Still time to enter the PTC!

The 8th PTC of the World Snooker season will take place in Killarney on the 20th to 23rd of October and you can be there to compete in a World Ranking Event alongside the World’s greatest players. The PTC series opens up the tour to any amateur player that fancies a crack at the top pro’s and you can too by contacting the Killarney Convention Centre Box Office on the number provided below.

This superb event will see the amateurs play a pre-qualifying event on Thursday the 20th of October and over 32 will eventually get to compete in the main 128 Draw with the pro’s. Only one of the Top 64 players in the World will be missing from this event in Killarney and a superb amateur entry has already been received from the UK and further afield. 

Irish players now have their chance to join that superb field of players which should reach over 200 by the closing date of September 10th. So if you haven’t already entered then get your entry in quick by contacting the box office or contact David Joyce should you want any more details.
