World Snooker’s Event Director Katie Oldfield said: “We are making a range of innovations to the Home Nations Series this season including a new dress code for the players, a new Snooker Radio service, and the FanZone at the venue.
“This is all about improving the fan experience for anyone who comes to the venue and wants to enjoy the whole occasion as well as the snooker itself.
“Fans of any age can come along and find out what our sport is all about, and the free coaching is a great chance to improve your game or get children playing snooker for the first time. We hope the Home Nations events this season will be a fantastic day out as well as the chance to see the very best players in the world battling for big titles.”
