IBSF World Amateur IBSF World Under-21 IBSF World Grand Prix IBSF World Team Cup European Championship
European Junior European Team Euro Play-Offs Asian Championship Asian Under-21
Oceania Championship English Amateur
IBSF World Championship
Formerly the World Amateur Championship

 
The World Amateur Championship is much younger than its professional counterpart with the first event not being held until 1963 although individual countries had been holding their own championships for many years. The English Amateur for example, began way back in 1916.

 

Only five players contested the first championship, in Calcutta, which was played on a round robin basis and Gary Owen of Wales won all four of his matches to take the title. The next event was held in 1966 in Karachi with Owen successfully defending the title. It was then held every other year, alternating with the Billiards Championship, until it became an annual event in 1985.

 

In 1966 there were still only six entrants but by 1968 this had risen to ten who were split into two groups with the top two going into the semi-finals. By 1972 there were enough players for four groups with the top two from each going forward to two further groups before knockout semi-finals as before. Over the years the numbers have increased to the present level of eight groups of up to eleven players in each from which four from each group go into a 32-player knockout stage.

 

Many former winners have gone on to do well in the professional game such as David Taylor, Jimmy White, Doug Mountjoy, James Wattana and, more recently, Marco Fu but only champion has gone on to add the World Professional title and that was Ken Doherty, who won in 1989 and was, of course, Embassy champion in 1997.

 

Originally the event was organised by the Billiards Association but since 1974 it has been the International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF) who now control the non-professional game worldwide, who promote it. Since then it has been officially known as the IBSF World Snooker Championship although most people continued to call in the “World Amateur” and many still do. When the professional game was opened up to anyone who could pay the entry fee in the early 1990s, lower ranked professionals were allowed to enter this and the other former amateur only events.

 

The 2001event, which was due to be held in Egypt, was cancelled due to the war in Afghanistan. The 2005 championship was also cancelled, this time due to an earthquake which occurred in Pakistan where the event was due to be held.

IBSF World Grand Prix

This event was staged in February / March 2006 as a replacement for the 2005 IBSF World Championship, which had been cancelled due to an earthquake in Pakistan. The winner would take the place on the professional tour allocated to the winner of that world championship although he was not entitled to call himself worlds champion. The event was run on exactly the same lines as the world championship. It was won by Michael White of Wales who was just 14 years and 240 days at the time. This made him the youngest ever winner of a major international event, amateur or professional, and gave the World Snooker Association a problem in that he was below the age normally considered as the minimum to join the professional circuit

EBSA European Championship

 This event is run by the European Billiards and Snooker Association (EBSA) and began in 1988 in Holland but was then not held again until 1993 since when it has taken place annually. Similar qualification rules apply as for the IBSF events and these are somewhat loosely interpreted allowing some players take part event though they are ranked as high as the top 64 in the professional rankings in some cases.

 

Mark Allen (2004) is the only winner to date to have made it to the top 16 in the professional world rankings although Finland’s Robin Hull (1997) did reach the top 32. In 2010 Belgium's Luca Brecel become the youngest ever winner of the title at 15 years and 89 days.

EBSA European Junior Championship (Under-19 to 2010; Under-21 from 2011)

This event was added to the calendar in 1997 with the first event being held in Jersey. Ian Preece who won in 1998 and was runner-up the following year is the only winner who has so far progressed to better things having won the IBSF World Championship in 1999 and gone on to the Main Tour although Michael Holt, runner-up in 1997, has also done quite well on the professional circuit having risen to 29th in the world rankings. In 2009 Belgium's Luca Brecel, at just 14 years and 18 days became the youngest ever winner of the event. From 2011 the age restriction was raised to Under-21 to conform with the other major junior championships.

EBSA Euro Play-Offs

As part of a new system for qualifying for the main tour from 2006 onwards, three places were awarded to Europe. The winners of the EBSA Championship and Under-19 Championships would get two of the places provided they met the age qualification. The third place was at the discretion of the EBSA and they decdided to hold a qualifying event, usually as part of the main European Championships with the winner's name being put forward as the third nominee. As the 'home' nations already had main tour places allocated to them, players from Britian and Ireland were excluded from this event.

English Amateur Championship

The English Amateur is one of the oldest of all snooker competitions. It began life as the Amateur Snooker Championship back in 1916 at Orme’s Hall, Soho Square in London and added the word ‘English’ to its title in 1921.
 
The scores of those early championships are lost in time but when it became the English Amateur, the first six events were contested on an aggregate score over seven frames and in 1927 it was changed to a frame score basis after F.T.W. Morley, who had entered under the pseudonym of ‘F.T. Leaphard’, had lost the final to W. Nash even though he had won four of the seven frames.
 
Traditionally players from the other home countries have been admitted to the championship and many have won it including Welshmen, Marcus and Gary Owen, Ray Reardon and Terry Griffiths and more recently Joe Swail of Northern Ireland. The winner, or best-placed Englishman, is automatically entitled to represent England in the world amateur championship.
 
After the second world war the number of entrants grew to such an extent that the championship was reorganised on a regional basis with the winners of the Southern and Northern finals meeting for the title itself.
 
Other than Reardon and Griffiths, only John Pulman, winner in 1946 and John Spencer (1966) have gone on to win the world professional title. Ronnie O’Sullivan was one of the hottest favourites for years in 1991 and made a maximum break in the Southern quarter-final but he surprisingly lost to Steve Judd in the final. Joe Johnson (1978) and John Parrott (1983) also fell at the final hurdle as did twice Masters champion, Paul Hunter, in 1995.
 
In 2003, Alex Davies became the youngest ever winner of the event. He was just 15 years 288 days when he beat Ben Woolaston, also only 15.
