Snookerbacker Classic Further Prize Announcement

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 12:02 pm

SB2015 A4 PosterIt’s only a few short months now until this season’s Snookerbacker Classic gets underway and this week I’ve managed to add once more to the prize pot, making this easily the most lucrative amateur snooker tournament in the UK.

I am delighted to announce that SB Classic partner Lake Creative Design and Marketing are becoming more involved in the tournament this season by stumping up the entry fees for all European Players Tour Championship events next season for the winner.

This means that not only will this season’s champion be £1500 richer, he or she will also have all their EPTC entry fees paid courtesy of Lake Creative, all they ask in return is shirt logo sponsorship for each event.

Andy Spilsbury, the Managing Director of Lake Creative who are also responsible for this season’s poster design said ‘We’re delighted to announce this sponsorship package for this season’s Snookerbacker Classic Champion and really look forward to giving the winner an extra helping hand in their snooker career. It’s a brilliant event and we are immensely proud to be involved as it continues to go from strength to strength’.

Lake Creative are an award winning design and marketing company based in Oxfordshire and Merseyside delivering high quality design and marketing solutions to a portfolio of national brands and campaigns.

More information about Lake Creative can be found here.

More information about this season’s Snookerbacker Classic can be found here. A reminder that the deadline for payment for all the events this side of Christmas is August 31st. There are still a handful of places left in a few of the events, details of how to enter are also included in the link.

Snookerbacker Classic February Venue Change and Order of Merit Update

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 1:18 pm

Given the popularity of the Snookerbacker Classic in and around it’s spiritual home of Gloucester I’ve decided to change one of the dates to accommodate all the players that want to enter down there.

Therefore I have changed the venue next February 21st and 22nd from Leeds to the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester. All players who have entered and paid for Leeds already have been informed and their places have been transferred to these events. You can find out everything you need to know about this season’s tournament here.

As with the event in Gloucester in November, the Saturday will be a 16 player event with one qualifier and the Sunday a 32 player event with two qualifiers.

This means that we see the return of the Order of Merit List and the player that tops this at the end of the tournament, who hasn’t qualified for the Grand Finals already, will take his or her place in the Grand Finals with the other 15 qualifiers. Full details can be viewed in the terms and conditions.

Contact me today to reserve a place in both events. Payment will be due by the end of October and they are likely to go quickly. To make sure you get one, use this page to forward payment.

Snookerbacker Classic Information Page

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 8:38 am

It’s all quiet on the snooker front at the moment with very little happening around the place until we set sail for Riga in Latvia for the opening EPTC of the season.

That means it’s a really good time for me to get everything set up for this season’s SB Classic and I thought it would be useful to place all the information about it on one handy page here.

The latest is that the opening three qualifiers are now full and that the first Preston heat and the weekend in Leeds at the end of November as steadily filling up too.

To reserve a place in any of the remaining events, details of which are on the information page, contact me today.
