Snooker in October

19:56:00 Ramona Dragomir 2 Comments


The autumn is here, the rain is knocking in our windows, but snooker is still kicking! :-) And it seems like October is going to be quite a busy month! First of all the Premier League will continue to delight us with its "tic tac" format, second of all the PTC/ EPTC events are about to kick off and last, but not least, let’s not forget about the Power Snooker event, which will give a new perspective to the world of snooker. Since the line up for all these events is not set up yet, you’ll see the "update needed" expression very often on the following schedule. But not to worry, my little snooker "termites" :-P, for as soon as the lists and the draws are set up, I’ll update the page and you’ll receive the information you need. So, don’t be a stranger and pay a visit from time to time, so you won’t miss what’s going on with snooker ;-)
