World champion pool player Chris wows hotel audience
A ' MAGICAL' EXHIBITION took place at the Metropolis Night Club in Whites Hotel last week when world champion pool player Chris ' the Magician' Melling came to Wexford in a bid to inspire more young people to take up the sport.
Young players from across the county got the opportunity to play with the champion and others, less brave, chose to stand back and simply enjoy the spectacle.
The 33-year-old Leeds man travelled to Wexford after the 147 Snooker and Pool Club extended an invitation to him. John Quigley, from the 147, explained that he is a member of the Mosconi Cup Team for Europe, which is the equivalent of the Ryder Cup for pool. The large crowd were impressed by his skills on the table and even more so by his trade mark 'trick shots'.
