How many can you remember?
The 2020/21 snooker season is but a distant memory, and it will soon be time to look forward to the crowning of new event winners during the next campaign.
There’s about a month left before the 2021/22 snooker season starts, with the oh-so crowd-pleasing Championship League returning in July to commence the fresh term.
Of course, there were two editions of the Championship League last season in what was a difficult year for the World Snooker Tour overall.
Widespread cancellations were enforced for tournaments outside the United Kingdom, and the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes played host to the majority of makeshift events that were staged amid the safety of a bubble environment.
It wasn’t until the World Snooker Championship in April and May that crowds returned, but hopefully those testing days are behind us and there’ll be an injection of normality to come over the course of the upcoming campaign.
The likes of the German and European Masters are in line to be hosted in mainland Europe again, while there is already a new ranking event scheduled for Turkey in September and October.
Although the Marshall Arena served a very important purpose, the players will undoubtedly be having their fingers crossed that there’ll be more destinations on their schedule, and sunny Antalya has gone down pretty well with a lot of them on social media.
The tournament is contracted for four years and carries an initial prize fund of £500,000, a tidy sum of money that the players will be keen on fighting for.

The British Open, meanwhile, will be making its return to the calendar for the first time in almost two decades as well – pencilled in to be staged at the Morningside Arena in August.
The disruptions during the 2020/21 season meant that there were 18 events completed on the WST calendar – a big decline from previous campaigns but still a good effort under the circumstances.
With tournaments on the World Women’s Snooker Tour cancelled in addition to the international amateurs competitions, there wasn’t much else on show aside from the World Seniors Championship last month in Sheffield.
The question is then, how many event winners from the 2020/21 snooker season can you name?
