Jim McKenzie, sacked last month as chief executive of the sport's governing body, the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, has issued a writ against the organisation for breach of contract.

He has written to WPBSA members denying allegations reported to have been made against him in a letter to the rank and file by the chairman, Rex Williams. McKenzie also made claims about where the WPBSA, and the sport as a whole, are going wrong.

"I believe that if properly promoted, marketed, televised and organised there is an extremely bright future for snooker," he said. "If these things are not done, the prospects are bleak indeed."
