Shaun Murphy Supporting New EPSB Women’s Series…
A new series of events begins this month as the English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards (EPSB) launches a season of events held with the grand prize of £1000 in the Grand Finals.
2005 World Champion Shaun Murphy is backing the event, as well as The Winchester Snooker Club, as the 8 events are open to ALL .
The EPSB striding to make snooker accessible for more women and girls.
The news comes as currently, some players on the WWS tour are heading out to America for the US Open, now in its second season at Ox Billiards in Seattle, sponsored by WineCellars.com, Littman Lights and Ox Billiards.
All events on the Series will be played at The Winchester Snooker Club.
Mukesh Parmar, owner of The Winchester said: “We are excited to be able to work together with the EPSB on this project, having previously staged events on the World Women’s Snooker (WWS) Tour and most recently the English Women’s Open last September.”
Recent Championship League winner Murphy, who has been trailing the exhibition circuit around the country promoting the game, told the EPSB: ” “I am pleased to be able to contribute to the launch of the Winchester Women’s Open Series by the EPSB and my friend Mukesh Parmar at the Winchester Snooker Club.
“This is a brilliant new incentive for women and girls to get involved with our sport, whether first time players or regular competitors, and I wish everyone taking part the best of luck as they look to qualify for the Grand Finals!”
The events will run into late 2024, with the playoff final to be confirmed and go on SnookerScores for confirmation or changes to the events.
Good luck to those who decide to enter…
