Bio

Chris Wakelin has been an ever-present on the World Snooker Tour since 2013 and is a four-time ranking event quarter-finalist.

From Rugby, England, Wakelin successfully qualified through Q School to turn professional for the first time.

In 2015 he reached his first ranking event quarter-final at the Indian Open, defeating Rhys Clark, Andrew Pagett and Nigel Bond, before losing out to eventual champion Michael White. A year later he equalled this run at the English Open, notably coming back from 2-0 down to defeat Ronnie O’Sullivan 4-3 at the last 32 stage.

He qualified for the televised stages of the World Championship for the first time in 2018, narrowly losing 10-9 to Judd Trump. He also reached the quarter-finals of the subsequent Riga Masers to climb into the world’s top 50 for the first time.

Away from the baize, Wakelin worked full-time as a deliver driver for ASDA prior to joining the main tour.
