Tuesday will see the first 12 matches of the new season as players from Group 13 and 24 take to the table. Former world championship semi-finalist Andy Hicks will be one of the men in action as he takes on Allan Taylor, Sanderson Lam and Robert Milkins. Lam qualified for the ranking event after sealing his place on the world snooker tour with a victory at Q School. Taylor, who finished his last two Championship League campaigns in the round-robin stage, will be looking to go that one step further on his third attempt. The other group will see David Grace, Craig Steadman, Aaron Hill and Ben Hancorn all go head-to-head.
