Tickets are now on sale for the 2019 ROKiT World Seniors Championship which will be played for the first time at the Crucible Theatre from 15-18 August 2019.
Announced last week as part of a new partnership with Sheffield City Council, the all-star event will see a field of 20 players including icons of the game including seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry and his great rival Jimmy White, descend upon snooker’s most famous venue to contest the most prestigious title on the ROKiT World Seniors Snooker Tour.
Tickets are available online HERE or by calling the Crucible Box Office on 0114 249 600.
Demand is expected to be high and fans are strongly advised to book as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment.
As part of the event there will also be special sessions held for the first time to showcase the talented players who compete at both World Women’s Snooker and World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) events.
Firstly, at 10:00am on Saturday 17th August there will be the opportunity to see some of the world’s top female players competing at the Crucible Theatre for the first time in nearly two decades.
The following day (Sunday 18th also at 10:00am) will then see some of the most talented snooker players with disabilities take to the baize to promote the rapidly growing WDBS circuit. The ROKiT World Seniors Championship is a fully accessible event at the Crucible Theatre and all are welcome to come and watch the action.
Tickets for both sessions are priced at a special rate of just £1.47 when purchased with any full-price World Seniors ticket, with fans again encouraged to come and witness some fantastic snooker.
