Jason Francis, WSS Chairman, said: “We’re aware many of our Tour have been asking for dates so we wanted to get the Crucible qualifier dates announced as we understand for many that is the ultimate prize for any snooker player and people will need to schedule them in.
“We are working hard on our open series dates and also trying to stage the UK Seniors Championship once again so hope to make more announcements soon. We hope by staging these first four in different geographical locations that many more non mainland based players will be able to enter. We aim to open tour membership and entries for these events in the near future.”
