2016 Snookerbacker Classic Launched

Entries are now open for the 2016 Snookerbacker Classic.

Snookerbacker Classic 2016Now in its fifth season, the UK-based amateur tournament continues to grow from strength to strength.

Previous champions include Martin O’Donnell, David Gray, Antony Parsons and this year’s winner Brett Miller.

Passionately run by the man behind betting tips website Snookerbacker.com, the SB Classic offers amateur competitors, both young and old, the opportunity to compete in a sizable tournament with fairly decent rewards.

This year there’s more than £12,000 in prize money on offer, with the likes of world champions Stuart Bingham and Steve Davis even on board as sponsors.

As in previous editions, entry for each event is £50, with the overall champion come the end receiving the tidy sum of £3,000.

Qualifying events will be held in Liverpool, Leeds, Gloucester, Glasgow, Derby and Preston, before the Grand Finals returns to the South West Snooker Academy in April.

It’s a shame that a heat could not be organised for Ireland but perhaps some of the players on the Emerald Isle will make the trip across the Irish Sea to take part.

The experience garnered for the younger players in particular is invaluable in the development of their fledgling careers.

The best of luck to all involved this season and I’m sure it’ll be another tremendous success.
