Five year print partnership for Balreed and global golf tournament

Balreed to provide all print technology and support to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships for the fifth year running.

It may be known to many professional golfers as the ‘Home of Golf’ but to Balreed, St. Andrews Golf Course is a ‘home away from home’.

Once again Balreed has been chosen by the organisers of the world-renowned golf championship, played at St Andrews, as the official supplier of print and document technology.

This is the fifth year the event will rely on Balreed throughout the four-day tournament to provide and support print, copy and scan devices to media tents, European tour offices and tournament offices across all three courses that the event plays on.

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a magnet for golfers from every corner of the world. It has a unique format and incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US$5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

Lee Westwood leads the British challenge for the title this year, and many of the world’s leading international players will be there to compete with him. In the amateur ranks the playing roster is sure to include some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and business. Michael Douglas, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid have all shared the fairways in previous years with sporting greats like Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Bobby Charlton, Boris Becker, Ian Botham, Ruud Gullit, Johan Cruyff and Nigel Mansell so expectations of the 2012 field are very high.

The tournament starts on Thursday 4th October and will play over three championship Scottish courses: The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Balreed’s support extends to all three courses and staff will be on site throughout the build-up and the tournament itself to help organisers prepare and manage the event.

Balreed’s Managing Director Robin Stanton-Gleaves commented: “When we were first selected to provide print support to the event five years ago we were thrilled, and even more so to be invited back the following year, it was a testament to our hard work. So to still be the chosen print partner five years later is a sincere compliment to all the Balreed team and we will continue to do what we have been doing which is careful planning and precise execution, providing service to the highest standard to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.”

Premier League Betting makes Football more Exciting and Suspenseful

Premier League Betting is a Good Bet with William Hill

The 2012-2013 Barclays Premier League football season has gotten off to a roaring start, which augers well for the continuation of the season; and so has Premier League betting at William Hill. The current season began on 18 August 2012, and it is scheduled to wrap up on 19 May 2013, with full coverage available at William Hill.

The Long Football Season Means More Premier League Betting

The Premier League (also known as Barclays Premier League since the world-famous bank took over sponsorship) is England’s main professional football league, with hoards of loyal fans attending games, rooting for their teams and betting on their favourite sides along the way. (The league has thousands of fans outside of England, as well, where it is known as the English Premier League, or EPL.) During the long and arduous 2012-2-13 season, the 20 teams will each play 38 games, giving punters ample opportunity to place bets on a range of markets, such as high scorer, first scorer, and winning side.

Of the 20 teams competing this season, 17 are making repeat appearances, having played in the 2011-2012 Premier League. In addition, three new teams have joined, after being promoted from the Football League Championship. These newcomers are Reading, Southampton and West Ham United, and they’ve replaced the Bolton Wanderers, the Blackburn Rovers and the Wolverhamptom Wanderers. The point system in the Premier League is easy to follow – no changes this season where scoring is concerned. Teams are awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw; the side with the most points at the end of the season takes home the coveted Cup.

William Hill is a Pro at Premier League Betting

Manchester City entered the 2012-2013 season as the the reigning champion, having won the title last season. However, as every football fan knows, anything can happen in the Premier League. The odds on William Hill Sports reflect each team’s chances (longer odds mean a weaker team; stronger odds are given to better teams). UK punters know that William Hill gives the best odds on the Net, which is why so many seasoned punters do their Premier League betting on William Hill. The site’s reputation as professional and reliable is unparalleled.
