Later this month, Gloucester’s South West Snooker Academy will host the first event to be staged by the new World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) body.
Having qualified to play at the 2015 Champion of Champions at the final opportunity last week in Sofia, Mark Allen is now through to the final in Coventry, following a 6-3 victory against Kyren Wilson in tonight’s second semi-final.
He will now play Australia’s Neil Robertson in tomorrow’s two session final, after the world number three saw off friend and practice partner Joe Perry 6-4 earlier on this afternoon.
As was the case last season, alongside the European Order of Merit will run an EBSA Order of Merit, on which amateurs will be awarded points, with the top 16 after six events qualifying for a play-off event next spring.
Two players from that event will earn two-year tour cards from the start of the 2016/17 season, following in the footsteps of last season’s qualifiers Martin Donnell and Sanderson Lam.

As we build-up to the start of the 2015 Betway UK Championship in a couple of weeks time, last year’s runner-up Judd Trump and reigning world champion Stuart Bingham caught up with West Ham duo Andy Carroll and Carl Jenkinson for a special Snooker Shoot-out.
