The World Seniors Tour – Open for Entries

A random selection of old people.

In amongst all the excitement at The Crucible last month I didn’t have a chance to report on the new structure for Seniors Snooker which has just gone up a notch following a successful few seasons under it’s founder Jason Francis, who has now joined forces with the WPBSA to make this a real addition to the snooker portfolio.

As well as formalising an already vibrant tour, the involvement of the WPBSA has also brought with it a lucrative increase in the prize money, with the winner of this year’s World Seniors Championship receiving a whopping £25,000, that’s a 150% increase on this year’s event which was won by Aaron Canavan.

It’s really encouraging that this is giving players who have possibly put their best days behind them a chance to really compete for meaningful prizes and a bit of glory in their older years. Details of all the main events are listed below, there are qualifying events all over the place to get to these main stages, so if you’re 40 or over and fancy a crack at it, here’s your chance.

Below are details of the tour and importantly a link where you can enter. At just £50 per entry it’s definitely worth your attention with this kind of dosh on offer.
