SnookerZone: Where We’ve Been and What’s Coming?

Snooker

It’s been 61 days, (roughly just under nine weeks since SnookerZone has been in operation!

In that time, the website has interviewed ten snooker coaches in the Coaching Zone. Reviewed some top products in the Equipment Zone, and tested out some top training aids in the Training Zone.

On the Zone blog, we’ve interviewed two great players so far on the World Women’s Snooker tour and the World Disability Snooker tour.

We’ve also covered the Guangzhou Billiards Exhibition to which the website is now featured on their media page. Over the coming weeks (and months) the Zone blog intends to interview more players on the amateur tours.

These include the WLBS tour, the WDBS tour, the EASB tour, and, the World Seniors tour, and any other tour SnookerZone can find. To find out what’s going on on the amateur scene, go to the great SnookerHub, here!

What’s Coming Up Soon

SnookerZone will be reviewing a Training Aid all the way from Australia!

We’ll be reviewing more products for the Equipment Zone.

And we’ll be reviewing some more books including Stephen Hendry’s new book Me and the Table!

In the meantime, read SnookerZone’s new review of the TSF snooker tip, here…

David Lilley Kicks Off EASB Snooker Season on English Amateur Tour 1

Aspiring professional David Lilley kicked off the English Association of Snooker and Billiards’s English Amateur Tour at the weekend with a win up in Leeds at the Northern Snooker Centre. 

The tour runs throughout the season with six events, with the winners seeking FREE entry to QSchool – that’s if they don’t turn pro before that!

Last season, Joe O’Connor won an incredible four out of the six events then went on to scoop the English Amateur Championship at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester.

Lilley was also the proud leader of the highest break of 110 with Simon Bedford hot on his tails with a 103.

Last season’s semi-finalist in the English Amateur Championship Jamie O’Neill came close on three occasions to making a ton – 97, 96, and 91.

Lilley defeated William Lemons 4 – 3 in the final.

The EAT runs between the Star Snooker Academy in Sheffield and the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester from now till March.

Joe O’Connor and Harvey Chandler made it onto the professional circuit last season, who will it be this season?
