As of 2014, world-class professional snooker player Peter Ebdon resides in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The 2002 World Champion lives with his wife, Deborah, and children, Clarissa, Tristan, Ethan and Ruby May.
According to Ebdon, with the family loving its previous visits to the city during holidays, the move seemed natural. In justifying the move during an interview with Global-Snooker, Ebdon points out that drugs and crime in the city are relatively non-existent, and the schools and quality of life are fantastic. When asked about the adjustment of living in Dubai while primarily competing in his native United Kingdom, Ebdon explains, “It is difficult at times no question, but the positives easily outweigh any negatives."
