The Ladbrokes Players Tour Championship 2015/2016 - Finals (also known as the 2016 Players Tour Championship Finals) was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 22–27 March 2016 at the EventCity in Manchester, England. It was the eighth ranking event of the 2015/2016 season. The tournament was broadcast in the UK on ITV4.

Defending champion Joe Perry failed to qualify for this year finals having finished 51st on the Order of Merit. The tournament was won by Mark Allen who beat Ricky Walden 10–6 in the 19-frame final, winning the £100,000 first prize. It was Allen's third ranking event win and his first in Europe after two wins in China in 2012 and 2013.
