World Disability Snooker Day 2024

This year’s annual World Disability Snooker Day will run during the upcoming Cazoo World Snooker Championship on Wednesday 24 April.

The day aims to raise awareness of the opportunities for people with disabilities to pick up a cue and get involved in snooker.

It has been a season of continued growth for the World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) tour which has featured ranking events in four countries as well as the Shanghai Invitational Disability Snooker Cup in China and a groundbreaking week at the World Abilitysport Games in Thailand.

WDBS players, including gold medalists from the World Abilitysport Games, have been invited to partake in the day which takes place at the Cue Zone in the Sheffield Winter Garden and will include activities led by WPBSA Snooker coaches including Steve Rutter.

The event is jointly organised by World Snooker Tour (WST) and WDBS, a subsidiary body of snooker’s world governing body the WPBSA, which has staged disability snooker events since 2015.

WDBS aims to provide opportunities for people around the world with disabilities to play snooker competitively, with the long-term goal of taking the sport back to the Paralympics for the first time since 1988.
