Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White Comes to Dishers Pool & Snooker Club!

Snooker legend Jimmy White visited Dishers in Crewe in March earlier this year, he became the first snooker hero to step through the doors of Dishers Pool & Snooker Club.

Jimmy proved to be a very popular choice selling out on both nights for his pool exhibition and meet and greet with customers and fans from all over Cheshire, some had travelled even further.

Jimmy played 50 frames of pool over 2 nights against locals and die hard fans of his and I have to say it was simply awesome to watch. Jimmy,  who had been practicing hard for the World Snooker Championship Qualifiers in April and doesn’t normally play pool showed just why he has reached 6 World finals in the larger cue sport discipline, he has a tremendous cue action and excellent cue power within cue sports and although pool being the easier of the two, he didn’t hold back showing us all the sort of shots he was capable of.

Lyndsey Roberts owner of Dishers Pool & Snooker Club in Crewe said “It really is great for all my customers and the people of Crewe, Cheshire and surrounding areas to see and meet such a legend, it was an opportunity of a lifetime for most and one that people will remember and treasure forever! Jimmy was such a nice person to deal with and I can’t thank him enough for coming to Crewe and putting on an amazing show for us all! Jimmy also donated a signed cue and collectors item framed photo for a great friend of mine who couldn’t make it due to suffering from cancer and for that I am truly grateful as I know this act of pure generosity made a very special person to me very happy, this act of kindness shows the sort of person he really is”

we would like to thank The Beer Trading Company for their continued support during all special events run at Dishers!

Jimmy will hopefully be back at Dishers in 2018 so stay tuned on Dishers Pool & Snooker Clubs facebook page and website.
