This is the second running of the Brighton Summer Open originally the idea of the late Paul Gilbertson who passed away in 2018 and Tim Parfitt who is carrying on the event in his memory.
The first event was held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel in September 2018, the main sponsor being the Grosvenor Casino.
The 2018 Masters Winner was Michael Larsen from Denmark, one of 13 nations represented. Michael has promised to return to defend his title and most of the other attendees have expressed interest.
I am pleased that the collaboration with Brighton Grosvenor Casino will continue for the foreseeable future as they go through a major refurbishment in January 2019 which will then allow it to host the next tournament in August as well as smaller monthly events throughout the year.
We will be announcing further details regarding the event over the next few months.
