Aimee (9 Postgate) continues to progress in her chosen sport of Snooker
At the beginning of January 2016 , Aimee took membership of the English Association of Snooker and Billiards (EASB). This is the Governing Body of Amateur Snooker and Billiards. The EASB host many competitions for the top amateurs in the game throughout the year and Aimee has already entered and played in the regional Under 16's. This was a very brave achievement as she was not only the only female out of a field of 25+ entrants, but she was also the most inexperienced player, having only played for the last 12 months.
On 14 February, Aimee will return to the Northern Snooker Centre for the EASB Regional Under 14’s qualifier, along with three other juniors from the Menstone Academy. She has also been invited to join in the Festival of Snooker at the Northern Snooker Centre, held over 5 days at the end of March.
Well done Aimee!
