Jersey Open – 25-27th February ’22

We are delighted to confirm that World Billiards will be heading to the Channel Islands in February with the Jersey Open being held in St. Helier.

The last Jersey Open was held in 2009 as an EBOS (English-Billiards Open Series) event, the forerunner to the current circuit. Billiards has a long history on the island with our host venue, the Mechanics Institute, dating back to 1902. We expect this to become a popular destination on the circuit, with visitors enjoying everything the island has to offer.

The exact schedule will depend on the number of entries, however sessions on Friday 25th February will begin no earlier than midday. The group stages will continue on Saturday, with the knockout stages and Challenge Cup on Sunday. The host venue has eight tables in a historic two floor hall, located in the heart of St. Helier a short walk to the waterfront and in close proximity to numerous places to eat and drink.
