Heald’s Matador Protects the World Snooker Championships

Heald’s Matador Protects the World Snooker Championships

Earlier this year, Heald were delighted to be approached by Sheffield City Council to secure the World Snooker Championships at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.

It was important for organisers that both competitors and visitors to the event felt safe and secure throughout the tournament which saw the likes of Mark Williams and John Higgins compete for the coveted title of World Snooker Champion.

The Matador 4, perfect for short term events due to its surface mount install, was installed for four weeks whilst the championships took place from 21st April until 7th May.

Michael Crofts, Director of Business Strategy and Regulation at Sheffield City Council said: "It is top priority that our participants and visitors feel safe and secure when attending major events in Sheffield. Working with Heald Ltd to implement a robust security system allowed us to bring peace of mind and deliver a world class event”.

Nigel Oldfield, Operations Director for World Snooker Ltd commented: “World Snooker were delighted with the installation of the Matador and we were also impressed with the excellent service we received from Heald”.
