Reventon HAT TRICK Snooker Series

Reventon Snooker is very proud to announce the birth of a brand new event to the Aussie snooker calendar.

The Reventon HAT TRICK Snooker Series is a new, non-ranking, knock-out event which will exclude the top 16 ranked Victorian and top 32 Australian ranked players.  These events are designed to give everyone a fair go as well as encourage new faces to our beautiful game.

Reventon Snooker would also love to see a healthy entry of female and junior faces participating in these events, so please spread the word and bring the kids along.

Three events are scheduled throughout the year, the first kicking off on March 1-3. Two other events are likely to be scheduled for May 31-June 2 and then Aug 16-18.

There will also be a Blue Ball SHOOTOUT at each event, which has also proven to be a lot of fun!

See attached entry form for further information or get in touch with REVENTON SNOOKER on their Facebook page if you have any questions. https://www.facebook.com/events/682855972148785/

Note: The draw will be limited to the first 64 paid entrants.
