The first ranking event of the new season will start in 3 weeks. Indeed the 2022 Championship League Snooker (ranking) will run from June 28 to July 28, 2022.
There are a few “glitches” there for now it seems. “Group Four” should obviously be “Week Four” and the event is claimed to start on June 27, but nothing seems to happen on that day … also all “weeks” start on a Monday and finish on a Thursday, except the first one that starts on a Tuesday … but maybe that’s how it actually is.
There are also spelling mistakes in some players names.
This is the poster:
Yes, Ronnie has entered it.
He’s scheduled to play on Monday, 4th of July, in Group 1. The other players in this group are Alexander Ursenbacher, Alfie Burden and Farakh Ajaib. It’s worth noting that Farakh is ranked 7th in the 2022 Q-School order of merit. Michael Holt is also in the draw, he’s 10th on that list.
Zhao Xinton will play in Group 4, on June 29. Mark Selby is scheduled to play on July, 7, in Group 3. Mark Williams is in Group 5, on July 11. Judd Trump is in Group 2, on July 14. Unless I missed him… no John Higgins. No Sunny Akani either it seems and this saddens me.
All four female players on the tour have entered.
Spots have been allocated for the two Asia-Oceania Q-School Events, as well as for an Africa nominee and EBSA players.
A “youth” EBSA event is currently underway in Albania, with a tour card to be had for the under-21 event winner. The event(s) site is here. The under-18 event is underway. Remarkably ALL tables are streamed. Once again a fantastic worl by Dariusz Goral . Take note WST!
