A Clash of the Titans: First round matches scheduled for next month’s English Open in Crawley.

Snooker kings including World Champion Mark Williams and world number one Mark Selby have had their first round matches scheduled for next month’s English Open in Crawley.

The first ever major snooker tournament to be staged in Crawley runs from October 15 to 21 at K2, with 128 players chasing the Steve Davis Trophy.

The following first round matches have been scheduled:

Monday October 15

Mark Williams v opponent

Not before 7pm
Mark Selby v opponent

Tuesday October 16

Not before 7pm
Judd Trump v opponent

Many more of snooker’s leading players have entered the tournament, including Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy, Barry Hawkins, Kyren Wilson, Mark Allen, Luca Brecel, Stuart Bingham, Stephen Maguire, Ryan Day, Anthony McGill, Marco Fu and Jimmy White.

The deadline for entries is October 3rd, after that date the full draw and format will be confirmed.

Ronnie O’Sullivan won the title last year, beating Kyren Wilson in the final.

Televised by Eurosport and Quest, it is the first of the season’s Home Nations series, to be followed by tournaments in Belfast, Glasgow and Cardiff. Any player winning all four trophies will bank a massive £1 million bonus.

Tickets are on sale now and start at just £10 – and with up to eight tables in play during the early rounds, it’s tremendous value for the chance to see many of the best cuemen on the planet show their skills.

All-day tickets start at just £20, and there are still a limited number of tickets available for the showpiece final on Sunday October 21st, with all-day tickets at £55. There are also a limited number of Event Passes which give access to every session of the tournament for just £160!
