NEWS

OCEANIA TO GO AHEAD

15 Jan 2018

Dear All

Recently there has been a release from the WPBSA about an event to take place in Malta which alas clashes with the Oceania Championships already scheduled for the 7th – 17thMarch at Mounties in NSW. This is very disappointing but alas out of our control.

As our event was already advertised and venue, sponsors and accommodation already finalised it is not possible for the OBSF to change their dates as has been suggested. Some players have advised the OBSF that they have already booked their flights for the Oceania Championships which makes it impossible to consider changing our dates.

We appreciate that this is not the best situation but we cannot remedy this situation that was not created by the OBSF.

We look forward to seeing players from throughout the Oceania region at the Championships supporting the event and the major sponsor Mounties who does so much for the sport in our region.

Regards

Barrie Jones

OBSF President

World Snooker Federation Championships

The World Snooker Federation (WSF) has today announced the beginning of its own official WSF Championships, which will run from 14-24 March 2018. The event will be played at the Dolmen Hotel, Malta and provide new and exciting opportunities for amateur players.

The winner of the main WSF Championship will receive a first prize of €10,000 and earn a two-year tour card for the World Snooker Tour. The four semi-finalists of the event will all be invited to compete at the 2018 World Snooker Championship in Sheffield, England, which this year carries a record first prize of £425,000. The event will run from 18-24 March.

The WSF Championships will also consist of the official 2018 World Women’s Snooker Championship, the champion of which will receive €6,000 and again the winner will qualify to enter the 2018 World Snooker Championship in April.

There will also be an event staged for players over-40 years of age, to be known as the WSF Seniors Championship. There will be a first prize of €6,000 for this competition, and following the recent WPBSA announcement regarding an official World Seniors Tour, the winner will receive a personal invitation to compete in a major international World Seniors event.

The top eight players of both the Women’s and Seniors events will automatically qualify to play in the main WSF Championship, providing equal opportunities for both men and women to earn a two-year tour place on the World Snooker Tour. Both of these events will be played during 14-17 March.

The events will also be played on Star tables, further preparing players before they join the lucrative professional circuit.

WSF President Jason Ferguson said: “The announcement of our first WSF Championship marks the beginning of a new dawn for amateur snooker across the globe. The Championships will provide equal opportunities, exciting bonuses for elite performers and a clear a pathway to a career in our wonderful sport.”

Further information, including event entry details, will be released in due course.
