Ronnie O’Sullivan set to play in UKPTC3

Ronnie O’Sullivan plays his first tournament of the season at South West Snooker Academy, Gloucester

All the World’s top sixteen elite snooker players are amongst the 90 professionals competing in World Snooker’s UKPTC Event 3 at South West Snooker Academy in Quedgeley between 7th and 9th September 2012.

World Champion Ronnie O’Sullivan will play his first competitive match since lifting the World title in Sheffield last May.

China’s Ding Junhui appears in a PTC event for the first time this season.

Amongst the host of stars are the winners of Events 1 and 2, Stephen Maguire and Martin Gould, as well as some of the legendary figures of the sport including Steve Davis, Jimmy White, Ken Doherty and Tony Drago.

World number one Mark Selby, fresh from victory in Germany, will be attempting to win his first PTC at Gloucester, while Judd Trump will be aiming to please his army of fans from Bristol by adding another victory.

Also from Bristol is Andrew Norman, the recently appointed Operations Manager at South West Snooker Academy.

Norman took the Paul Hunter Classic in Germany by storm, reaching the quarter finals before losing out on the final black of the match to Joe Swail, having previously knocked out Ben Harrison, Nigel Bond, Ricky Walden and Phil Barnes.
