QUICK LOOKBACK ON SEASON 1

SnookerZone covered most of season 1 results as we focused on some of the talented players that DAZZLED and IMPRESSED in the first season of the 900 including some of the female players on the World Women’s Snooker Tour, including the likes of Emma Parker, Maria Catalano, Ng On Yee, Jasmine Bolsover et al who have managed to be picked for the TV stages for Season 2.

You can read all our stories about season 1 by going to the MENU BAR. 

The Snooker Legends 900 was a new concept of the game, with a frame being 15 minutes in length, which is 900 seconds. A 20-second shot clock is in operation throughout. It proved to be fast and furious.

ANT PARSONS scooped the inaugural  900 title victory over Martin O’Donnell in the £10,000 Grand Final.

Parsons, a former English amateur champion, had won six from six on the way to the Week 6 crown to earn a place in the final then saw off Alfie Lee, Andrew Norman and ultimately O’Donnell to claim the inaugural title.

This new 15-minutes, one frame style event delivered a new and exciting chapter for amateur snooker players globally.

Entry to The 900 was £50.  £2000 was up for grabs for the winner EACH WEEK.  £6000 PRIZE POT every week.

96 Amateurs appeared on TV, from Sept 19th. £55,000 prize pot in total.

Good luck to all those involved in the TV stages, coming soon.
