Cuestars has been running grass-root snooker tournaments around central southern England for more than 30 years.
But its undoubted success is a team effort: John Hunter (founder), tournament directors, referees, players, parents (and grandparents), coaches, clubs – and sponsors.
Without our wonderful sponsors, we couldn’t offer the prize money which attracts the players and helps them to compete in national and international competitions.
It costs just £100 to sponsor a Cuestars tournament. Please email John Hunter at [email protected].
