Following a three week break since the Shanghai Masters qualifiers earlier in the month, professional snooker returns this week with the second event of the 2015 Kreative Dental European Tour, the Paul Hunter Classic.
Always one of the most popular and well regarded events on the calendar, evoking memories of the three-time Masters champion and fans favourite after whom it is named, this year the winner will also become the recipient of a brand new trophy, supplied by Waterford Crystal.
The exquisite trophy sees the names of the 11 previous winners of the event dating back to 2004, starting of course with Paul himself and ending with last year’s winner Mark listed on its front. Above the roll of honour is the logo of the WPBSA, as well as the title of the event.
Waterford Crystal are renowned for their glass products and have previously supplied trophies for prestigious sporting events including tennis, cricket and Formula One. They also produced the trophy that is still awarded to the winner of the Dafabet Masters, which appropriately was also first won by Paul Hunter back in 2004.
