Evesham Angling Festival attracts new sponsor

The popular Evesham Angling Festival qualifiers get underway on Saturday June 20th with a new sponsor in place for the Wychavon Championship. Tackle giant Abu Garcia is sponsoring the competition, which will now be known as the Abu Garcia Wychavon Championship and the top prize in this competition this year is increased to £3,000. Backing prizes are £2,000, £1,000, £500 and £250. In addition there are 10 section prizes of £150 in the final.
The big money Shakespeare Championship also sees an increase in the prize money this year with the winner set to walk away with a cool £6,000. Backing prizes in this competition are £2,000, £1,000, £800 and £500 with 10 section prizes of £150.
The format for both events is the same with an invited list of top match stars being joined by qualifiers from a series of matches which will take place throughout the summer. All anglers can take part in these matches, even if they received an invitation or already qualified and with places already being filled quickly every match is set to be a 70 peg sell out.
Draws for all the qualifiers take place at Hampton Ferry in Evesham at 10am with fishing from 12pm till 5pm. To book a place in any or all of the matches or for more details contact Diana Raphael on 01386 442458.
