World Snooker has responded well to the coronavirus pandemic and managed to keep staging tournaments throughout the UK and beyond. As the World Championships at the Crucible approach, fans are wondering when and where they can watch Live Snooker in the lead-up.
How to Watch the 2021 Snooker Season on UK TV
There is something of a power struggle within the game of snooker at the moment. There’s a wide range of talented new players taking part the tour from the UK and China, yet the old guard doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon. Ronnie is still playing mesmerising snooker well into his forties whilst a certain seven-time world champion, Stephen Hendry, is making a comeback at the tender age of 52!
This mix of pretenders old and new means that snooker is in pretty rude health, making the upcoming World Championships at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield one of the most hotly anticipated for some time.
There is 32 places up for grabs in total, with a qualifying event set to decide which players will take part outside of the Top 16. That means that from now until April, every player on the circuit will be looking to hit peak form, leaving us with some spectacular snooker to watch on TV.
