2022 Seniors World Championship Update

This was announced yesterday:

HOLT TO REPLACE DALE IN WAYS FACILTIES MGT WORLD SENIORS SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP

Following Dominic Dales performances in the recent BETFRED World Professional Snooker Championship Qualifiers he moved back within the worlds top 64 and therefore becomes ineligible to take up his place at the WAYS Facilities Management World Seniors Snooker Championship. His place will be taken by Michael Holt a ranking event winner, and highest ranked of those eligible for an invitation. We wish Dominic well as he continues his professional career and welcome Michael to the event. The draw for the championship will be conducted live during the BBC Sport coverage of the Professional Championship which starts tomorrow.

Michael Holt lost his professional status earlier this month and will need success at the Q-School to requalify for the main tour. He has been adamant that he wants to continue to play whatever happens … Welcome Michael and congratulations Dominic

Also, the four referees who will officiate at the event have been announced:

The 4 officials who will oversee the WAYS Facilities Management World Seniors Snooker Championship have been announced.
