Maciu Malo
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

SOME of the country's former snooker champions will battle at this weekend's Fiji Sangam Snooker Classic in Sigatoka.

The list includes New Zealand-based Sanjay Kumar and Canada-based Feroz Khan who will battle against other top local players during the three-day meet.

Tournament organiser Rocky Ali is also inviting local players to be part of the meet.

Ali said the tournament would aim to expose new talent and promote the sport at the grassroots level.

"This competition will not only attract top players but will also introduce new players," he said.

"The presence of former national champions such as Kumar and Khan will lift the standard of the game.

"It will be interesting to witness the battle between these former champions as they match-up against our local boys."

The winner will walk away with $300 while the runner-up will receive $100. He said those interested in participating are required to pay a $20 registration fee.

The competition kicks off on Saturday.
