In memory of our late founder Ikechukwu Innocent Okoye who was an avid sportsman and excelled in most sports especially snooker, Zircon Marine in his honor, promotes snooker competition among youths and adults in the following ways:
Interschool Competition: At the two secondary schools Ik Okoye attended- Federal Government College Ijanikin and King’s College Lagos- Zircon Marine provides periodic snooker clinics, furnishes both schools with snooker tables & accessories as well as organizes and rewards winner and runner ups of the annual interschool snooker competition between both schools.
Emperor’s Cup Competition: Zircon Marine hosts friends of Ik Okoye and snooker lovers to the Emperor’s Cup, an annual snooker competition held at Ikoyi Club Lagos as a memorial to Ik Okoye who was an active member at the club and won several trophies.
