2019 UK Open registration fees will be the same for both UKBGF members and non-members, and are unchanged from last year: £50 for the Masters and £35 for the Intermediates (called ‘Advanced’ last year). This year, however, players may help themselves to hot drinks and healthy snacks in the Woodland Grange coffee lounges for the duration of the tournament at no extra charge. This applies to all registered players, whether or not they are staying at the venue hotel.
Although the registration fee is not payable in advance, but on arrival at the venue, you must pre-register by email. Please do this as early as possible to secure your place in the tournament and to help us to prepare. See the Registration page for details.
The return is 100% of all entry fees and pools except for satellites, in which the return covers the respective entry and registration fee of the Main Event, and jackpots for which there is a 10% rake. Read more about the distribution of tournament prize money. See Registration for information about eligibility to play in a particular flight.
