Is the Barry Hearn Honeymoon Over?

I was reading through a number of blogs this morning and came across this post by Dave Hendon (of Snooker Scene and Eurosport fame), the post Trouble in Paradise deals with the growth of snooker since Barry Hearn took over the sport.

Whilst for the fans and, in some respects, the players it is a massive step forward in terms of the number of tournaments available there is always a negative side to this development.

Hendon interviews top 16 player Stephen Maguire in the piece and it is very interesting to read the thoughts of one of the games top players.

Whilst I won't go into detail about the content of the post what I will say is that it is important to get the balance right, yes of course there needs to be more tournaments and global expansion is good but players personal expenses need to be taken into account.

One way of fixing this may be to 'bundle' the Asian events into a 6 week block saving the players massive travel expenses.

Anyway read the post on Hendon's blog and let me know your thoughts.

Cannon Cue and Case Deal

Last Christmas and New Year we were offering a special deal on the Cannon Azure 3/4 Jointed Snooker Cue.

Only 100 of these cues were ever made and at the time we had 40 of them. As it is now pushing towards Christmas 2011 I enquired to see if any were still available from the original batch and low-and-behold there were 9 left - just 9!

So for a limited time only we are offering the Cannon Azure 3/4 Jointed cue with a brand new Peradon Hard Case, 3 pieces of chalk and a Supafile tip file for the same great price of just £69.00

These are very limited so it is key that you get in nice and soon on this one!

We have spent some time looking at our pricing structure for the Cannon range of snooker and pool cues. Taking into account discounts that we can now receive from the manufacturer we have been able to dramatically reduce the prices on these items starting today.

You can now pick up a Cannon Tornado 2 Piece Snooker Cue for just £33.00 including VAT and UK mainland delivery.

We will continue to look at our pricing over the coming weeks and see if there are further reductions that we can make in the current financial climate.
