Ronnie O’Sullivan is the most famous name in World Snooker, and now the Rocket has shown his appreciation for one of his favourite snooker venues, Potters’ near Yarmouth.
Potters and Premier League hosts Matchroom Sport hope to lock in a fifth play-off event on the Norfolk coast next year, and three-times world champion O’Sullivan admits he hopes to return to Norfolk too.
O’Sullivan told the Yarmouth Mercury that ìItís a brilliant venue to play in and the Potter family are just fantastic people. Every time we come here we get treated fantastically, the crowds are brilliant, everyone gets well supported and this is one of my favourite venues to come and play at as it’s not too far from me either, so I love it here. Maybe I’ll spend some holidays here.”
With such a glowing report from one of world sport’s biggest stars, the future for snooker on the east coast seems assured.
