…The WEBSF 2017-18 Season starts now

After a very successful 2016-17 season, we have had a very busy summer seeking various opportunities to help develop and grow our activities across the region.  We would like to thank all our participants and volunteers for their continued support last season and look forward to seeing what the new season brings.

The new sponsorship opportunity has brought about a number of positive changes to our events this season as detailed below:

The Bronze Open

  • The event is open to any amateur player that will be under 17 years of age on the 31st August 2017
  • The entry fee is £10
  • Everyone playing in the tournament will leave with something
  • There will be a number of billiards and snooker coaches available to give coaching and advice. In addition, there will be a current and ex-professional player on-hand to provide photo opportunities, play a frame or two and share their experiences of being a professional.
  • Free coaching and advice will not just be available to the players in the tournament but to anyone who wants to improve their knowledge of the game or is thinking of taking up billiards or snooker

The Gold Series

  • The prize money available for each event has been increased
  • £100 is available at each of the six events for anyone who achieves a 147 break – if more than one person achieves this rare feat, the prize money for that event will be shared. If a 147 break is not achieved in a Gold Series event, the £100 prize money will be allocated to the end-of-season Gold Masters event
  • There will be a guaranteed highest break prize of £30 at each event for both qualifiers and non-qualifiers
  • The entry fee for each event is £20 (in addition to a one-off £10 annual WEBSF membership fee)

‘The Gold Masters’

  • Players who finish in the top 16 of The Gold Series at the end of the season will be eligible to play in this knock-out tournament
  • The tournament will end with a professional exhibition which will be open to the public. The professional will also be on hand for the presentation of trophies
  • This will be a ticketed event with food included in the ticket price
  • The Gold Masters event will aim to bring together members, supporters and the public to enjoy top quality snooker
