CHESTER snooker fans are in for a treat as two titans of the game prepare to play an exhibition match in the city.
Former six-time World Championship finalist, Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White, is to take on current world number 20 player, Ricky Walden, in a challenge match at newly opened The Q Bar, in Volunteer Street.
And four lucky fans will win the chance to take on The Whirlwind for a frame each when he makes his special appearance, on August 7.
Chester-born Ricky Walden, 26, now based in Bagillt, Flintshire, is co-owner of The Q Bar and will be freshly back from a three-week tour of the Far East to take part in the event at his training base.
A limited release of 140 tickets is available for the special event, with a raffle and auction to be held to decide the four would-be challengers who will win the frame of a lifetime against White.
Lee Gorton, Ricky Walden’s manager and partner in The Q Bar, said: “It’s great for Chester’s snooker fans that Jimmy has agreed to come and play a challenge exhibition match against Ricky.”
