The 2015 Vimy Ridge Classic and 2015 Americas’ Cup will be held at the Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 club in Winnipeg, Canada between Saturday 27th May & Friday 2nd June. Some early matches will be played at a nearby legion club.
The Vimy Ridge Classic is a Level 3 World Ranking event with £2000+ prize money and full ranking points. It is played in the timed format and acts as a warm-up event for the main Americas’ Cup which is a Level 5 Major World Ranking event with £8000 prize money and double ranking points.
As last time, the Americas’ Cup is played on the single game, long-up format, replicating how the local players play in the Winnipeg Veterans English Billiards League.
