Sir Gavin Williamson MP visited Landywood Snooker Club while it hosted the fifth World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association Q Tour tournament.
The Q Tour is one of the premier pathways to the World Snooker Tour with two professional places to be won across the season.
The tournament, which ran from the 9th – 11th December, saw 103 players compete for a chance to rise to the top of the Q tour rankings and earn a professional tour card.
The event was eventually won by Daniel Wells, who defeated Sydney Wilson 5-2 in the final on Sunday 11th December.
Sir Gavin said: "I was thrilled to attend the Landywood Snooker Club in Great Wyrley as they hosted the fifth WPBSA Q Tour tournament.
"The club has had a remarkable transformation under the stewardship of Director Paul Lloyd - who has worked hard to modernise the club for the greater benefit of the community.
"It was a pleasure to meet Paul and former professional snooker player Jason Ferguson who is the current Chairman of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association. I understand that it was a fantastic tournament with some high-quality snooker, and I hope similar competitions return to Great Wyrley soon."
