THE Downtown Restaurant-sponsored doubles snooker tournament at the South Seas Club on Sunday has attracted big interest.

The elite players would be ranked in the competition with their partners drawn from the hat.

Among the elite players are former Fiji number three Nitesh Chand, former national veterans champion Philip Gock, Suresh Chauhan, Vinesh Prasad, Isireli Kaci, Tony Cen, Navneil Maharaj, Vikrant Sharma and Rajnesh Nand.

South Seas Club sports chairman Ajesh Chand said it would be interesting to see the pairing of the players.

Chand said the doubles format would spring many surprises.

"Most of the elite players participated in the national rankings tournament last week so we expect them to be in top form. After this the club will host a tournament sponsored by Amars Digging Works."

Sunday's tournament will start at 10am.
