State Snooker Championship
7 May 2023
27-28 May Round Robin Qualifiers
3-5 June Knockout Stages
Up to 32 players will compete in the Round Robin, with those seeded higher beyond 32 total entries qualifying directly for the Knockout – i.e. if there are 40 total entries, 8 players will be seeded through; with 48 entries, 16 players will be seeded through.
The Round Robin will be 8 groups of 4 players, so each player will have 3 matches to play, Best of 3 Frames.
Half the groups will play on Saturday 27 May, the other half on Sunday 28 May, so you only need to be available to play on one of the days. You can select your preference for Saturday or Sunday when submitting your entry through the website – we will try to accommodate everyone's request, but it's first-in best-dressed.
The top 2 players from each group will qualify for the knockout on the following weekend. Matches in the knockout are a minimum Best of 7 Frames, with Semi Finals Best of 9, Final Best of 11.
Entry Fee: $60
Under 18 Entry Fee: $10
