The British Open returns to the World Snooker Tour for the first time in 17 years

John Higgins lifted his last British Championship in 2004

The British Open will return to the World Snooker Tour for the first time in 17 years in August.

The event, part of the Tour from 1985 to 2004, was last held in Brighton, when John Higgins won.

This will be the second global event of the 2021-22 season and will run from August 16-22.

“We are thrilled to bring the British Open back, which has a great history,” said WST President Steve Dawson.

All 128 round players will compete in the tournament, and more details – including the host venue and announcers – will be announced in due course.

There are 19 WST events scheduled for the 2021-22 season, with discussions continuing for many other potential tournaments.
