The Seniors British Open 2020 will be played in Plymouth on 3 and 4 April 2020.
The match ups for the upcoming ROKiT Phones.com Senior British Open which will be staged at the Plymouth Pavilions on the 3rd and 4th April, are as follows:
Opening the event on Friday 3rd at 7pm will be 7 times World Snooker Champion and 4 times former British Open Champion Stephen Hendry who will play 1985 World Snooker Champion Dennis Taylor. That match is followed by another cracker as the current World Seniors Snooker Champion, and former two time British Open Winner Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White plays an amateur player who will come from a event in March.
All the legends will attend a VIP champagne reception before these matches start so a great opportunity to grab an autograph and photo.
