In it’s 5th year of operation, Snooker Canada has taken another step towards bringing snooker back to the main stream in Canada. As a result of demand increasing in the Greater Toronto Area, the people at Snooker Canada have made the decision to have more presence by opening an office there.
“My brother and his family just moved to the GTA recently, and I thought it was a good time to make the move” said President & Founder, Patrick Guigui. “With the launching of our national tour, it would only be fitting to be closer to the action in the area and keep the finger on the pulse”.
The Richler Cup has received great feedback lately from Rogers TV, who continues to replay the finals on the airwaves, and will continue to do so a few more times this summer. Plans are also in the works for the production of more snooker events in the area soon.
Another positive step is that in a few weeks, when school comes back, Humber College plans to highlight the event to their 50 000 + students by playing it on their on campus television screens. In collaboration with Snooker Canada, the good people at Humber College also plan on promoting the event and the game, via their large social media platform.
That can only be a good thing for the next generation of snooker players, and Snooker Canada wants to be there to accommodate them when they have questions.
