The 2022 English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards (EPSB) English Women’s Snooker Championship will take place this month at Frames Academy in Coulsdon.
So far, 10 players have entered the event to be held on the 19th and 2oth March with the 10 so far representing two different countries.
The World Women’s top players such as Rebecca Kenna, World no 4 and Emma Parker, World no 5 have already signed up, as has Woking Snooker Centre’s Jasmine Bolsover – 44th.
Entries for this event close on the 14th March at 12.
This event comes as SnookerZone learns that the World Women’s Snooker Tour will be jetting off back to Australia later on in the year in October for the new WWS season as Sydney will host a World Women’s Event in 2022, after a long wait since the coronavirus pandemic halted travel for male and female snooker players.
The event will be organized by the Australian Billiards and Snooker Council (ABSC) with the support of WWS and will again be hosted by the Mt Pritchard District and Community Club, known as ‘Mounties’ in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia.
Won by Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee (2018) and Thailand’s Nutcharut Wongharuthai (2019), who will now be a fully-fledged professional next season, on its previous stagings, the event has proven popular with local and international players alike since its introduction to the WWS calendar.
Nutcharut has also been offered a place to play for this year’s BetFred World Professional Snooker Championships, as has Rebecca Kenna.
The show must go on despite a war…
It also comes as the last 64 professionals on the main tour are currently playing in Turkey for the inaugural Turkish Masters in Antalya after Joe Perry scooped his second ranking title at the Welsh Open in Newport.
It’s the first time snooker players have properly traveled outside of the UK since the coronavirus pandemic of the past two years.
Amid the turmoil of the war going in Ukraine, there is the serenity and the luxury in the hotel spot of Turkey for the snooker players.
Top players such as Neil Robertson, though, have not made the journey to Antalya – understandably.
