Challenge Tour Play-Off To Take Place July 20th

The eight-man Challenge Tour Play-Off event, with one place on the World Snooker Tour available for the winner, will take place at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield on July 20th.

The event was originally scheduled for March 29th in Clacton-on-Sea but was then postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will now take place in Sheffield, the day before the start of the Betfred World Championship qualifiers.

The Play-Off features the eight highest ranked players on this season’s Challenge Tour rankings, to have not yet earned professional status for next season. The winner will receive a two-year card for the World Snooker Tour.

The draw will be announced shortly.

Regulations on Covid-19 testing, sanitisation and social distancing at the Play-Off will follow the government guidelines at the time. There will be no access for spectators.
