Entries are now being accepted for the Stockport Open which will return to the Hazel Grove Snooker Club for a second year from 10-12 January 2020.
Previously held as the Northern Classic, the event will begin with a Friday Open Day for people with all disabilities to come and try snooker under the guidance of WPBSA World Snooker coaches including lead coach Steve Rutter. There will also be a buffet provided early in the afternoon and opportunities to meet the WDBS team and ask any questions.
The Friday will also include a session of English Billiards coaching, which may include a competitive tournament subject to interest on the day.
The weekend itself will then include competitive tournaments for players with physical and intellectual disabilities (WDBS Classification Groups 1-6) from Saturday morning, with every player guaranteed snooker across both days with a Challenge Cup competition to be staged on Sunday for players already knocked out of the main tournament.
The deadline for entry is 4:30pm on Friday 3 January 2020.
