Prize fundEdit

The breakdown of prize money for this year is shown below:

The "rolling 147 prize" for a maximum break was won at the previous ranking event, the Welsh Open, and so stood at £5,000. The sponsor pledged to double the prize for a 147 break and so the prize was £10,000.[1]

Seeding listEdit

The top 32 players on a one-year ranking system running from the 2015 Australian Goldfields Open until the 2016 Gdynia Open qualified for the tournament.[2]
