Following the recent announcement that the World Snooker Federation (WSF) will return to Malta for two new competitions from 4-17 January 2020, we can today confirm that entries for both tournaments are now open.
Organised together with the Malta Billiards & Snooker Association (MBSA), the event will comprise two tournaments, the WSF Junior Open (4-9 January) and the WSF Open (10-17 January). The winner of each tournament will earn a two-year tour card to the professional World Snooker Tour from the start of the 2020/21 season.
The entry criteria for both events are as follows:
- Both events will be open to players of all nationalities and genders
- Players competing in the WSF Junior Open must be aged 17 and under up to and including 31 December 2019. Players of any age may enter the WSF Open.
- National federations may nominate up to two players for each competition.
- Both events are also open for direct entry by players who are a member of and in good standing with their national federation.
All entries must be received through the WPBSA Tournament Manager system at https://snookerscores.net/
