"The standard of play this season has been phenomenally high, and alongside the team from Wyldecrest we're looking forward to a great week of snooker."

I am sure the players will rise to the occasion of this highly prestigious tournament and give snooker fans present and watching on television the thrills and excitement they have come to expect."
