Swansea To Host Snooker Shoot Out

Snooker’s star players will be in Swansea in December for the BetVictor Shoot Out, a unique tournament which features fast matches and an electric atmosphere.


The world ranking event takes place from December 6th to 9th at Swansea Arena. Tickets are on sale now and start at just £20.


It all starts with 128 players in the field, whittled down to one on the Saturday night who will be crowned champion and take home the trophy. Last year, Chris Wakelin came out on top, coming through a strong field which included green baize giants such as Mark Selby, Shaun Murphy, Mark Williams, new World Champion Luca Brecel, Mark Allen, Kyren Wilson and Jimmy White.


The unique format makes it snooker’s most dramatic tournament as the action comes fast and furious from the first break-off.


All matches last a maximum of ten minutes, with a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and just ten seconds for the last five. Players are put under extreme pressure as they battle the clock and their opponent. Plus there’s a random draw for every round which adds to the drama. Fans are encouraged to interact with the players and enjoy the occasion!

The full line up of players as well as the first round draw and schedule will be announced in November.


The event is televised by Eurosport, discovery+ and many other broadcasters worldwide.
