The draw for the 2021 World Snooker Tour Qualifying School has been confirmed, with more than 200 players in action.
The 2021 Qualifying School will run from May 27 to June 13 at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, with 14 coveted tour places up for grabs.
Three separate events will each run for six days, with the four semi-finalists in each earning a Tour Card for the next two seasons.
A ranking list will be compiled during Q School, with players earning one point for every frame won, and the next two highest players on the Order of Merit will also secure a card.
During the 2021/2022 season, should the number of entries in any event fall below the required number of entrants, subject to wildcards and commercial agreements, the Q School ranking list will be used to top up to the required number of entrants.
Those who dropped off the tour at the end of last season including Ian Burns, Jackson Page, Soheil Vahedi, James Cahill, Yuan Sijun, Duane Jones, Luo Honghao, Daniel Wells and World Seniors Champion David Lilley are all in action.
Former world number two Tony Knowles is bidding to make his professional comeback, while former Shoot-Out champion Michael Georgiou and two-time ranking event winner Michael White also feature.
Women’s world number four Rebecca Kenna is aiming to join Reanne Evans and Ng On-Yee on the main tour over the next two seasons.
