We are pleased to announce details of the much anticipated World Matchplay short-format Billiards championship to be held in April 2022.

The event will be held at the new Snooker & Billiards Academy in Carlow, Ireland. For those who have travelled and participated in previous events at The Ivy Rooms in Carlow, the new venue is located nearby. It has four Star tables and four Shender tables which are kept in “championship condition”, we are looking forward to experiencing the great conditions during the events.

Once again the modified short-format and baulkline crossing rules will be in operation for the World Matchplay.

The Irish Open will run from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd April. The Matchplay will follow on from this on the 4th running until its climax on the 8th
