Wayne Jones (born December 24, 1959) is a former Welsh professional snooker player. Despite never breaking into the top 16, he reached the last 16 and quarter-finals of many ranking events. His most notable run was to the final of the Mercantile Credit Classic in 1989[3] with victories over the likes of Jimmy White, where he lost to Doug Mountjoy 11–13, despite at one stage leading 11–9. He qualified for the World Championship on four occasions, but only ever progressed beyond the first round once, in 1989, with a 10–9 victory over Neal Foulds, but was beaten 13–3 by Dean Reynolds in the last 16.
