10 years of Pink Ribbon

PinkRibbon2019Poster

This year will be the 10th time that the Pink Ribbon Pro-Am Charity tournament is held in the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester.

Paul Mount lost his beloved sister Kay Suzanne to this terrible disease, and since 2010, he organises this fantastic tournament to help raise awareness about how breast cancer can be prevented, or at least detected early enough to be cured. The money raised goes to charities that help sufferers and survivors.

Players at all levels are welcome, and amateurs can enter twice, certain to compete in both sides of the draw. It’s always played in fantastic spirit.

Ronnie won it in 2015

That year, Darryn Walker, an amateur, reached the semi finals in both sides of the draw, and had he been able to beat Ronnie in the semi-final, would have played the final against himself! Everything can happen there! Quite incredibly, Ronnie and Darryn had shared a room, when competing as juniors but hadn’t seen each others in years. Never seen opponents babbling and laughting so much during a match!

Enter, or come along to watch! You won’t regret it!

It’s a great event for a great cause.
