WPBSA Snooker Podcast | History for Hendry in 1999

Home » WPBSA Snooker Podcast | History for Hendry in 1999

This year marks 25 years since Stephen Hendry made history by becoming the first player to win the Cazoo World Snooker Championship on seven occasions and today we reflect on the tournament and much more with the return of the WPBSA Snooker Podcast!

Following the pilot episode launched earlier this year which covered the 2001 Masters won by Paul Hunter, today’s all-new episode marks the first of a six-week run which will comprise the debut season of the podcast, with episodes to be released every Monday.

Michael McMullan is at the helm once more and is joined by fellow snooker broadcaster David Hendon who was working on the 1999 World Championship for the WPBSA at the time, as well as two-time ranking event winner Joe Perry, to recall his own memories of a tournament which saw him stun six-time Crucible champion Steve Davis in the opening round.

As well at the tournament itself, the trio discuss the build-up to the tournament, as a new generation began to firmly establish themselves upon the sport following Hendry’s dominance in prior years, the early development of snooker in China and much more.

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