The 2022/23 snooker season is starting to shape up with the addition of the World Mixed Doubles to the calendar and a new home for the elite eight-man Tour Championship.
Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump, Neil Robertson and Mark Selby are set to play in the World Mixed Doubles at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes in September.
The four leading players in the world rankings will be joined by the top quartet in the women's game – Reanne Evans, Ng On Yee, world champion Nutcharut Wongharuthai and Rebecca Kenna – on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September to compete for a title last contested in 1991 and won by Steve Davis and Allison Fisher.

O'Sullivan pulls out of European Masters due to medical reasons
Despite the ongoing absence of China from the sport due to Covid travel restrictions, there are 15 world ranking events pencilled in the diary with 10 of them set to be broadcast by Eurosport.
Eurosport continues its exclusive coverage of the Home Nations Series between October and February which will see the Scottish Open staged by Meadowbank in Edinburgh for the first time and the Welsh Open switched from Newport to Llandudno.
The Tour Championship – the penultimate event of the season before the 47th World Championship in Sheffield – moves from Llandudno to Hull between 27 March to 2 April and is contested between the top eight on the one-year ranking list after the Turkish Masters.
