EASB STATEMENT - English Amateur Championship Prize Fund
It has come to our attention that a mistake in the calculation of the prize fund for the English Amateur Championships was made on our website when the information for the Regional Qualifying Stages were advertised.
The prize fund had been based around all 170 entries paying £30 to enter, but in fact 34 of the entries were non-members and had paid £50.
We are pleased to confirm that this mistake was spotted by one of our officials, and we have revised the prize fund in line with the increased entry money available to us.
The total prize fund for the English Amateur this year will now be £3,340.00, rather than the £2,860.00 previously advertised.
The breakdown for the prizes is as follows:
RUNNER UP £550.00
LAST 16 £65.00
HIGHEST BREAK £90.00
A full breakdown of the accounts for the event will be published on the Last 16 players letters when they are available.
