Royal London Watches Grand Prix
I am really looking forward to the qualifying
stages of the Royal London Watches Grand Prix
next week in Prestatyn between September 30th and October 4th.
For the first time ever qualifying will be
in the round robin format.
I have to play seven best of five frame matches over the five days,
with the top two qualifying for the final stages.
This new format will be very interesting, playing so many matches over such a short time.
I am delighted that World Snooker have secured another sponser
for a major ranking event with Royal London Watches sponsering the Grand Prix
with a lucrative deal over the next three years.
Please check in "LATEST"
for the draw for my group and the dates and times of my matches.
I feel snooker has turned a corner the last year or two and fully expect more tournaments
and more sponsors to come on board in the near future.
