The inaugural event runs from May 11 to 28 at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield. There will be three events played and the four semi-finalists from each event will earn a place of the World Snooker professional tour for the 2011/2012 season where they will be competing for total prize money of £4.5 million and this figure is ever-increasing with each new tournament.

 

Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon Snooker EPTC4

 

The list of of the 124 players entering feature a lot of new and old names. Many of the players that dropped off the pro tour after finishing outside the top 64 in the rankings are back again for another shot in the Q School, these include the likes of seven-times women's world champion Reanne Evans, the youngest ever player to make a professional 147; Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon, two-times Thailand Open champion James Wattana and Norway's top player Kurt Maflin.

 

Luca Brecel Snooker

 

The Q School will also see plenty of young talent trying to join their hero's on the main tour next season. The biggest name is obviously two-times European under-21 champion Luca Brecel who is now able to join the main tour finally reaching the legal age of 16. If Luca doesn't make it through the Q School he should receive the wildcard for his achievements anyway. Other young hopefuls include; Ronnie O'Sullivan Future Stars 2010 champion Joel Walker, Stephen Hendry's 18-year old nephew Jason Tart and 2008 Junior Pot Black champion Mitchell Mann.

 

David Gray Snooker

 

A few more familar faces joining the line up are former main tour veterans; David Gray, Mike Hallett and Tony Knowles. David won the 2003 Scottish Open and was as high as 12 in the world rankings but dropped off the tour last year and Mike is the 1989 Hong Kong Open champion and former world no.6. Three-times world semi-finalist and 80's star Tony Knowles would be the oldest player on the tour if he was to make it through the Q School at the age of 55, could he cause a shock in Sheffield?

 

Lasse Munstermann Snooker

 

Entrants to the Q School come from all over the world also, leading the charge for Germany we have surprise EPTC package Lasse Munstermann, Brent Kolbeck from Canada and representing India we have Lucky Vatnani. There is also a large portion of players making the trip over from Asia, including former China Open wildcards; Li Hang, Yu Delu, Cao Yupeng and the player who beat Ronnie O'Sullivan in last year's tournament; Tian Pengfei.
