He competed at the 2018 World Snooker Team Cup representing China with Zhang Jiankang but they lost to India 2–3 in the Round of 16.[3]


Fan has a very unusual technique. He is very left-eye dominant, and when playing the shot, his cue is to the left of his head. He has been coached by Roger Leighton.[4]
