A new format has been adopted for the Thermo Tech Corporation-sponsored snooker tournament at the Lautoka Club this Saturday.

The three-member team event will feature different class of players.

A team will be made up of a super premier player, premier player and a non-competitive player.

Club snooker co-ordinator Suresh Chauhan said the idea behind the format was to attract and encourage new players to the sport.

He said the teams would be drawn from the hat.

"This tournament should prove interesting because the different class of players will be forming the teams," Chauhan said.

"There are many players who do not participate at the national events but are good in the sport. This will be their chance to shine."

Nitesh Chand, Philip Gock, Tony Cen and Vinesh Prasad will be among the super premier ranked players.

Players such as Nilesh Chand, Navneil Maharaj, Suresh Papi Singh, Aiyub Khan, Dharam Jeet Singh, Raj Mani Pillay and Husmukh Chauhan are the premier players.

The non-competitive players include Surya Narayan Singh, Suresh Mani, Daven Prasad, Feroz Khan and Vineet Gounder.

Levy for the tournament is $7.
