Buzzing Again: NG On Yee Claims UK Ladies Snooker Championship

On Yee is current World Ladies Snooker Champion winning it three times in 2015/17/18.

Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee is the United Kingdom Ladies Champion 2018 for the fourth time in her career at the top of the ladies game.

World number one, On Yee, 27, defeated a surprising finalist in Rebecca Kenna 4 – 1, who has been knocking on the door to winning a major ladies event in the past few seasons.

Kenna shocked in the last 16 stage as she saw off the 11-time World Ladies Champion Reanne Evans 3 – 2 and then worked her way into the final seeing off some talented Thai players on route also.

The event was held at snooker’s hub central of Yorkshire the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds over the weekend.

On Yee is a three-time World Championship winner.

The ladies now take a trip to Belgium in the European Women’s Masters in two week’s time early October on the 5th – 7th.

Also, over the weekend, Suzie Opacic, whom SnookerZone had interviewed prior to the UK event in Leeds managed runner-up in the Challenge Cup losing to 16-year-old Shannon Metcalf in the final.

In the main event, the top break of 61 was made by Nutcharut Wongharuthai, who made it to the semi-finals losing out to Kenna.

It was also a return to competitive snooker for Grimsby’s Heidi De Gruchy, after a spell away from the WLBS competitions and is back on the main stage. Heidi couldn’t quite make it out of the group stages but was pleased to be back competing on the baize again both in the main event and the Challenge Cup.

Congratulations to all who competed – from SnookerZone.
