Here’s all the information you need to know about snooker’s next major tournament, the Coral Tour Championship
Snooker action continues with the second tournament, the Coral Tour Championship, since sport halted for the coronavirus lockdown. Earlier this month Luca Brecel triumphed in the snooker Championship League, a non-ranking event. It was an entertaining tournament, but the serious business of earning world ranking points now resumes at the Coral Tour.
A relatively young tournament, it was only established last season. It features the top 8 players on the one-year rankings list, but fifth seed Ding Junhui withdrew due to travel complications. He has been replaced by Stephen Maguire.
