WST and our partners in China are excited to announce that the World Open ranking event will be staged in Yushan in March 2024.

This will be the fourth WST event staged in China during the 2023/24 season, following September’s Shanghai Masters, October’s Wuhan Open and November’s International Championship in Tianjin.

The World Open will run from March 11 to 17 and will be held in Yushan in the Jiangxi Province, which was the tournament’s home from 2016 to 2019. Judd Trump is the most recent winner of the title, beating Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in the final in 2019.

WST Chairman Steve Dawson said: “We are delighted to join forces with Star Xingpai, Yushan Municipal Government and CBSA to stage the World Open in Yushan in 2024.

“Having been unable to stage tournaments in mainland China between 2019 and 2023 due to travel restrictions, we have made an emphatic return this season. To have four major Chinese events in our first full season back in the Far East underlines the huge appetite for snooker in China and the fact that we have built lasting relationships with our key partners.

“Snooker’s future in China is bright and this is just the beginning. The World Open is a fantastic tournament in an outstanding location which has particular significance for snooker as it is the home of Star Xing Pai and the world’s first Billiard Sports City.

“This title was won by four greats of our sport – Ali Carter, Ding Junhui, Mark Williams and Judd Trump – between 2016 and 2019. I have no doubt that all of the biggest stars will keenly anticipate the chance to return to Yushan in 2024.”

Full details on the tournament will be announced in due course.
