Welcome to Canada – Bienvenue au Canada !

Nex week-end the Seniors potters will compete in Toronto for a spot in the Seniors World Championship.

Toronto World Qual 2018

There have been more than 50 entries already. The draw isn’t know yet.

This event is very important in the eyes of the Canadian Billiard and Snooker Association.

this is what they had to say to their members:

Canadian Snooker Players/Members:

As promised more information is now available regarding the Senior Tour Event. Players who have already signed up may have received the e-mail below but I would like to share it with all our members. Please read the e-mail sent by the WPBSA President Jason Francis below.

This will be a great Canadian event and for us snooker addicts over 40 a thrill to participate in this whether you play or not.

We agree with Jason and foresee this Senior Tour event to be the start of putting Canada back on the map internationally so let us show our support by playing or coming out and joining Cliff Thorburn, Jason Francis, and many others at the players reception on Thursday Dec 6th, followed by match play over the next 3 days.

Entries for this event can be online but also can be made by cash at the Corner Bank with John White and Jim Wych. We would love to see one of our Canadians make it all the way to England to represent us, yes that does not have to be only a dream it is reality ! Take care everyone and see you there if you make it.

The CBSA board and OBSA board thank you and look forward to your support of this great event.

E-mail sent by Jason Francis:

Firstly we want to tell you about the most important WPBSA Seniors Snooker Event to be staged in Canada for decades, this first event is an important part of putting our country back on the map and discovering the next Thorburn, Stevens and Werbeniuk. We are at the start of something and we hope you will want to get your cue out and support the event.

If you are over 40 by 7th Dec you can compete for this great opportunity.

It will all start with our players reception where we will make the draw for the main event. This will take place on Thursday 6th December at the Corner Bank Club 925 Warden Ave, Scarborough, ON M1L 4C5, – this of course is our home for the whole event.

Arrival time is 7pm and you will be welcomed by our global Ambassador, 1980 World Snooker Champion and Canadian Legend Cliff Thorburn. We’ve got a great evening planned for everyone and of course you will know who you will be playing.

Dress code is smart casual, no jeans or trainers please.

We’ve been working hard together on making this event just right and after discussions with the CBSA and Corner Bank we’d like to announce some news.

Firstly THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER, RIGHT HERE
Enter now by clicking here https://www.snookerlegends.co.uk/worldseniors_registration.html

Secondly we are going to announcing a change in the prize fund to make sure everyone who makes the quarter finals is on some money

The winner will of the event will now receive 2000 CAD and an invitation to the 2019 World SENIORS Snooker Championship where the winner gets 42,000 CAD and a place in the World Professional in Sheffield.

The Runner up will receive 850 CAD

Semi Finalists will 350 CAD

Quarter Finalist will receive 125 CAD
All the money will be paid out in cash on the final day of the event.
ENTRY FEE IS 85 CAD (£50) via the online entry system.

Should the winner be Canadian the CBSA have announced they will make a further contribution to their players travel to the final stages.

Also because we understand many players will only play in this one event this season the WPBSA will not impose the requirement to purchase an official tour shirt at 40 CAD, we are asking players who don’t have a shirt to supply their own short sleeved black collared shirt and you will be required to pay 15 CAD for the World Seniors Logo which you will attach with double sided tape. Should any players wish to purchase the shirt anyway as a keepsake please let us know in advance when you enter so we can bring them.

If you have any questions please refer to the terms and conditions, as well as Canadian players we have some players travelling in who already have an official World Seniors Snooker Ranking, they do get placed in the draw in seeded positions, everyone else is randomly drawn.

We are working on streaming one match table throughout all three days, this means we can offer some great exposure to any company who wishes to add some sponsorship. Please email me or enquire at the club about how we can advertise your brand with this great event,

We personally look forward to meeting everyone in Toronto, please remind other players they still have time to enter and dare to dream as well, please post this link on all your social media and email it about
