2019/20 WEBSF Tournament Calendar Announcement

The West of England Billiards and Snooker Foundation (WEBSF) is proud to announce its tournament calendar for the upcoming 2019/20 season. 

Since 2004 we have remained true to our ethos of providing a series of affordable, worthwhile and trusted one-day competitions held in the West of England that are open to players of all ages and abilities. 

The WEBSF circuit has featured several future main-tour professionals in its ranks over the last few years; Sam Baird, Eden Sharav, Billy Joe Castle, Harvey Chandler, Ian Preece and Jackson Page. These star names competed alongside fellow top amateurs and rising talents in a portfolio of flagship tournaments. 

During a season in which we will be celebrating our 15th anniversary, both the annual West of England Snooker Open and the five-event Gold Series will return. As too will the lucrative Gold Masters; an invitational, only open to the top 16 ranked players from this campaign’s Gold Series.  

The curtain-raising West of England Snooker Open will take place on Saturday 7th September. Entries for this event will be open this Saturday 10th August at 09.00. Spaces are limited for all WEBSF events, so please secure your entry as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Entry for each event will be made open at a certain time, please check either the website or our social media channels for regular updates. 

2019 West of England Snooker Open entry details

Once again, we will also host a duo of English Billiards events – the Billiards Open and the West of England Billiards Open, whilst we are very excited to stage a new competition for female players – the Carpenter Snooker Tournament. Further details about this new concept will be delivered in due course. 

All tournaments throughout the season will be run on a 100% pay out basis. All entry fees that come in, will go out again as prize money.

Gold Waistcoat Masters Winner – Haydon Pinhey 2015-16 with Sponsor Matt Hulatt M.J.H. Paving Ltd.

Haydon Pinhey the Gold Waistcoat Tour Champion 2016 is also the Gold Waistcoat Masters Champion 2016. A fantastic achievement that will take some matching. One man that could, is the prolific break builder Eddie Manning, Eddie came a very close second to Haydon in both the Gold Waistcoat Tour and Gold Waistcoat Masters this season. If he can find the time to enter enough tour events next season, whilst also attending Professional Tour events, he has got to be one of the favourites.

Thanks to Matt Hulatt of M.J.H. Paving for sponsoring the event and Galaxy Centre for playing hosts.
