Lenny Baker Claims Tuesday’s 900 Snooker…

LENNY BAKER came through Tuesday’s fast and furious 900 Snooker. 

The 42-year-old from Folkstone, rolled on through a tough group to go into Wednesday’s final session, on at the usual time of 10PM on Sporty Stuff TV and online.

The highlight of Tuesday evening was the appearance of World Disability Snooker star David Church – representing the first disability snooker player to appear on TV in an amateur event.

Church, a two-time Disability Champion from Norwich, was buzzing on social media as he was about to compete down in Reading for the 900.

He tweeted beforehand…

SnookerZone has interviewed in the past both Church and one of his sponsors, the sports coach Matt Andrews, who is well respected in snooker.

Matt Andrews tweeted…

The 900 continues to give a wide variety of players the chance to compete on TV and gain experience of TV snooker conditions.

David Church wrote on Facebook…

Unbelievable Day yesterday Playing in the Snooker Legends 900. Thank you to Jason Francis for inviting me and making me feel so welcomed and for making me feel like a player and not being there cause I’m disabled but a good player, I think I did myself justice and played a good game but Lenny Baker was the better player , I wish him all the best great player great guy thankyou.

And players have not disappointed in providing high drama to snooker fans late into the night. 

Going since September 19, the 900 has already provided drama, talking points, both on and off the table, as well as former professional Lee Richardson’s taste in unusual shirt combos.

The snooker has been tasty too!

Lenny Baker, going into the 900 was a 20/1 shot.

With £6,000 per week in prize money “The 900” is the biggest thing to happen on Tv for Amateur Snooker in years.

It will see 25 nights of live snooker on Sporty Stuff TV broadcast Monday to Wednesday every night.

The eight weekly winners will then contest the Grand Final on November 16 in a one-off special.
