THE growth of snooker in China is set to continue with the announcement that 110sport will jointly promote the BTV International tournament next month.

A world-class field will assemble in Beijing from July 19-25 headed by former world champions Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan alongside local heroes Liang Wenbo and Marco Fu.

“The popularity of the game out here is such that we could be playing in events every month,” said Hendry who is currently in China playing in the Wuxi Classic.

“There is a first class entry for this tournament plus there is a qualifying tournament to find the three remaining wild-cards amongst the Chinese professionals – and the competition for that place will be fierce.”
