SeniorsWC2018NewTitleSponsor

This is of course great news for the players, and for the future of the Seniors Tour. Jason deserves a lot of praise for the way he seeks and secures deals for the Seniors Tour, in various sectors, not just in the betting industry. Make no mistake, this is a massive effort and a huge personal investment as well as financial risks.

I f you wish to support the Seniors tour…

Following Shaun Murphy’s generous gesture, Jason has been contacted by another tour player, which has prompted him to send this message around:

Dear World Seniors Tour Player,
Following on from the fantastic gesture from Shaun Murphy yesterday i received an email from another tour player asking if we accept donations from players and snooker fans of what we are doing trying to create this tour.
As i said to him anything we get donated will be paid out in full in prize money for you. I totally understand everyone has different financial circumstances but the one thing we have in common is our love for the game and our support of this venture. Therefore if anyone wishes to make a donation, either publicly or in private then please email me
jason@snookerlegends.co.uk
If you want to keep it private then we will say its an anonymous donor, if you want publicity for your business or a charity then we can use our huge social media numbers to do that as well.
We can provide receipts for any donations made, in some cases this can be tax efficient for you.
Most of you who know me will understand I will work as hard as I can to generate as many opportunities and as much prize money as possible but we welcome all the help we can so please get in touch.
thanks again

And, don’t forget, coming to the events, is also a great way to support the Seniors Tour whilst having a lot of fun!

The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) can today announce its involvement in the beginning of an official WPBSA World Seniors Tour.

WJimmy White with trophyhilst the World Snooker Tour has gone from strength to strength in recent years, it is vital that we consider the longevity of the careers of our players. We recognise the excellent work already carried out by Jason Francis and Snooker Legends in creating interest and events which many of our sporting greats now compete in. Our intention is to create a partnership with Jason to take what he has done global and create more playing opportunities for amateurs than ever before.

There is clearly a role to play for the WPBSA as snooker’s world governing body in ensuring this concept receives the attention and support it deserves. Globally, there are significant numbers of players who are over 40 who continue maintain a strong competitive instinct in our sport, this includes many passionate amateurs and includes both past and present World Snooker Tour players.

In support of the many players and the work of the World Snooker Federation as snookers IF, we are now engaged with the partners involved to build a tour of events as an official WPBSA World Seniors Snooker Tour.
