The totesport Grand Prix is a professional snooker tournament. It is one of the eight ranking tournaments. It has previously been known as the LG Cup and the Professional Players Tournament.

The tournament was created in 1982 as the Professional Players Tournament by the WPBSA, in order to provide another ranking event. Ray Reardon beat Jimmy White by 10 frames to 5 in the final to win the first prize of 5000.

In 1984 Rothmans started sponsoring the tournament, changed its name to the Rothmans Grand Prix, and moved its venue to the Hexagon Theatre, Reading. The tournament has had various sponsors and venues since. The previous sponsor, LG Electronics, took over in 2001 and changed the tournament's name to the LG Cup. In 2004, the current sponsor added its name to the event, now known as the totesport Grand Prix. The tournament is currently played at the Preston Guild Hall around October, at the start of the snooker season.
