THE Ultimate Pool Pro Series gets underway for 2023 in Blackpool tonight, with Keighley superstar Chris Melling one of the big names in action.

Melling is up first on Table Two against Carl Morris in the last-64, while there are last-32 games to be played this evening as well.

His fellow Keighley native Arfan Dad is also in last-64 action, facing Chris Day in his opener.

Bradford-born Karl Boyes gets his campaign underway against Jimmy Carney.

The final of event one is at 9pm on Saturday with event two getting underway earlier that day.

Dad starts off in the preliminary round of that one against Johan Attard, while Boyes and Melling are yet to find out their opponents, with both not getting underway until the last-64.
