A New Game, A New Era For Snooker

Being billed as snooker's answer to Twenty20 cricket, Power Snooker is the brand new innovative game which is set to revolutionise the world of snooker, bringing a fresh, exciting new concept and a whole new audience to the sport.

The inaugural Power Snooker event will be broadcast live on ITV4 from London's Indigo2 arena on Saturday 30th October 2010 and will feature eight of the world's top snooker players.

Spearheaded by snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan, and endorsed by Barry Hearn, Power Snooker is a totally new experience.  As well as world famous snooker players such as Ronnie, World Champion Neil Robertson and Jimmy White all dressed in designer outfits there will be great music, lighting and special effects and the stunning female referees and sexy Power Girls will add to the glamour of the whole event.  The players are going to be mic'd up throughout the event on live TV, and audience interaction is going to be encouraged.

Created by Rod Gunner Chairman of the Innovate Group, Power Snooker is completely different to the traditional game.  It's a totally new set of rules; it's points and not frames that count and it's all against the clock.  

Rod says: "Power Snooker isn't about sitting quietly watching, it's about noise and interaction; feeling a part of it and enjoying yourselves. Because of its fast pace, and all the elements involved, the game will appeal to a much wider audience than traditional snooker, introducing a new and younger crowd."

Power Snooker is at the Indigo2 arena in London on 30th October.  There are two sessions; the afternoon session is between 1 - 5pm, then the evening session is 6 - 10pm, concluding in the Grand Final.  The full 8-hour event will be broadcast live on ITV4 and will also be covered by talkSPORT radio.

Power Snooker has partnered up with a number of top sporting related brands including Scotts, the designer fashion clothing and footwear store, Riley's the home of Pool, Snooker and Darts in the UK and talkSPORT, the radio station for men who like to talk about Sport.
