The season starts here

The weekend of 16/17 September sees the start of the EASB season with the VIA Creative Masters Tour and the Premier Junior Tour.

These two events are at the opposite ends of the age range of today's amateur snooker with the cream of the nation's under 21s competing in the Premier Junior Tour, while the best of the over 40s start their campaign to prove they have still got it!

Both events will provide nominees for international events and in the case of the Premier Juniors, a potential to earn a main tour card.
