All correct ('kabbadi' is the spelling I have seen, but near enough).

Snooker was invented by British soldiers in India. 'Snooker' was a term used for soldiers arriving who were new to the region, but became a word used to describe anybody new to something over time and somehow got associated with the game. Probably when somebody new to the game played a particularly bad shot, "I say Carruthers, you're such a bally snooker!"!

Bonus point if anybody can name the retired competitor I mentioned taking up dressage.
Are you talking about a horse perchance?
