Tschirhart’s $60 000 Table Used in Finals
Cue the excitement! Rack ‘em up!
Tschirhart’s Custom Billiards of Vienna, Ontario is pleased to be a part of the prestigious 2015 Richler Cup. John Tschirhart, owner of Tschirhart’s Custom Billiards, is supplying a table to be used at Canada’s largest snooker tournament. John and his company hand craft spectacular snooker and pool tables. The business has been in operation for more than thirty years. The custom made table to be used at this year’s Richler Cup is valued at $60,000.
John Tschirhart is excited about the prospect of showing off his handiwork on a national scale. “It is a great privilege to work alongside Patrick Guigui and Snooker Canada in making this year’s Richler Cup a great success,” says Tschirhart, adding “It is especially an honor to provide my best Custom World Class snooker table for the finalist to compete on for this prestigious title. I see a great future for The Richler Cup, and wish the best to this year’s contestants.”
The event serves as a wonderful tribute to Mordecai Richler, for whom the Tournament is named. The title of Richler’s final book was “On Snooker: The Game and the Characters Who Play It (2001),” which traces the history of the game. The self-described ‘poolroom bum’ penned the nonfiction release not long before he died in July of 2001. John Tschirhart points out that Richler has recently received a number of well-deserved accolades, and that will continue at the Richler Cup. Fittingly, Richler is expected to be remembered at the snooker tournament by a number of dignitaries, helping to honour his memory. “This year will be special,” says Tschirhart.
The 2015 Richler Cup, which takes place May 28th to the 31st in Toronto, Ontario, will be produced for television at Humber College. Additionally, the event will be live streamed to the Internet, and feature in a planned documentary about snooker in Canada.
