British Open returns after 17 years


John Higgins lifted the final British Open trophy in 2004

The British Open will return to the World Snooker Tour for the primary time in 17 years in August.

The occasion, a part of the tour from 1985 to 2004, was final staged in Brighton, when John Higgins gained.

Will probably be the second world rating occasion of the 2021-22 season and can run from 16 to 22 August.

“We’re delighted to deliver again the British Open which has a improbable historical past”, stated WST Chairman Steve Dawson.

All 128 tour gamers will compete within the event, with additional particulars – together with the host venue and broadcasters – to be introduced sooner or later.

There are 19 WST occasions scheduled for the 2021-22 season, with discussions ongoing for a number of different potential tournaments.
