The Welsh Open marks the fourth and final Home Nations Series event on the World Snooker Tour in 2023/24.


Judd Trump won in England and Northern Ireland, before Gary Wilson clinched back-to-back Scottish Open titles in Edinburgh.

Robert Milkins triumphed in the Welsh Open final last year. He defeated Shaun Murphy 9-7 in Llandudno.

Plenty of the finest snooker players around return to Wales for a shot at the crown, though Ronnie O'Sullivan will not feature after withdrawing from the tournament due to anxiety.

Fans across the nation will be excited to see how the top contenders fare in tournaments to come, with the path leading towards the World Snooker Championship in April.
