Snooker Stars to Play in Exhibition Match
Jimmy White and Tony Drago, top pros in the sport of snooker, are going to be playing an exhibition match very soon at the South West Academy which is located in Gloucester. The match is set to take place on October 12th and it will be the first to take place on the arena table at the Academy.

There will be four hundred tickets for fans to purchase to be able to attend the event and they will go on sale next week. There have been about sixty pros that have played or practiced at the academy since it opened which was about two months ago.

Paul Mount the owner of the Academy commented: “These players love to play in front of crowds. Having them here and getting them to show off their skills to people who enjoy snooker is important for the success of the academy.”

Mount went on to say that he hopes the match will help promote the spot in the area. He commented that the league has been struggling for the past few years and they are trying to build the sport back up. Mount commented that it would be nice if local clubs would put more effort in holding local tournaments.
