Hi I’m Ryan. I have just recently joined the world disability snooker tour. In 2017 World Disability Billiards and Snooker became a member of the World Snooker Federation (WSF), the International Federation for snooker which aims to bring together amateur and professional snooker worldwide.

Both WDBS and the WSF work together to provide new opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in competitive, international tournaments for all. In 2020 several WDBS players were able to compete with the world’s best amateur players at the WSF Open in Malta, with leading players Daniel Blunn and Nick Neale both able to qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament.

As I am going to be entering the majority of competitions in the WDBS in the foreseeable future, I will be competing to be the world number 1 in Group 6B and looking to reach the semi finals and finals of each event, your organisation/company will be recognised on my waistcoat as we have a professional photographer who uploads pictures of each individual to the WDBS site and Facebook page.

I entered my first competition which took place the weekend of Friday 12th January in Woking, UK where I reached the semi finals getting beat 3-2 from a 2-0 lead. I already know my competition so with consistency and dedication I can and will be number 1.

Your company name would be stitched on my waistcoat for all to see 🙂

Thanks
Ryan

I have done well to get my name out there within the North West of England and am wanting to expand that now which I have already had a good start with a strong debut competition in Woking.
