Ronnie O’Sullivan and Judd Trump will take their quick-fire snooker exhibition series to the Preston Guild Hall on Sunday 11th September.

The two stars of the game will face each other in six matches held across the UK, with the final event being held at the iconic Guild Hall in the autumn.

On the night, fans will witness a best of 11 frame match, with a 30-second time limit per shot, and no timeouts available.

Lakeside in Frimley Green, Surrey which is the home of the BDO World Darts Championship, will host the first match of ‘The Eleven 30 series’.

Last month, the Guild Hall hosted the World Seniors Championship and before that O’Sullivan played there against Jimmy White in a Legends Tour event.

Snooker has a rich history in Preston – the city hosted the UK Championships for just under 20 years.

O’Sullivan won the 1997 tournament and also won the UK in 1993, to become the youngest-ever winner of a ranking event, a record he still holds today.
