When? 17-19 August 2018
Where? Snooker Palace, Noordzandstraat 4, 8000 Brugge

Here is the draw:
And the format and a very international field with players from the host country, Belgium, bein there “en force”, including the current national Masters 40+ champion and the current Masters +40 n°1. There is also a strong presence of France, with, in particular, Stéphane Ochoiski, a man who has been promoting snooker in France tirelessly, a coach and father of Brian Ochoiski, currently competing in the Challenge tour.
Thats 48 entries. Not bad! The 16 players, higher in the ranking list, have been seeded.
And on the Thursday, Jason Francis plans to organise a special “warm-up” event, Ryder Cup style, with the UK players pitched against the rest of the World.
