Snooker Coming to Barnsley!

Barnsley To Host Snooker’s English Open

Barnsley will stage a World Snooker ranking tournament for the first time in October when the English Open comes to the town.

The event will run from October 16 to 22 at the Barnsley Metrodome with 128 of the world’s best players in action, and tickets are on sale now.

The tournament was new to the calendar last season and staged in Manchester, with China’s Liang Wenbo beating Judd Trump in the final. Top stars including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, John Higgins, Neil Robertson and Shaun Murphy also competed for the Steve Davis Trophy.

And now it moves to South Yorkshire with a stellar field of the sport’s top players expected to enter and battle for the title. The English Open, televised live by Eurosport, is the first of the season’s Home Nations series and carries a top prize of £70,000.

And any player winning all four Home Nations events will also earn a massive £1 million bonus. So the champion in Barnsley will head to the next event in Belfast dreaming of that unprecedented prize.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: “We are delighted to bring a ranking tournament to Barnsley for the first time. We have staged various qualifying events at the Metrodome in recent years and we are sure it will prove an excellent venue.

“We know what fantastic support there is for snooker in the Yorkshire region, the county is very much a global centre for our sport as it also hosts the World Championship in Sheffield and the UK Championship in York. So we expect to see fans come out in their droves to support the English Open in Barnsley and make sure it stays in their town.

“With 128 players in action it really is an incredible chance to see so many of your heroes for the price of a single ticket, with value for money that you won’t see anywhere else in sport. Seats will sell fast though so get them booked quickly.”

Take advantage of a SPECIAL OPENING OFFER with all-day tickets to the first four days of the tournament costing just £10 each! This gives fans the chance to see a wide range of players on multiple tables throughout the day. This offer will not last long and is subject to availability. All-day tickets for the final cost £55 and they are expected to sell out rapidly.

Snooker Celebration at the Crucible

Please see attached press release from World Snooker.  Sounds like a fantastic event, and all for a great cause.  Chris

Six time World Snooker Champion Steve Davis is urging fans in the Sheffield area not to miss next month’s special show at the Crucible.

The 40th Anniversary Celebration of Sheffield’s World Snooker Championship will take place at the Crucible on Friday April 14th, starting at 6pm. Former World Champions and all of the players competing in the 2017 tournament have been invited, so there will be many famous faces among the crowd.

The show will be a mixture of live interviews with these green baize greats, and archive footage of the most memorable moments of the past four decades of snooker’s biggest tournament.

“It’s going to be a wonderful occasion,” said Davis, who retired from pro snooker last year, having won the World title in 1981, 83, 84, 87, 88 and 89. “It’s amazing to think we have been at the Crucible for 40 years – there have been so many special moments. This is the perfect way to celebrate four decades of snooker in Sheffield.

“Snooker’s relationship with the Crucible has always been quite unique and magical. I’m delighted that we’re staying in Sheffield for at least another ten years. But it’s something that local people should never take for granted. And now here’s the chance to see what will be a fabulous tribute to the past 40 years.”

Staged by World Snooker and Sheffield City Council, this show is a unique opportunity for fans to celebrate the sport and see the top stars in the flesh.

Book fast – tickets for this unique occasion will cost just £20. A donation from the ticket sales will be made to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

More Snooker on Freeview! China Open!

Many thanks to Eurosport and Quest for sending me details of this exciting news – spread the word!  Full press release below.  Great news for snooker fans – we now have the Home Nations and the China Open on Quest, a great selection of tournaments on BBC and ITV4 too.  Chris

snooker-on-quest

Quest and Eurosport will be simulcasting all live sessions of World Snooker’s China Open from Monday 27 March until Sunday 2 April 2017.  This is the first time that Quest will air this tournament and adds to the growing snooker inventory that kicked off with the Home Nations series in 2016.

The China Open is the longest-running world ranking snooker event staged in China, dating back to 2005 and was won by Ding Junhui, aged just 18, beating Stephen Hendry.  This proved to be a catalyst for the explosion of interest in snooker, which paved the way to make it one of the country’s most popular sports.  The tournament brings snooker’s elite to the Chinese capital to compete for the iconic gold shield.  Last year saw Judd Trump claim his second China Open title with a dominant 10-4 victory over Ricky Walden. This year’s prize pots totals an impressive £510,000 with the winner pocketing a generous £85,000. The tournament is the penultimate ranking event prior to the season-ending World Championship – the pinnacle of the snooker season.

Quest and Eurosport will be broadcasting every session all week, however Quest will air the final’s concluding session exclusively LIVE at 1230pm on Sunday 2nd April. Eurosport 2 will show full final highlights at 6pm. Commentary comes from 1986 World Champion Joe Johnson, former world number six Mike Hallett, David Hendon and Phillip Studd.

Live coverage: Mon 27 March – Sunday 2 April

1st session: 7am – 10am (except Monday which will start 7.30am)

2nd session: 12.30pm – 3.30pm
