The 2011 Wyldecrest Park Homes Welsh Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 14–20 February 2011 at the Newport Centre in Newport, Wales. This was the first time that the Welsh Open was sponsored by Wyldecrest Park Homes.[1]

Stephen Hendry made the 77th official maximum break during his second round match against Stephen Maguire. This was Hendry's 10th 147 break and with this equalled the record for most maximums with Ronnie O'Sullivan,[2] and became the oldest player to compile a maximum break at the age of 42 years and 35 days.[3]

John Higgins defended his title, which he won in 2010, after defeating Maguire 9–6 in the final.[4] This was the first All-Scottish final since the 2005 Malta Cup final between Hendry and Graeme Dott.[5]
