Ryan Hopkinson Makes the England Under 23’s Team
28 June 2018
EMS are delighted that Ryan has made one of the 3 available spots to qualify for this year’s England Under 23’s Pool Team. Ryan will be representing England in the European championships next year in Bridlington.
EMS has been supporting Ryan in his ambition to become a professional pool player, sponsoring him as he takes on the IPA tour – one of the biggest for blackball pool in the UK.
Ryan is looking forward to the next event of the IPA tour, he said
“I am full of excitement for August as the IPA tour returns to Coventry. In the last event I had a great run getting to the last 16 from a 140-man field, which I was very proud to achieve in my second ever event on the tour.”
“My progress has continued to grow due to the sponsorship given by EMS, the events I am able to enter and play on the biggest stage of pool is something I could not have done myself.” He goes on to say,
“I feel very privileged to have got through the trial to represent England on a national level, I am with a great bunch of lads in the U23’s and the squad is looking very strong. There is a bit of time off until the European Championships next year at Bridlington, but I can’t wait to get going with everyone and hopefully bring back some silverware with the England team. That would be one of the best of feelings!”
Bethan Martin, Marketing Assistant at EMS said “We are thrilled for Ryan! This is a fantastic opportunity for him, providing the perfect stage for him to showcase his talent and progress his professional career.”
We want to wish Ryan the best of luck in his next IPA event in August!
