2018 World Billiards Championship

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.

The following dates are confirmed for the forthcoming 2018 World Championships:

19th OCTOBER 2018   Qualifying Tournament Northern SC, Leeds
20th-21st OCTOBER 2018 World Open (Jim Williamson Memorial) Northern SC, Leeds
22nd-26th OCTOBER 2018   World Championship (Long Format) Northern SC, Leeds
25th OCTOBER 2018   World Women’s Championship Northern SC, Leeds





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

The entry fee for the Qualifying Tournament and the World Championship will be £80. Players not progressing through the Qualifying Tournament will be refunded £60.

The entry fee for the World Open (JWM) is £40 and for the World Women’s Championship it is £30.
