Players Tour Championship
Open events with ranking points

Brief History of the Players Tour Championship
 
A series of events established in 2010/11. Initailly there were six UK based events (PTC), and six European (EPTCs).  Some of the EPTCs were major existing Pro-ams like the Paul Hunter Classic re-vamped to fit the new formula. The events are all open to amateurs and professionalswith ranking points awarded to professionals from the last 64 onwards in each event. There is a separate PTC ranking list based on prize money won in the 12 events and the leading 24 players qualify for the Players Tour Championship Final with increased prize money and ranking points. From the second season the distinction btween the UK based events and those in Eoropew was dropped and they were all  names simply PCTs
