AS the closing date approaches for the entries to the 'Shooters Sponsored' Cork Open snooker championship, the names are flying in for the seasons finale for snooker in the 'Rebel County'.
Shooters are looking forward to welcoming people from every club in Cork and from any of the of the other counties, Nationwide.
There were some rumours that this would be an invitational tournament, those rumours were incorrect anyone who plays the game is welcome along to Shooters snooker club in Blackpool on Saturday the 28th of April to compete in this event.
John Paul Crowley, the owner of Shooters said “We have everything in place for the 'Open' and we are ready to welcome all the snooker fraternity along to our club for this very special occasion. I know it was back in the 1980's when the last Cork open was held, its hard to believe that was over thirty years ago, so now that it is back we want it to be a very special re-introduction of the event and I am sure that the snooker will be of the highest quality. There will also be a plate arranged on the day, but we will let the players know about that on the day of the Open”.
The closing date for entry into the '2012 Shooters Cork Open' is this Friday and entries should be submitted to John Paul Crowley, Cork Billiards and Snooker Association (CBSA) Secretary Tim Murphy or CBSA Chairman Derek O'Neill as soon as possible.
