To be held at S.C Breakers, Russelsheim, Germany, the all-new German Open will be open to players from all eight disability classification groups.

Open Day

As with regular UK-based tournaments, there will be an Open Day led by WPBSA Snooker Coach Steve Rutter held on Friday 27 October from approximately 10:00am until 1:30pm.

It is anticipated that there will be limited opportunities for practice prior to the start of the tournament at 2pm, with priority to be given to local disability groups invited to take part in the day.

The competitive tournaments will begin at approximately 2:00pm on Friday 27 October, with a players meeting to be held from 1:45pm.

Subject to entry numbers, WDBS reserves the right to combine groups where necessary to ensure credible competition.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited table numbers (8), we reserve the right to cap entries if necessary. Priority will be given to local players in order to support development in Germany and neighbouring countries.

We strongly advise all players not to book non-refundable flights/hotels until your entry is confirmed, which we will endeavour to do as soon as possible.

We recommend that players who intend to enter the event submit their entry as soon as possible.
