This International event will feature the best disability players from all around the world who will compete for the inaugural WDBS Irish Open in eight different categories.
World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) was founded in 2015 to give more people with disabilities the opportunity to play cue sports around the world.
WDBS was set up under the auspices of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA), with guidance from Activity Alliance, a national charity which aims to ensure that disabled people around the world are active for life.
Since its formation WDBS has regularly staged several snooker events for people with disabilities across the UK and beyond. Typically run over three days, events include a mix of open days at which anyone with a disability is encouraged to attend and try snooker, as well as competitive tournaments.
Tournaments are open to people with a range of physical, learning and sensory disabilities, with players assigned to a classification group determined by their disability profile as set out within the WDBS Classification System.
