Snooker star Mark Davis will be in competitive action for the first time in 2015 over the next two days.
The St Leonards potter will line up in group three of the Championship League invitational event today (Monday) and tomorrow alongside six of the sport’s top players.
World number 19 Davis will face Judd Trump, Ricky Walden, Ryan Day and Marco Fu this afternoon and this evening before taking on Stuart Bingham and Ali Carter tomorrow afternoon.
All matches will be played over the best of five frames, and the top four players after the round-robin stage will go on to contest the semi-finals and final tomorrow evening at Crondon Park Golf Club in Essex.
The eventual winner will progress to the winners’ group, while the other semi-finalists and fifth place finisher will go on to group four. Those finishing sixth and seventh will be eliminated.
There are seven groups in total, and the first two men through to the winners’ group are Barry Hawkins and Matthew Selt.
