MOLSON COORS (UK) BREWERS SET TO SUPPORT
2010 NEWPORT POOL OPEN FOR FOURTH YEAR
- Fusion Hair and Beauty to support new Newport Women’s Open
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Molson Coors (UK) Brewers have agreed to support the 2010 Carling Newport Pool Open and the Worthington’s Newport Doubles Open for a fourth year.
Newport’s Fusion Hair and Beauty will also back a new Women’s Open, with the eventual winner receiving a full makeover at Catrina Roche’s Newport High Street salon and a prestigious new pool trophy.
The concept of the Newport Pool Open competition was established by Neil Perkins of NDP Publicity Services in 2006 and has grown in stature each year.
Entries for all three competitions opened this week and will close on Saturday, July 3rd, with flyers and entry forms already being sent out to numerous pool-playing club and public house in the Newport, Woodseaves, Hinstock, Market Drayton, Stafford, Norbury, Gnosall and surrounding areas. Anyone can enter provided that home matches are played within a seven-mile radius of Newport.
“We are delighted to support the Carling Newport Open and the Worthington’s Doubles competition,” said Miles MacDonald, account manager at Molson Coors (UK) 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 resounding success this season with a capacity 16 teams and event organisers are hopeful that all registered players will support the singles, doubles and women’s 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, 32 pairs for the doubles and at least 16 female players for the Women’s Open this year,” enthused event promoter Neil Perkins. “There are around seven weeks or so for players to get their names down, so there are no excuses for not seeing the forms!”
Entry for the 2010 Carling Newport Open singles competition will be £5, £10 for the Worthington’s doubles competition and £5 per entrant to the new Fusion Hair and Beauty Newport Women’s Open.
The draw for first round matches will be made on Monday, July 5th 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 at the Royal Navy Club, Bellman’s Yard, Newport, on Wednesday, October 20th.
“It was like a dream for me to win the first Newport Open,” insists local snooker player Paul Trevor, the 2006 champion.
NRBL league player Colin Pink, from Hinstock, won in 2007, Newport’s Anthony Heathcote etched his name on the trophy in 2008 but lost out to Stafford’s Brendan Ruttledge in a tense final last year.
Andy Lycett and Heathcote won the first Worthington’s Newport Open Doubles competition in 2007. the local father and son duo of Ian and Bob Perry clinched the trophy in 2008, while Pink and North Shropshire-based Mick Manning won last season.
