COVID-19 Update from WPBSA – 6th July

Following our previous statements with regards to the re-opening of UK snooker clubs we can now provide a further update following developments today (Monday 6th July).

In recent weeks, working with the independent All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Snooker we have sought urgent clarity from the UK government through its Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on behalf of snooker clubs as to when they would be able to re-open. This followed the announcements made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 23 June concerning the ease of lockdown restrictions coming into effect from the 4th July.

It has been confirmed by Nigel Huddleston MP (Mid Worcestershire), Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Sport, Tourism and Heritage at the Department for the DMCS that:

“Sports and physical activity facilities play a crucial role in supporting adults and children to be active. Snooker clubs have been allowed to open since 4 July, as long as they can follow the COVID-secure guidelines.”

The General Management Committee/Bar Sub Committee will review this development and make an announcement very shortly. 



Recent Competition Results

Afternoon Leagues – Spring 2020
The league stage has now come to an end and we have our qualifiers for the knock-Out Stage. When this competition resumes will depend on when the Club re-opens. We did have a minor issue with two fixtures missing from the sheet, however these two matches would not have made a difference to the top three positions in that league so a simple play off match will be played as shown.
