Belgian Women’s Open 2024…

Belgian Women’s Open 2024…

THAILAND’s STAR Mink Nutcharut retained her Belgian Open title at the weekend – as the first ranking event of the World Women’s Snooker Tour potted off.

The 24-year-old  defeated Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee, who had made a ton in 2023’s Snooker Legends 900, but Mink Nutcharut managed to defend her Bruges title at The Trickshot, Brugge, twice in a row and become Belgium Open Champion 2024 defeating On Yee 4 – 2. 

It’s the first of the World Women’s ranking events of 2024, as the World Women’s tour will jet off next to Albania for the Albanian Women’s Open.

The 24-year-old Nutcharut and 33-year-old Ng On Yee managed 80 plus breaks in the final, but it was the Home favorite Wendy Jans, who knocked in a 108 in Group A on route to her semi-final loss that made the highest break of the weekend.

There were the last 16 places for 900 star EMMA PARKER, who has been fearless on the EXHIBITION CIRCUIT in the last couple of years, as well as Connie Stephens. SnookerZone has interviewed many of the top female players in the Women’s game, including the likes of Rebecca Kenna, Connie Stephens, Emma Parker, 900 star Jasmine Bolsover, and others.

In a repeat of the Seniors final from 2023, Tessa Davidson retained her Seniors Crown and defeated 900 star Mary Talbot Deegan who had won the final ranking event of last year when she claimed the Eden Women’s Masters 2023 in Coulsdon.

She defeated Deegan 3 – 0. Deegan had the highest break of a 68 in the semi-finals, with Davidson knocking in a 40.

Davidson has become a regular winner on the Women’s scene in the Winchester Women’s Open and of course on the World Women’s Snooker Tour. We’ve also interviewed Tessa Davidson.

In the Challenge Cup event, another Hong Kong player Yi Kae Ho, 37, defeated another Belgium player Caty Dehaene 2 – 0.

Ki Ho knocked in a 70.

34 entries for this season’s Belgium Women’s Open.

Last season Mink Nutcharut defeated Wendy Jans in the final.

Well done to EVERYONE in the event who competed over the weekend.
