Snooker stars return to town
1:00pm Saturday 16th June 2012 in Sport
FOUR-time world champion John Higgins will be battling it out on the green baize in Malvern as top level snooker returns to the town following a two-year break.
Higgins will take on Stephen Lee at the Forum Theatre when the PartyPoker.com Premier League takes centre stage on Thursday, October 11.
The Sky Sports event, in its 27th season, will also feature world number one Mark Selby against Chinese ace Ding Junhui.
It is the first time Malvern has been included on the 11-date calendar since being dropped following poor ticket sales in 2009, the last of three successive years at the venue.
The Premier League features 10 of the world’s best players splite into two groups of five with the top two in each group progressing to the semi-finals.
Each match is over six frames with two points for a win and one for a draw.
