Climb aboard the Challenge Ladder

Climb aboard the Challenge Ladder

These are uncertain times and whilst many snooker clubs have re-opened (with restrictions), others still remain closed. Furthermore, local lockdowns or even a national lockdown remains a possibility over the coming months.

With this uncertaintly in mind, I am reluctant to plan any one day tournaments for the foreseeable future. However, I will be launching a new Challenge Ladder which will run from 1 September 2020 until 28 February 2021.

Having been alerted to Challenge Ladders by Tony Morgan (thanks Tony), I have researched the ones that have been run successfully and I believe that the format I have chosen is ideal, as it will allow players the flexibility to choose where they feel safe to play their matches and how far they are prepared to travel. Players can also take a break for up to 6 weeks at a time, should the need arise.

With the prospect of things coming to a halt at any time, for example, if the government were to force clubs to close their doors in the event of a spike in coronavirus cases, I have decided that the Ladder will be FREE TO ENTER and all prize money will be provided by Nottingham Snooker.

In the event that the Ladder needs to be suspended for a period of time, it can easily be re-started when it is safe to do so and the end date extended.
