The organisers hope this new shorter format played on Irelands Inter Club 6-Ball Snooker Tour will be a exciting playing format for all players and venues to enjoy, hoping to replicate the success of the Twenty-20 Cricket when they introduced a new and exciting playing format to there game and turned out to be a major success and plans have been made by the World Professional Snooker body to try out 6-ball snooker events…..
