Postby roy142857

From Pontins website (with one or two extravagant claims!):

"Pontins are pleased to announce that the 2012 Lt. Col Walter Rowley OBE Junior Star of the Future will be staged at Pontins Prestatyn Sands from 10th to 17th February 2012.

The World’s most prestigious JUNIOR snooker competition will take place at what is recognised as the best multi-table snooker venue in the world. Budding snooker stars are invited to play at the venue which has played host to almost every player who has graced the green beige and our television screens over the last forty years, from Ray Reardon, John Spencer, Terry Griffiths, Steve Davis, Alex Higgins, Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, Ronnie O’Sullivan and many more. The snooker careers of almost every player who has become internationally known took off at Pontins Prestatyn Sands.
So why shouldn’t you be the next big name in snooker?

There will be two age groups in the competition this year. The junior group will be for competitors aged 14 years and younger, with the upper age group being for competitors aged from 15 years to 20 years."

[Format is round robin, best qualify for main knock-out competition, others play in plate competition]

"Successful players will be rewarded with cash prizes and trophies, so why not let your career start off at Pontins Prestatyn Sands where you will have the opportunity to play almost non-stop for a whole week".
