The closing date for entries and payment of entry fees is 4:30pm BST on Monday 3 September 2018.
Prior to the tournament, this year will also see our new Women’s Snooker Open Day held at Leeds’ Kirkgate Markets to help raise awareness of women’s snooker and to encourage more women of all ages to take up the sport.
A snooker table will be installed at the state of the art 10m x 10m event space at the Markets, complete with PA system, overhead projector and an impressive eight metre LED screen for use on the day. Activities will include meeting students from up to four local schools, together with local women traders from the markets taking to the baize and try snooker and receive tips from WPBSA World Snooker coach Steve Mallender and the players present.
The day will run from 10:00am-4:00pm and all players are welcome to come along and show their support for the event.
For players competing in the tournament there will also be a photo shoot organised during the first day of the tournament on Saturday 15 September.
With updated photos to be used for future events marketing and promotion, all players are strongly encouraged to participate and will receive the photos for their own use.
