The 2023/2024 English Junior Tour is open to players aged under-21 on the 31st December 2023.
Eight players will be seeded through to Stage 2 (Sunday) of each weekend based on their finishing positions on the 2022/23 Under-21 Premier Development Tour. These players will be required to pay a block entry fee of £150 at the start of the season and are as follows:
- Oliver Sykes
- Samuel Lee Stevens
- Paul Deaville
- Jamie Wilson
- Mitchell Berry
- Daniel Boyes
- Aidan Murphy
- Jake Crofts
All remaining players will begin in Stage 1 (Saturday).
The closing date for entries for each event is the penultimate Friday (8 days) before an event starts at 12:00pm GMT.
We will aim to publish the draw for each event at least three days prior to the start.
The English Junior Tour will comprise five two-day weekend events throughout the season, to be open to all age-eligible players as follows:
- Five two-day tournaments
- Saturday: First Group stage (no seeding) to produce eight qualifiers, who will join eight players seeded straight to the Sunday
- Sunday: Second Group stage (maximum two seeds per group), followed by KO rounds (QF, SF, F).
All group stage matches will be played over the best of 3 frames, with knockout matches to be played over the best of five frames.
Players will earn ranking points relating to their results at events. This ranking list will be updated and published after each weekend.
