We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Vimy Ridge Classic and 2015 Americas’ Cup will be held at the Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 club in Winnipeg, Canada between Saturday 23rd & Friday 29th May.
Those of you who attended the inaugural event there in 2013 will know what a great event the Canadians organised for us, and it has become the yardstick by which our other events are measured.
These events will follow on from the European Open which takes place in Ireland, finishing on Wednesday 20th May, allowing any travelling players two days to get from Ireland to Canada before the start of the Vimy Ridge Classic on Saturday 23rd.
The Vimy Ridge Classic will be a Level 3 World Ranking event with £2000+ prize money and full ranking points. It will be played on the timed format and act as a warm up event for the main Americas’ Cup which will be a Level 5 Major World Ranking event with £8000 prize money and double ranking points. As it was last time, the Americas’ Cup will be played on the single game, long-up format, replicating how the local players play in the Winnipeg Veterans English Billiards League.
