2022/23 World Seniors Open Series announcement

This was shared by Jason Francis on social media yesterday


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.
