Judd and Luca play for Kika

14 May 2017 No Comment

Judd and Luca were yesterday, 13 May 2017, in Belgium, at Luca Brecel Snooker Academy to play an exhibition in support of Kika, a charity that supports children with cancer and their families since 2002. It was a great night: Luca won the exhibition match, playing very well indeed. Grove has a long history of supporting Kika since top referee Jan Verhaas and snooker blogger Annet Van Riel organised the first “Kika” snooker event in the Netherlands back in 2012; at the time Judd and Ronnie O’Sullivan had offered signed cues for the auction.

The event made it to the local TV news. Here is a link to a small article, and a video featuring both players, playing and being interviewed.

This is translation of the article:

Snooker fans were spoiled in Maasmechelen on Saturday evening. Indeed Luca Brecel was there playing an exhibition match against Judd Trump, from Britain, no less, the n°3 in the world and also one of the most spectacular player on the circuit. The mztch was organised by Brecel’s father to help a 3 years old boy suffering from cancer.

The evening was a great success and here are a few pictures:

You can read more about Kika on their website … it’s in Dutch though.
