There are over 90 entrants and they are playing for 4 spots at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre in May. The event will also be shown on the BBC.
The field includes current main tour professionals, some legendary names from the sport and a large number of amateur players.
The format of the event is a bit peculiar, but is obviously designed to cope with the restrictions due to COVID.
During each of the opening six days there will be four round robin groups. The top player from each group will advance to the end of day play-offs where two will progress to ‘Finals Day’ on Sunday.
The 12 will then be split into four round robin groups of three (best of seven frames) with the winner of each group taking their place in Sheffield between the 6th-9th May for the final stages, where reigning champion Jimmy White will be defending the title again.
The 2021 World Seniors Snooker Champion will also earn a place at the Champion of Champions.
For the draw please see WPBSA SnookerScores where you will be able to keep up with the event all week.
The Finals Day on Sunday is due to be streamed live on the World Seniors Snooker Facebook page.
