Shane Van Boening tries to keep his personal and love life private as he constantly gets media attention. As of this writing, his current relationship status is not known.

The player has not been previously engaged and doesn’t have any children. Rumor has it that he had one past relationship. 

Furthermore, the player likes to keep private matters away from the media and has not made any public statements about him being in a relationship.

Shane Van Boening Deafness

Shane has mastered the art of playing pool. However, you would be surprised to know that Van Boening has a hearing impairment and uses a hearing aid.

The player has been almost completely deaf since birth. This didn’t stop him from attending public schools instead of attending a specialized school for hearing impairment.

Because of his disability, he was picked on and bullied. But it didn’t stop him from being arguably the world’s top player.

As fate stands, Shane was meant to play the sport despite the odds that he is 97 percent deaf.

The deafness does not affect his pool ability at all. Rather he uses his disability to his advantage avoiding the distractions in the background.

As an 18-month-old, Shane used to watch his grandfather Gary Bloomberg, a trick-shot artist, and became enamored by the different colored balls.

Bloomberg knew that Shane was a natural talent as soon as his grandson picked up the stick.
