Event Navigation

World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) is today delighted to announce the 2018 Belgian Open, the first WDBS competition to be held outside of the UK.

The landmark event will be staged at The Trickshot, a fully accessible venue home to 11 full-size snooker tables and located close to the centre of the historic city of Bruges, from 23-25 March 2018.

The main two-day tournament will be open to players with physical disabilities including ambulant and wheelchair users (WDBS Classification Groups 1-5). As with previous WDBS events, there will also be a free Friday open day held for people with any disabilities, with opportunities to practice and receive advice from qualified WPBSA World Snooker coaches.
