2017 Nations Cup & 2018 European Championships

Well folks, a fantastic 2017 European Championship in Bridlington has come to and end. Along with another great spectacle of Blackball Pool and meeting with friends old and new we had a large Scooter rally on the first day of Week 2 and the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire cycle race on Finals Day, both assembling outside the Spa Arena, both wonderful sights indeed. In between we had weather warm enough for a spot of sunbathing and believe it or not some players even had a friendly snowball fight on Tuesday night. With the World Snooker Championships taking place not to far away in Sheffield some players took advantage of time off to go down and watch a bit of the action. Just another fortnight at the office in Bridlington !!

Dates for the next two EBA events have been confirmed as follows. More details to follow as we get them
