The 2016 UK Open will be held between 22-24 July at the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, Telford, UK, and will replace the GB9 Northern Masters planned for the same weekend.

All existing GB9 members will be eligible to play the UK Open for no additional entry fee. GB9 Pro division members who play the event will receive a £90 refund due to the fact that there will be no separate Pro event.

The format for the weekend will be as follows:

Main Event

128 Players, Double-Elimination to the Last 32, followed by Straight KO

TOTAL PRIZE FUND €14,700 (£11,400)

Bonus Event – Open to all players not making the Last 32

Tier 2, €1,200 (£925)

The GB9 committee would like to take this opportunity to thank Luke Riches at Matchroom Sport for allowing us to provide a world class event here in the UK with the prestige of being part of qualification for what many consider the best pool event on the calendar, The Mosconi Cup.

More information and instructions on how to enter can be found on the event details page.
