Well, what a year…

31 December, 2020 | By: Purple | Permalink

…and thank gawd it’s over, frankly! It’s been an incredibly difficult year for many people, and 2021 feels like it’s going to be a continuation of these trying times, but the most important thing is that we all stay safe and sensible.

Being at home a lot, and not being able to attend snooker tournaments, has been very odd for us, but we’ve understood the restrictions and are hoping to go to many more places once things are back to normal, whatever that normal is. We did manage to get to our first ever session at the Crucible in August (the first session of the final), and have been bitten by the Crucible bug, buying tickets for the entirety of Round One next year (again, whenever and however it goes ahead). We’re gutted that the Shootout will be behind closed doors this season, as it has sentimental associations to it for us, but it is what it is. (Not going to be the same by a long chalk, though!)

We have met and made friends with so many lovely people through snooker, and hope to continue to do so when we’re all allowed back in! A huge thank you for all the fun, friendship and love shown to us this year, and always. We’ll meet again…

Best wishes to you all for a healthier, happier 2021. xxx

    Great to hear from you girls…..Aye, what a rubbish year but I hope that you are keeping well and I look forward (hopefully) to seeing you on my TV screen at some of the snooker journeys next year.

    Best wishes.

    Hello girls. Are you at The Crucible watching the Higgins v Tian game. Think I’ve seen you in the crowd.

      We’re not there today, but we are going to one session of the first semi-final, Covid clearance permitting, of course!

    My apologies ladies. My eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be. Hope you manage to get up to Sheffield to see some snooker during the Championships. I’ll be looking at the spectators to see if I can see you. I might have my new specs by then!
