The Welsh Open will run over the stated dates, at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff. The entry fee will remain at £45, including the Ranking Event Levy.
Entries will open shortly, and will close on 26th October. We offer a full refund policy (less un-recoverable fees) up until the closing date. There are no refunds after the closing date, so please don't ask.
We will once again limit entries, in order to better manage the event. Once entries are full, we will run a Waiting List. All entries strictly by Sport80, and withdrawals will be re-allocated strictly via the Waiting Lists.
The organisers reserve the right to amend the format of events depending on entry numbers, and not run events if entry numbers are too low.
