The player who finishes top of the Challenge Tour rankings after ten events will be awarded a Tour Card.

The next eight players in the rankings will go into a play-off event, with the winner of that event to receive the second Tour Card. The draw for the play-off will be seeded with the player highest in the Challenge Tour rankings drawn against the eighth highest, and so on.

There will be six events in the UK and four in Europe. Snooker clubs and federations will be given the chance to bid to host events. Clubs do not need to use Star tables but those in the UK must be affiliated to the WPBSA’s 147 Club scheme. The prize money for each event will be £10,000.

The field for events will be made up as follows:

UK Events
• The top 56 players from the 2019 Q School ranking list
• Eight Wildcards, to be selected with the intention to promote the development of grassroots talent
• If necessary, the last-64 round will then be topped up with players on the Q School ranking list

European Events
• The top 56 players from the 2019 Q School ranking list. All 56 will be directly entered into the last 64.
• Eight Wildcards, to be selected with the intention to promote the development of grassroots talent.
• An unlimited number of further entrants will compete in pre-qualifying stages, playing down to the available places in the last 64.

The two available World Snooker Tour Cards will be for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.

The continuation of Event 5

Event 5 was started on 2 November 2019, but was ‘rained off’. Actually, freakish weather caused some problems in the drains and water came through the ceiling of the Castle Club and was dripping onto the tables.
The event was abandoned and eventually WST decided [https://wst.tv/challenge-tout-event-five-announcement/] that it should be reconvened here at the Winchester prior to Event 10 which will take place starting on 1 March here at the Winchester.
