Pink Ribbon 2012 - Details Announced

The South West Snooker Academy has announced details for the 2012 Pink Ribbon Pro Am, the biggest charity snooker tournament in the world. The amateur qualifying days will be 6-8 June with the 32 seeded professionals joining the tournament on 9-10 June.


Following the success of the first two year's events, this year is set to be even bigger and better. Thirty-two of the World's leading Professionals will be in the draw alongside hundreds of amateur, junior and lady players from around the World.

Amateur players can enter the event twice, and will be placed in opposite halves of the draw. This provides real value for money for less experienced players who will get at least two matches and be able enjoy the great atmosphere of the event.

The whole event is sponsored by MIUS, with a guaranteed £10,000 prize fund.

All proceeds from the event are donated to Breast Cancer Charities, and the target is to exceed last year's total of over £10,000 raised.

The event is played on the World Snooker Star Tournament tables at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester.

The event provides a rare chance for amateur players to play alongside, and even against, their heroes from the professional world, as well as playing on the fabulous tournament tables.

For players and spectators alike, there are opportunities for photographs, autographs and to mingle with the professionals and to see some top quality snooker as well.
