2018 Asian Grand Prix

Asian Grand Prix Entry Form

We are pleased to announce that the Asian Grand Prix will proceed in Singapore from June 2nd to June 6th. The event will carry $7500 (Singapore) prize money and be a level 5 World Ranking Event with double ranking points. Unfortunately due to some unforeseen circumstances we are limited to the use of three tables at the Singapore Cuesports Academy. Players will get the maximum amount of playing time that is practical given entry numbers and available facilities. The format will be 100-up. Players will be required to referee matches for other players during both the round-robin and early knock-out stages, up to the quarter-finals. Referee duties will be indicated on the playing schedule.

World Billiards thanks Cuesports Singapore for overcoming some issues that presented themselves and hosting this premiere event. The entry form can be downloaded from the link at the top of the page. It is now safe for players to commit to travel arrangements. A recommendation for accommodation will be announced.

PLAYERS MEETING AND DINNER (update 18th April)

There will be a players briefing at the Academy on Friday June 1st, from 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm. There will be a buffet dinner reception for players following the meeting.

2018/19 World Billiards Championships


New Structure for World Billiards Championships

In a departure from our usual dual-format World Championships of the past six years, World Billiards can now announce that the two World Championships will be split and played at different times of the year. This has largely come about due to the pressure we have previously put on the host venue by being there for 13 days straight.

Therefore the following dates are now confirmed for the forthcoming World Championships:

20th-21st OCTOBER 2018   World Open (Jim Williamson Memorial) Northern SC, Leeds
22nd-26th OCTOBER 2018   World Championship (Long Format) Northern SC, Leeds
       
20th-21st APRIL 2019   UK Open Northern SC, Leeds
22nd-26th APRIL 2019   World Championship (Short Format) Northern SC, Leeds

 

 

 

 

Our thanks must go to Chris Williamson at the Northern Snooker Centre for agreeing to host us under these new conditions.

Further details will be announced as they are confirmed.
