The Brentwood Centre will once again host snooker’s English Open in 2023.

The venue in Brentwood staged a world ranking event for the first time in December 2022 and it was a fantastic success as crowds packed the arena each day. Mark Selby lifted the BetVictor English Open trophy after beating Luca Brecel in the final, having come through a field packed with the sport’s biggest stars including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, John Higgins and Neil Robertson.

The tournament will return to the same location from October 2-8. Tickets are on sale now. For details visit www.wst.tv/tickets

WST chairman Steve Dawson said: “We are delighted to be heading back to Brentwood. It proved a fantastic location for the English Open last year and we were thrilled to see the venue packed every day and a great atmosphere.

“Snooker has so much history in Essex and the county has produced some of the best players of all time. If the local fans continue to support this event then Brentwood could become the long term home of the English Open.”
