Six time snooker world champion Steve Davis will headline a special charity night aimed at raising funds for North Notts Arena’s Junior Snooker Academy.
Davis lost probably the most famous World Championship final of all time against Dennis Taylor in 1985 and also scored the first ever televised 147 break.
Davis won his first major trophy in 1980, starting a decade of unparalleled success as he went on a total of 71 major titles.
Off the table, Steve has carved out a successful media career, owing in no small part to his ‘interesting’ persona. Steve has used his reputation to become a multi-talented sports pundit, radio presenter, commercials star, quiz show guest & published author.
After dinner, Steve uses his bone dry sense of humour to relive the highs & lows of a varied career.
The event will be the club’s fourth evening of entertainment with a sporting theme and will feature an informal night of great stories and comedy.
Raffles/auctions & any other monies raised on the night will go towards the Arena’s very successful Junior Snooker Academy, with doors open at 7pm for a 7.45pm start.
Tickets, which are selling fast, are only £15 & includes table nibbles.
Steve will also spend the afternoon with the Junior Snooker Academy offering tips and advice to the many promising youngsters who attend the academy every week.
The Junior Snooker Academy and Paul Hunter Foundation is very successful and attracts a minimum of 50 youngsters every week of the year, many showing great promise with 19 year old Ashley Carty the star so far.
The Arena eventually aims to have a player participate at the Crucible in the World Champs.
