Some of snooker’s biggest names will not visit Hull until next year after the UK Seniors tournament was postponed until January.

Due to the continuing challenges and restrictions for overseas travel, a decision has been made to delay the competition.

The event would have been the first to take place at the Bonus Arena, Hull since March 2020.

However, a decision has been taken to delay the tournament – set to feature Jimmy White, Joe Johnson and Ken Doherty – from 12-15 August to 4-7 January 2022.

It is hoped the those international snooker legends based overseas will be able to take part by moving the event to next year.

Jason Francis, chairman of World Seniors Snooker, said: “We are desperately disappointed to have to make this decision so close to the event but the current challenges post pandemic continue to affect us. The good news is Seniors Snooker will return to Hull in early January and some of our overseas stars should now be able to travel and play on these new dates.”

Tickets already purchased for the event remain valid for the equivalent new dates in January. The full draw for the event will take place next month.
