Competition Time: Win Tickets to see Snooker Legends in 2010

Over the last few months I have posted about the upcoming Snooker Legends tour which will see legends such as Alex Higgins, Jimmy White and Cliff Thorburn remind fans of why they were so popular back in the 1980’s. Well today I have some exciting news to bring you as thanks to the guys at Premier Promotions, one lucky winner will receive two tickets to watch the legends in action at a venue of your choice (subject to availability).

Click below to find out more about the events and how you can win…

The Prize

So to confirm, the winner will receive two tickets to the venue of their choice (subject to availability), while two lucky runners-up will receive a photo signed by their favourite legend.

Note that tickets for the Crucible Theatre event are NOT available.

How to Enter

To win two tickets, all you have to do is correctly guess how many frames of snooker will be played at the Crucible Theatre this year. The closest to the correct amount will win the top prize while the next closest guesses will receive the runners up prizes. In the event of more than one person getting it spot on, a winner will be drawn at random.

To enter please send both your answer and your choice of venue (see the list below), to me via email or by leaving a comment below.

The closing date for entries is the 16th April 2010, ie the eve of the World Championship, while a winner will be announced shortly after the conclusion of the tournament.

The Legends

Its 28 years since Alex Higgins captured the hearts of the nation by winning his second World Championship here in Sheffield.  His last appearance at the Crucible was in 1994, now he’s back to give his fans one more chance to see the Hurricane blow again.

Cliff Thorburn’s World Championship victory in 1980 made him a national hero in Canada and endeared him to millions of fans in the UK. In 1983 he achieved the first ever 147 in the tournament. In 1983 Cliff was awarded the Order of Canada.

Darling of the crucible Jimmy White is still undoubtedly one of the most popular faces in World Snooker.  Still competing on the main tour, and now carving out a name for himself in the new 6 red format of the game, he still commands a full house wherever he plays.  Jimmy was awarded the MBE for services to snooker in 1999.

John Parrott is familiar to millions as a regular BBC Snooker commentator, horse racing pundit and as a former captain on ‘A Question of Sport’. However the 1991 World and UK Snooker Champion is also a 3 time European Open Champion and appeared in 20 consecutive championships at the crucible from 1984 – 2004. His last appearance in the main championships was as recent as 2007 where he made the quarter finals. In 1996 John was awarded the MBE

John Virgo, ‘JV’ himself, will also be on hand as compere, host and will also entertain the crowds with some trick shots. John himself is a former UK Snooker Champion.
