WSS OPEN SERIES – PRESS RELEASE
The World Seniors Snooker Tour is today pleased to announce the creation of the Open Series which will add 3 more weekend events to the 2022/23 Season Calendar.
The Events will carry a minimum £1000 to the winner with prize money paid down to the last 16.
Entry will be £50 and played on a Saturday and Sunday.
The Dates are:
- WSS OPEN SERIES 1 10th & 11th Dec 2022 – Crucible, Newbury
- WSS OPEN SERIES 2 4th and 5th Feb 2023 – Crucible, Reading
- WSS OPEN SERIES 3 8th and 9th Apr 2023 – Crucible, Newbury
Players will need to be over 40 on or before the first days play of each event. The event will be open to Amateurs and Professionals Ranked 65-131 of eligible age.
Best of 5 all the way through, every event will carry points which will count towards both the Official Rankings and also Money List.
Entry for all 3 competitions will open on 3rd October via snookerscores.net
The mention of a “money list” suggests that the ranking system for the Seniors might change in the future to be “aligned” with what is used in the main tour. I will try to get more infos about that in the coming days.
