World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: "There has never been a better time to be a professional snooker player. The sport is growing rapidly all over the world and we have increasing numbers of tournaments across the globe. Prize money has more than doubled over the past three years and is set to grow further. For the successful players, the rewards will be massive."
Robbie Williams came through Q School last year and is now climbing the rankings having scored some excellent results this season. "I'm loving life on the main tour, I can't believe how good it is to play at venues in front of big crowds," he said. "It's everything I have dreamed of since I started playing snooker. It's fantastic just to rub shoulders with the players I watched on TV. My message to anyone thinking of entering Q School would be just to go for it. If you've got any aspirations of travelling the world to play in the main tournaments, this is your chance."
