Champion: Roxton Chapman
Runner Up: David Causier
WBL President Roxton Chapman defeated the current world no.1 ranked player Dave Causier in the final of the LITEtask UK Open at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds at the weekend. In what can only be described as a remarkable outcome to this event the 1999 UK Professional champion managed to outwit some of the leading players in the game despite having been in almost total retirement from billiards for something like 5 years.
The UK Championship has a history dating back to 1934 when Joe Davis first won the title. The event was resurrected by the late Jim Williamson in 1979 after a gap of 28 years, and following another hiatus since the early 2000’s it is again back on the billiards calendar, this time as an open event. We have recently restored the original WPBSA trophy (last won by David Causier) and following the overwhelming success of the revived event this year we plan to make this prestigious tournament a permanent fixture on the calendar.
