A new snooker tour has been announced in Canada and is sure to create a great buzz for snooker players and fans alike. The Canadian Snooker Tour is officially coming, and it will be traveling to several cities across the country in just a few short weeks.
As a follow up to the busiest snooker season our country has witnessed in decades, Snooker Canada is changing gears and moving forward with its mission to make snooker more and more popular again here. With over $50 000 in prize money, this season should prove to give quite a boost for snooker and attract players of all ages and levels.
The nice thing about it is that Rogers Television was so pleased with how things turned out with the Richler Cup, they have expressed interest in doing more things with Snooker Canada and details are currently being discussed.
Some of the events that are in the works for the tour include a 6 Reds Canadian Championship, a 50+ Championship, a Team Championship, A North American Championship, a Junior Championship, many Provincial Championships, and of course, a new edition of the Richler Cup.
Snooker Canada is also proud to add fundraising events to its calendar, in order to be able to give back to Canadian communities. Charities are currently being explored to see where the funds will be properly allocated.
Best of all, a new ranking system will be created where players will have the ability to check their mobile phones or computers daily to see how they rank nationally. The top 32 players at the end of the season will receive prizes and special entries into the final event of the season.
More details will follow shortly on our website with a full schedule, looking forward to a fresh season!
