2022 PREVIEW: Eden Women’s Masters…
THE 2022 Eden Women’s Masters takes place in Coulsdon this weekend with a star-studded line-up to end 2022.
The draw has just been released with groups A – K and a record number of now 49 entries – that’s up from 39 last season by 10 entries!
That could be due to more of the World Women’s Tour players being promoted on TV on the World Professional Tour or on the fast and furious Snooker Legends 900.
It’s the final women’s ranking event of a bumper year of successes in women’s snooker and the Eden Women’s Masters has seen an upsurge in entries since the 2021 staging with three new debutants.
As well as the main competition, there will also be side tournaments played for our Under-21 and Seniors (Over-40s) players, with a Challenge Cup on Sunday to guarantee play for all players on both days.
There will once again be free entry to the main competition for any first-time WWS player, or any player who has not played in a WWS event for over 10 years.
World Women’s Snooker is delighted to return to Frames Sports Bar, with owner Tony Thompson and his team have supported this event since 2019.
Woking Snooker amateur star Jasmine Bolsover and Emma Parker are among the line-ups as well as professional stars Reanne Evans, Ng On Yee, Mink Nutcharut and Rebecca Kenna.
It’s set to be a grand finish for the World Women’s Snooker T0ur for 2022 this side of Christmas.
A Bumper Year of Women’s Snooker with lots more to come in 2023…
This year has seen a bumper year of developments for the Tour as a whole.
Not only has there been events for the first time in America and a return to Australia since the Pandemic, with tech giants Microsoft on board, as one of the sponsors, the women’s snooker has seen players such as Mink Nutcharut, the reigning World Women’s Champion scoop a World Professional Mixed Doubles event with male partner 2010 World Champion Neil Robertson.
Jasmine Bolsover appeared on TV in the amateur snooker event the Snooker Legends 900 and almost caused an upset to Canadian champion amateur Vito Puopolo in a blue-ball shootout.
Emma Parker also appeared and won a night session at the event.
Diana Schuler, a recent Scottish Open Women’s Seniors Champion wrote on Facebook about the final event of this year. a few days ago..
Amazing to have 46 players. 41 in Glasgow was already our biggest in 22 years, but 46 is another big step.
According to WWS, this figure so far is the highest since 1998.
Ultimate Pool Champion Harriet Haynes, who has played on the World Women’s tour, but is now focusing on the Ultimate Pool and IPA pool circuits said that it would be good if there was another women’s event in the south and that Woking Snooker Centre would be an ideal venue to hold another women’s snooker event.
Next year, there will be more events added including Belgium, Asia, and, in May, Landywood Snooker Club will host the British Open.
