The 1982 Professional Players Tournament was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place in two venues in the Birmingham area. One was at the La Reserve in Sutton Coldfield and the other was the International Snooker Club in Aston.[1] It was the first tournament in a series which is now known as the World Grand Prix. The event was untelevised and unsponsored.[2]

Ray Reardon defeated Jimmy White in the final to gain his first ranking tournament win since the 1978 World Championship.[3]
