The WPBSA Q Tour is the premier qualifying circuit to the World Snooker Tour with two professional places to be won during the 2022/23 season.
The Tour consists of six regular Q Tour tournaments, with each weekend seeing 64 players in action, to include a maximum of 48 who have qualified directly for the main draw due to their positions on the 2022 Q School Order of Merit and Q School Asia Order of Merit.
The remaining 16 players will come from open qualifying rounds to be held on the Friday to complete the field.
The top ranked player at the end of the season is guaranteed to earn a two-year tour card. There will also be a play-off tournament run with 16 players (each event winner not already qualified + next highest ranked players), with the winner also to earn their professional card.
