Jimmy White MBE – Snooker Legend and Entertaining After-Dinner Speaker.
Jimmy White is one of the most popular snooker players in the history of snooker. He is also one of the most naturally talented players we have ever seen.
Jimmy first came to the attention of those in the game when he won the National Under-16 title in 1977.
At the age of 16 he won the English Amateur Championship which qualified him to enter the 1980 World Amateur Championships in Tasmania. He duly became the youngest winner of that championship just 191 days past his eighteenth birthday.
In 1986 Jimmy White won the Pot Black tournament.
Jimmy has won a total of 23 professional titles including The British Open (1987 and 1992) and the UK Championship (1992). However, since he first entered the World Championship in 1981 the title has remained elusive, despite Jimmy reaching the final six times (1984, 1990-1994).
Jimmy White is one of only five players to have completed a maximum 147 break at the World Championships (1992). He has also compiled 253 competitive centuries during his career.
Jimmy White continues to compete in tournaments around the World and is available for Personal Appearances, Snooker Exhibitions and Speaking Engagements.
