J&S Trading to Sponsor Manchester Classic

World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) is delighted to announce that the upcoming Manchester Classic will be supported by J&S Trading, as the headline sponsor for the event.

J&S Trading is a company based in St Helens that specialises in recycling mobile phone parts and accessories. Operating for over 20 years, the business has worked with many international, national and local repair centres offering an outstanding service for its trade clients from small retail shops to multinational businesses repairing devices directly for the mobile networks.  J&S is currently thriving in the buyback broken LCD market within the UK and Europe, recycling over 250,000 pcs per annum.

The event, which will now be known as the WDBS J&S Trading Manchester Classic 2017, will be staged during 10-12 March 2017 at Q’s Sports and Entertainment Bar, Manchester. There will be competitions held for players from Groups 1-6 across the three days, with a Friday open day at which players with all disabilities are encouraged to attend and try snooker.

Simon Berrisford of J&S Trading said: “J&S Trading is proud to be sponsoring the J&S Trading Manchester Classic 2017. We would like to wish all of the players involved in this fantastic event the very best of luck. The future for snooker is on the up and it is great to see players of any ability, gender or disability welcomed by the WDBS and World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association.”

The J&S Trading Manchester Classic will be the first of at least five tournaments to be staged by the WDBS in 2017, following the announcement of the full calendar earlier this month.

With the support of J&S Trading, together with already-announced prize fund sponsors LITEtask, the PHMG Foundation and further supporters, prize money will be offered across all competitions. Further details will be released in due course as to how this will be distributed.
