The South West Snooker Academy, at Gloucester has become a ‘Honey Pot’ attracting players eager for a taste of what it’s like to play snooker under world class conditions. One of the WEBSF main aims is to facilitate opportunities for its members to realise their dreams and aspirations. One such aspiration was realised this past weekend when the WEBSF took the Gold Waistcoat Tour to the Academy. Fast running cloths, responsive cushions and tight pocket openings prove unforgiving of a less than perfect technique and lapses in concentration. With a full days snooker ahead of them mental stamina would also play an important part in whittling the field down to two players to compete in the final. Andy Neck, from Newton Abbot and Paul Standen from Braunton proved worthy of the challenge and met in the final. Click here for the outcome and more details on the Gold Waistcoat Tour.

Thanks to all at the SWSA, Gloucester who made everyone welcome and provided sponsorship for the event. A special mention for EASB Referee Nick Harry for his exceptional show of stamina to officiate for over 13 hours on the day!

This time 100% of the entry fees went as prize money!
