COORS SET TO SUPPORT 2009 NEWPORT POOL OPEN
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Coors Brewers (UK) Ltd have agreed to support the 2009 Carling Newport Pool Open and the Worthington’s Newport Doubles Open for a third year.
The competition was established by Neil Perkins of NDP Publicity Services in 2006 and has grown in stature each year.
Entries for both competitions opened this week and will close on Friday, July 3rd, with flyers and entry forms already being sent out to every pool-playing club and public house in the Newport, Gnosall and surrounding areas.
“We are delighted to support the Carling Newport Open and the Worthington’s Doubles competition,” said George Southall, account manager at Coors Brewers Ltd. “Pool is extremely well supported in the Newport area and this competition grows in stature every year.”
The Newport Pool League has been a success this season and event organisers are hopeful that all registered players will support both the singles and doubles competitions, in addition to new players and individuals who have not played league pool this year.
Rules are the same as previous years and the final prize fund will depend upon numbers entering each competition.
“I would like to think that we will attract at least 64 singles players and 32 pairs this year,” enthused event promoter Neil Perkins. “There are five weeks or so for players to get their names down, so there are no excuses for not seeing the forms!”
Entry for the Carling Newport Open will be £5 for the singles competition and £10 for the Worthington’s doubles competition. The draw for first round matches will be made on Saturday, July 4th and there will be around 18 days for each round of matches to be completed. Each match will be played over the best of five frames.
Home drawn players will again be permitted to choose the venue and away players will need to contact them to arrange the mutually convenient date and time of the fixture. Finals’ night will takes place in conjunction with a Coors promotion, on Tuesday, October 20th.
“It was like a dream for me to win the first Newport Open,” insists Paul Trevor, the 2006 champion.
Audco league player Colin Pink won in 2007 and Anthony Heathcote is the defending champion.
Andy Lycett and Anthony Heathcote won the first Worthington’s Newport Open Doubles competition, while Ian and Bob Perry are the defending champions.
