WPBSA Snooker Podcast | Best of British for Bond in 1996

Home » WPBSA Snooker Podcast | Best of British for Bond in 1996

The first season of the WPBSA Snooker Podcast continues as we revisit the 1996 British Open and one of the most dramatic finishes to a ranking event final in history at the Plymouth Pavilions.

Host Michael McMullan is joined by Nigel Bond – the player who dramatically potted the final black to lift his maiden crown – as well as Phil Yates who was in the commentary box for Sky Sports.

We take a detailed look back at the tournament itself, as well as the key moments from the surrounding months during a memorable season at the height of the Stephen Hendry era, as new stars including John Higgins, Ronnie O’Sullivan and Mark Williams began to make their presence felt.

We also celebrate Nigel’s incredible 33-year professional career, a reflecting on his finest moments and looking to the present day as he continues to play an active role in the sport through his role at WPBSA Players and as part of the WPBSA Coaching Delivery Team.

The WPBSA Snooker Podcast is available now via Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and YouTube.
