The SMPT Show Mat concept was first introduced at the World Masters in 2015 to enable the optimal viewing of special games. The Show Mat has since been used at many events including the Irish Open, Swedish Masters and Norwegian Open. Thanks to our new larger venue, this season’s UK Open will also have a Show Mat and as usual a game from each session has been selected which we believe deserves to take centre stage!
Below are the confirmed fixtures for the 15 sessions of group games that will be played throughout Day One and during the morning of Day 2. This talented line-up consists of players from 6 countries and includes 5 winners of SMPT ranking events, 3 World Cup winners, in addition to a host of World, British Isles and National Champions, past and present.
