    is : "any plans for snooker?" a correct sentence?
    or "any plans of snooker?" a correct sentence?

    Actually, neither is a sentence, since they both lack a verb. As Elz says, you would hear the second phrase.

    "Any plans for snooker?"
    ... like "Anyone for tennis?"
    ... is an elliptical sentence.

    Depending on context, it may be representing "Have you any plans for snooker?"
