The Flexi-Rest Joins Matchroom Stable

Matchroom Sport is delighted to announce that they have joined forces with Brighton-based inventor and cue sports enthusiast Des Morley to make his exciting new Flexi-Rest product the Official Rest at Matchroom Sport's roster of pool and snooker tournaments through 2007.

The Flexi-Rest is a modern and unique rest designed to solve all problem shots in cueing sports. The difference between the Flexi-Rest and all other rests is that the Flexi-Rest is not static.

It is flexible, enabling a player to bend the rest in-between, over and around any obstructing balls during the course of a game. The Flexi-Rest is bendable, but once in the required position, is also ridged enough to take the weight and power of a cue while executing a shot.

The Flexi-Rest makes its debut at the 2007 World Pool Masters taking place in Egmond aan Zee, Holland from 8-10 June.

It will also be used at September's World Cup of Pool, the World Pool Championship in Manila in November and the Mosconi Cup in December in Las Vegas.

In addition, the Flexi-Rest will be in use at the Premier League Snooker from September to December.

Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn said, “This is a great invention for both pool and snooker and in time I expect it to become industry standard.

“I'm also pleased to be backing a British inventor like Des who has clearly researched his market and come up with something genuinely innovative that will make a huge difference.

“Our pool and snooker events produce somewhere in the region of 200 hours of television annually and they are seen all around the world by millions of viewers. That is the type of exposure that the Flexi-Rest will be getting and I looking forward to being part of its success.”

Commented Des Morley, “I believe that my company's association with what are cue sport's blue ribband events will give the Flexi-Rest its greatest opportunity to establish itself as an essential global product.

“I'm look forward to working with Matchroom Sport over the coming year and very excited about the future of the Flexi-Rest.”
