Win: VIP tickets to see Ronnie O’Sullivan

THE Mercury is today offering readers an exclusive chance to win two VIP tickets to see arguably snooker’s most popular ever player during a one-off exhibition match.

Ronnie O’Sullivan will be heading to Weston’s Allstars Sports Bar on October 14 in a nine-frame challenge match against exciting Maltese cueman Tony Drago.

The event - supported by the Mercury, Vauxhall and cider manufacturer Thatchers - will be refereed by the renowned Michaela Tabb, and also feature a trick-shot exhibition by Drago and a chance for spectators to join the stars in a doubles match.

It will be the first time Rocket Ronnie - a three-time snooker world champion - has played in Weston, and Allstars owner Peter Wallington says he is anticipating an exciting night at the Regent Street club.

Pete said: “We are very proud to have organised this event at Allstars. Ronnie is one of the biggest names in snooker and to bring him, along with Tony Drago and Michaela Tabb, to our sports bar is quite an achievement.”

The event could have a big impact on a good cause too, with one of the sponsors, Vauxhall, promising to donate a �10,000 car to Against Breast Cancer if Ronnie manages a 147 maximum break.

Pete added: “This is a superb twist to the evening and we are hoping Ronnie can do the break for such a worthy charity.”
