The Care Workers’ Charity

The Care Workers’ Charity announced as Official Charity of World Seniors Snooker Tour

Here is the announcement:

he Care Workers’ Charity has been announced as the Official Charity of the WPBSA World Seniors Snooker Tour.

The Care Workers’ Charity has announced its new partnership with World Seniors Snooker and its World Seniors Championship which is taking place during May this year at Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

The partnership will see the charity as the Official Charity throughout the World Seniors Snooker tour.

Snooker Legends Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White, King of the Crucible Stephen Hendry, Ireland’s Ken Doherty, and 1986 World Professional Champion Joe Johnson will each battle it out against 12 other players over five days.

The tour, giving opportunity for legends and players to meet, is set to be enjoyed by multiple generations and has been associated with improving older people’s wellbeing.

Working together with supporters and partners, The Care Workers’ Charity will be using the World Seniors Snooker Championship as a platform to invite both care workers and people who draw on care to the event.

The charity’s “50 for FIFTY” initiative allows companies or individuals to give care workers a day out at the Snooker to meet each other, network and share experiences, as well as see their favourite snooker legends.

Plus, 50% of the ticket cost will be donated back to the charity itself. Those adopting and supporting “50 for FIFTY” will also get a day out at the Snooker themselves to see some of the great work the CWC is doing in person and meet the care workers their donation supports.

Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers’ Charity said: “We are beyond
delighted to be asked to partner and support the World Seniors Snooker Tour, personally snooker is a great passion of mine but beyond that I am grateful to be able to offer care workers and their
clients an opportunity to experience a rare treat at the Crucible Theatre, to enjoy good company
and watch some superstars demonstrate their magic

Jason Francis, Chairman of World Seniors Snooker said: “We are delighted to announce the Care Workers Charity as our official partner for this year. As a sport which focuses on ‘Seniors Sport’ we enjoy a huge amount of support from the ageing population, many of whom remember our Snooker Legends from the 70’s and 80’s.

Mark Davis gets an invitation to the 2023 Crucible

This was announced yesterday by Jason Francis on Facebook


The World Seniors Snooker Tour is proud to announce that Mark Davis, the 2016 World Seniors Champion has accepted an invitation into the 2023 Event.

Current World Number 66 Davis has been a professional since 1991, making him one of the games longest serving players. As well as the Seniors Crown in 2016 the ‘Battler from Hastings’ has won multiple World 6 Reds Titles and achieved a highest ranking of 12 in 2013.

Mark said ‘I’m really proud to be a former World Seniors champion and although my aim is still to play on the professional tour I think the opportunities the seniors tour has given to amateurs and the lower ranked your players has been brilliant’

Jason Francis said “In some ways Mark becoming eligible for an invitation means his current professional status is in peril which is a shame for someone who has been on tour for over thirty years, that said the chance to compete at the Crucible Theatre in the single table set up is still one of the greatest things a snooker play can do and I am sure Mark will embrace it”

The World Seniors Snooker Championship is being staged from the 3rd to the 7th May and is live on BBC Digital Channels. The field already contains former World Champions Stephen Hendry, Ken Doherty and Joe Johnson as well as 3 times World Seniors Champions Jimmy White. Tickets can be purchased by going to…/world-seniors…

Should Mark Davis regain his professional status before the event, his place will be taken by multiple event winner, and former World Number 2 Tony Knowles.

So, here is how the field looks like so far
