass on a few tips on the most important part of any snooker player's armoury - the grip.

Watch my masterclass

I prefer to keep the flat of the cue pointing to the ceiling.

This helps me to hit straight through the ball for a good strike.

Don't hold the cue too tightly, but don't hold it too loose either.

This will help you open the back of the hand to generate the power for the shot.

And hopefully you'll be racking up those century breaks in no time!
