In big style for the first time

Welcome World of Snooker

For the first time in "Austrian Snooker Open" history, we needed to expand to the venue "BRP-Rotax-Halle".

Not knowing what will be the benefit but with meticulous preparation throughout the year and the massive support of the city Wels, the governement of Upper Austria and our sponsors, we were able to bring the top of Snooker to Wels.


A big "Thank you" to all our members who helped and supported!

Team spirit an tireless effort while building and demounting are necessary to hold a tournament like this one.

What an event!

Tom Ford wins!

Surprisingly for the crowd, ranked 70 in the world, Tom Ford wins the tournament in superior manner.
