Picture Perfect: World Games 2013

While it was an event which for the majority of snooker fans will likely have flown somewhat under the radar, the 2013 World Games event won by India’s Aditya Mehta in Cali, Colombia, was an event of some importance for snooker and the WPBSA’s continued efforts to strengthen snooker’s hand on the world stage.

One man behind this push in particular is WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson and when I caught up with him at the recent Bluebell Wood Open tournament in Doncaster, he was kind enough to provide me with a selection of his photos from the event for PSB.
