The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) is today pleased to announce the launch of an all-new website ahead of the televised stages of the Betfred World Snooker Championship.
The modern and responsive website provides a wealth of information about snooker and billiards at all levels, from the WPBSA’s many sport development initiatives, to the household names that compete on the professional World Snooker Tour.
In recent years, the WPBSA Group has expanded its portfolio of activities significantly with the unprecedented support available to main tour players complementing its expanded role in developing the sport at amateur level.
The new website, developed by digital media agency INIT Creative, aims to showcase these projects to a wider audience and provide anyone looking to engage with snooker at any level with the means and information by which to do so.
The launch marks the first of a series of new websites to be unveiled over the coming months which will bring uniformity and establish a clear brand identity across the WPBSA Group.
Matt Huart, WPBSA Head of Communications said: “We are today excited to launch our new website which represents a key element of our online media strategy moving forwards.
“The WPBSA is responsible for the organisation of over 250 days of competitive tournament play outside of the World Snooker Tour each season and this new website will only help us to raise awareness of the many opportunities to engage with our sport. Whether as a player, a coach, a referee or an enthusiast, we can now provide the information to help you on your snooker journey.
“And of course, for fans of the professional game you can also learn much more about your favourite WST players, with new facts and statistics from the current season.”
Jason Ferguson, WPBSA Chairman said: “There is no better time to launch this new platform than right now ahead of our most prestigious event, the Betfred World Snooker Championship. The WPBSA, as snooker’s world governing body, plays a significant role in the global development and long-term sustainability of our sport, and following a complete overhaul of our operations in recent years, it important that we can get our message out there.
“Snooker is a ‘sport for all’ and we hope this information centre is enjoyed by all of our players, fans and friends around the world.”
