Q School

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a professional snooker player? Q School is the system for qualifying for the World Snooker Tour.

There has never been a better time to be a pro on the World Snooker Tour. In 2017/18, overall prize money has reached £12 million for the first time, with nearly 30 tournaments all around the globe. Winning a place on the tour really can change your life. So if you believe you have the talent and the dedication, it’s time to chase your dream.

Details of Q School 2018 will be available early in 2018, see this page for details.

Barry HearnA message from World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn: “Sport is about opportunity for all, regardless of nationality or gender, which is why we introduced Q School in 2011, to give as many people as possible the chance to chase their dreams and become a professional snooker player. Over the past six years it has proved the best and fairest way to allow players to qualify for the World Snooker Tour. If you have the ability and the belief, then your chances are good. The best will rise to the top.

“And the Q School ranking list means you don’t have to gain a tour card to have the chance to play in ranking tournaments.

“Our tour is growing year by year. Within the past eight years, overall prize money has increased from £3.5 million to £12 million. And there is much more to come as we grow our sport across the planet. It’s such an exciting time for snooker – for fans and players alike. If you want to be a part of it, this is your chance.”
