Aaron Canavan

2018 World Seniors Champion

Highest Pro Ranking




Aaron Canavan rose to prominence in 2018 as he became the first exclusively amateur player to become World Seniors Snooker champion in Scunthorpe.

A car restorer by trade, Canavan came through qualifying in Dunstable, before he defeated Dennis Taylor, John Farrell, Cao Kaisheng and finally Patrick Wallace 4-3 in the final, to capture the Tour’s premier title.

The victory earned him a place at the professional World Championship qualifiers in Sheffield, where he lost out 10-1 to former world number 12 Robert Milkins.

He has subsequently established himself as a regular competitor on the WSS Tour, reaching the quarter-finals of the World Seniors Championship in 2019 and 2020.
