World Seniors Snooker (WSS) has announced that the 2023 World Seniors Snooker Championship will be held at the iconic Crucible Theatre in Sheffield from 3-7 May 2023.
Once again the event will hold qualifiers to give opportunities for any amateur player, or any current WST professional player ranked 65-131 on the main tour, and over-40 on or before 28 October 2022, to win one of four coveted spots at the event alongside legends of the game including Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry and Ken Doherty. Lee Walker will begin the defence of his title on the opening night.
Four Qualifiers will be held at the Crucible Club in Reading, with the winner of each event progressing to the final stages. The dates of those qualifiers are:
