Entries Open for Paul Hunter Ladies Classic

Entries are now open for the 2016 Paul Hunter Ladies Classic which will take place from 25-28 August 2016.

The tournament will be the first event of the 2016/17 WLBS Women’s World Ranking Series and the first ranking event to be held outside of the UK this decade.

The group stage and quarter-finals will be held at the Ballroom Nurnberg, before the semi-finals and final are played alongside the World Snooker Paul Hunter Classic at the Stadthalle in Fuerth.

Full details and the entry pack are now available here. The closing date for entries is the 21st July 2016.

WLBS Director Diana Schuler said: “The staging of a women’s world ranking event in mainland Europe this season is a significant milestone for the WLBS and I am delighted that our first tour stop will be in my home country Germany.

“It is fantastic to be able to give the many women players in Germany and mainland Europe the chance to be able to play on the WLBS tour and also to showcase their talent to the fans in Germany.

“We would like to thank the WPBSA and Thomas Cesal as the promoter of Paul Hunter Classic for this great opportunity to play alongside the sport’s top professional players.”

Earlier this month the WLBS announced its full calendar for the 2016/17 season including events in the UK, Germany and Singapore.
