2023 Amateur Snooker Events Abroad This Week…
THE 2023 WSF Snooker Championships kick off this weekend in Australia on February 4th.
With 158 players from 22 different countries competing, the only worry is that there are not that many English players making the journey to Mount Pritchard and the Mounties Club.
No less than 90 players in the tournament are competing from the home country.
There are some top amateurs from England though, competing in the tournament, and a wide range of talent – with the likes of Stephen Lee’s son Alfie Lee, who did well last year in the Snooker Legends 900.
There’s former professional Harvey Chandler who is going to be making the journey, as well as the likes of Daniel Wormersly, and from Wales, there is the talent Liam Davies, who is a member of the SightRight stable of younger talents.
Young talent Stan Moody is also making the journey over to OZ.
Last year, the WSF held the tournament at the home of snooker in Sheffield at the luxurious Ding Junhui Academy.
The event was won by Chinese talent Si Jiahui, who beat English player Lee Stephens 5 – 0.
Women’s Asia Pacific Tournament.
The 2023 Asia Pacific event for women sees no top female players from England, with only one player represented from the United Kingdom in Scotland, Louise Foster.
Only World number two Mink Nutcharut (see pic), who became the World number two days ago, and Hong Kong’s NG On Yee are making the trip to Sydney which begins on the 31st January to the 3rd February.
There are only 28 entries.
Australia’s top female star Jessica Woods is playing in both events.
