Are you over 40? Want to play with some of the World's top snooker players on the new #Snooker Legends World Seniors Tour?

Then don't hesitate to enter as the event now is expanding as amateurs across the world compete to take part in the final event to be staged at the ever successful venue, the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe.

Jason Francis and his Snooker Legends have partnered up with the seven-times World Champion Stephen Hendry (pictured) to bring you the first World Seniors Tour, and, better still, a feast of prize money is on offer for a series of four events.

This time, 8 qualifiers in a series of venues across the UK and the wider world will get their chance to battle with the Legends in Scunthorpe.

#Peter Lines, who was relegated from the tour - but jumped back on this season, was the lucky amateur last season to win the World Seniors event beating the 1991 World Champion John Parrot in the final.

What's more, players who rack up 36 pots for the perfect maximum break at any of the final stages of the events staged by the snooker promoter will win a KIA courtesy of Victor Wood (Kia) Grantham. The model is worth £30,000.

There's also to be a World Seniors ranking list, and the UK qualifiers for the Seniors Tour begin towards the end of the summer in August, with Newbury hosting the first qualifier.

The final qualifier will be in the beginning of October on the 6th in Clacton at the Pot Black Snooker Club.

All the details can be found on the Snooker Legends website.

As with last season's World Seniors, the lucky winner in Scunthorpe, will head to Sheffield at Ponds Forge to play in the 2018 BetFred World Snooker Championship qualfiers. Peter Lines came close to qualifying for the Crucible in the event and has regained his tour place this season.

There are also a series of Golf days on offer where people can play with a Legend as well as a Gala Dinner.

Last season, the four qualifiers who made it through were Aidan Owens, Jonathan Bagley, Peter Lines and Patrick Wallace.
