JS Junior Open Entries Open Now


Matchroom Pool is delighted to announce the return of the Jayson Shaw Junior Open at this year’s UK Open, set to run from May 10-11 in Telford.

Named after the 2023 Hanoi Open Champion and two-time Mosconi Cup MVP, the tournament will offer 32 of the best up-and-coming players the opportunity to play alongside the pros in the UK Open at the Telford International Centre.

As part of Matchroom’s commitment to growing Nineball and offering opportunities to all, the tournament will be the first of six junior opens on the 2024 calendar alongside SVB Junior Open in Atlantic City, and the Vietnam Junior Open in Hanoi.

Carrying a prize fund of $10,000, the JS Junior Open will be a 32-player double elimination field of players aged 17 and under, battling it out for a free spot in the 2025 UK Open. Entry will cost $100, which will be refunded after the event is completed, provided they participate. Juniors competing will also receive a custom jersey provided by Onboard Sportswear, as well as Kamui chalk and cue tip.

The final will also be live-streamed on the Matchroom Pool social media pages with coverage also set to feature during the live broadcast on Sky Sports in the UK and networks worldwide.

Juniors competing in the tournament will not be eligible to compete in the main UK Open Pool Championship due to match schedules. As part of the entry to the JS Junior Open, juniors will be offered a free season pass for them and one adult to enjoy the whole UK Open, allowing them to have time to study the world’s best as they battle.
