The CBSA (Chinese Billiard and Snooker Association) has published this article about Ronnie on their official site.
In short, Ronnie is expected to arrive in Beijing on March 25, and will take part of an “Open Class” that will be streamed through the Superstar Online application. This is part of a project that Ronnie supports: the goal is to offer information and education, including streamed “live” classrooms and events, interviews and articles about snooker through an online application. This of course makes a lot of sense in a country as vast as China.
I had a chat with Nancy, here in Scunthorpe, during the World Seniors WC, about this application. It’s only in early stages still but the idea is definitely interesting. Superstar online works with professionals and translators to make their app as interesting AND multilingual as possible. Right now however it’s only available in Chinese.
Here is the (google) translation of the article:
