Provisional 2024/25 snooker season calendar

With the current campaign nearing its climax, fans might be wondering what’s on the agenda for the upcoming 2024/25 snooker season calendar.

There are still a few tournaments to complete on the ongoing schedule, starting with this weekend’s World Mixed Doubles in Manchester.

Neil Robertson and Mink Nutcharut will defend their title against the pairings of Judd Trump and Baipat Siripaporn, Mark Selby and Rebecca Kenna, and Luca Brecel and Reanne Evans.

Following that at the same venue will be the Tour Championship, where the top 12 players from the one-year ranking list will battle it out for this term’s penultimate ranking title.

Finally, the remainder of April will be dominated by the sport’s blue-riband World Snooker Championship in Sheffield.

Ten days of qualifiers at the English Institute of Sport will precede the main event itself at the Crucible Theatre from April 20th to May 6th.

Beyond that, however, there won’t be too long to wait until the 2024/25 snooker season calendar commences.

Earlier this month, the World Snooker Tour released its provisional dates for the new campaign.

As has become customary in recent years, it will be launched with the ranking event version of Championship League Snooker.

The drawn-out competition will begin in mid-June, with four weeks of action taking place before the season’s first trophy is handed out in early-July.

It seems likely that the Shanghai Masters will continue to represent the first trip to China, but the long-running event could move to a new unconfirmed spot in July.

In August, the inaugural Xi’an Grand Prix will take place while the first Saudi Arabia Snooker Masters will also commence at the very end of the month.

Open to all competitors on the circuit as the country’s maiden ranking event, it will boast a total prize fund of more than £2 million.

The remainder of 2024 has a similar look to last year, with many of the same tournaments returning.

That includes events like the UK Championship, the Champion of Champions, three of the four Home Nations series tournaments, and the Snooker Shoot Out.

There are fewer confirmed dates heading into the new year, with many gaps on the 2024/25 snooker season calendar still to be filled.

The Masters will, of course, take place early in January, with the German Masters back at the Tempodrom at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, the 2025 World Snooker Championship is pencilled in for April 19th to May 5th.
