Hendry And Davis To Pot Balls In Weymouth


11:31am 15th July 2013

Weymouth 'Cues' itself up to host two of the biggest names you've ever heard of in the Snooker World.

Six times World Champion Steve Davis and 7 times title holder Stephen Hendry will be part of an evening of entertainment and snooker at Snookes.

Wessex FM spoke to Mark Cottingham who owns the sports bar and members club. He told us what people could expect from the evening, "They quite like it when the people watching give a bit of banter as well, it's a comical evening as well as some very good snooker being played. They'll be a Trick Shot Show by Steve Davis who is a former World Trick Shot Champion."

He added that the evening offered locals a chance to actually play with one of the champions, "They will play each other in a Best-of-Seven Challenge Match, and then later on people from the audience will get the chance to get picked out to partner the two players up and play some pairs!"

Pro referee Michaela Tabb will also be over-seeing the evening.

Snookes are selling tickets now for the event on the 20th of January, 2014.

Tickets are £30 or there's a VIP ticket for a higher price.
