World Seniors and RIBSA Announcement

  • 14th June 2018

World Seniors Snooker (WSS) and the Republic Of Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association (RIBSA) have today announced a new cooperation agreement in respect of events to be staged by both organisations this season.

Through the latest agreement which underlines the commitment of WSS to supporting snooker’s national federations, RIBSA will be granted two places to all WSS qualifiers staged in the Republic of Ireland over the coming season.

RIBSA will further be granted a place in next January’s Seniors Irish Masters for their nominated over 40s champion, while RIBSA will also run a Cue Zone open to all visitors at the event to be held at the iconic Goffs venue.

There will also be opportunities created for RIBSA appointed referees to officiate at the WSS qualifiers in Letterkenny and Celbridge, as well as the opportunity to work with Michaela Tabb at the Seniors Irish Masters.

In line with its commitment to snooker’s national federations, WSS can confirm that all Irish Nationals who participate in any WSS qualifying event must be a member of RIBSA.
