Venue:                 Saffron Snooker Club, Saffron Walden, Essex. CB11 3AQ

Date:                    Sunday 23rd March 2014

Time:                    1.00 pm – 6.00 pm

A unique opportunity for local snooker players of all abilities to play a handicapped frame of snooker against a World Snooker professional – or simply come along and watch – and support a great local charity.  You can turn up on the day or pre-book your frame by contacting Saffron Snooker Club on 01799 513094 or via email saffronsnookerclub@btconnect.com.

The cost per frame for Juniors is just a donation of £2 to the Charity, Adults is £5 donation per frame.

The event is open to all, don’t worry if you don’t have a snooker cue, we have one you can use.

To add a bit of spice this year, all challengers will be given a handicap when they play the professionals based on their highest break.  Anyone that beats the pros will go into a draw at the end of the day for the chance to win a cash prize of £50!

On the day there will also be a raffle with top prizes, including tickets to a World Snooker tournament, complimentary use of holiday chalet on the Norfolk coast for a week, free snooker coaching sessions,  snooker related prizes and much more.

The pros will be playing between 1.00 and 3.00 and again between 4.00 and 6.00.  In between there will be some fun ‘pay and play’ competitions (clear the colours in the fastest time – that sort of thing), and of course the draw for the raffle prizes.

A licensed bar, soft drinks, tea, coffee and food will be available all day.
