JP’s Snooker & Pool Club junior player 14 year old Jack Hayley’s break of 71 secured him the £10 Tournament High Break prize.  Jack has impressed a lot of  league players this year with his rapid improvement and cool temperament and is certainly a player to watch for the future playing now off a handicap of -15.For those that didn’t manage success on the snooker tables, a chance to go home with a raffle prize still offered some consolation which this year included cases of Foster’s, Guinness, Stella Artois, Doom Bar together with bottles of red and white wine, a bottle of vodka, a bottle of prosecco, a selection of Easter eggs and boxes of chocolates.

Some photos of the event are on the SWDSL Facebook Page, and all trophies will be presented at the Annual Presentation/Finals Evening at Saffron Snooker Club.
