Bendigo to host World Snooker Tour event
THE world’s best snooker players will travel to Bendigo this July with the state government yesterday announcing the city had won the right to host Australia’s first ever World Snooker Tour event.
The Australian Goldfields Open will take place in Bendigo between 18-24 July 2011, with a three-year deal signed to stage the event.
“Snooker is going global like never before,” said Hearn.
“We also have new events in Thailand and Brazil within the next few months, plus many more in the pipeline.”
Australia produced its first world champion when Neil Robertson claimed the crown in 2010.
