No time to waste. Get your entry in now!
You can read the full announcement from WST here:
Q School will take place at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield – the same venue as the Betfred World Championship qualifiers, and all matches will be the best of seven frames.
As usual, there are 12 main-tour spots up for grabs, but this time there are no cards available for the order of merit. The order of merit will still be used to top up ranking events though.
There’s still time for lots of things to change but not a lot of time to get your entry in. The closing date is 30 June and the event starts on Monday 3 August. The three tournaments to be played consecutively and the four semi-finalists in each event will earn a place on the World Snooker Tour for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.
There could also be a limit on the number of entries if the COVID 19 policy at the time dictates. However, any player who falls off the main tour, or takes part in the Challenge Tour playoffs and fails to win a tour card in that event, will be allowed to enter Q School regardless of the number of entries for the event.
The Challenge Tour
There will also be further opportunities for Q School players through a revised Challenge Tour series to be run under the WPBSA. Full details will be released in due course.
The Challenge Tour has come under criticism from some so it remains to be seen as to what format this will take.
