World Women’s Snooker Rankings Update January 2023…
THAILAND’S MINK NUTCHARUT has shot up to become the new World Number Two on the World Women’s Snooker Tour – as the rankings for January 2023 have been released.
The news comes as the World’s top female snooker stars competed in Belgium last weekend with the 23-year-old lifting her fifth ranking title of her already illustrious career as the first ranking event of 2023 also kick-started many New Year’s resolutions for some of the game’s rising stars.
Tessa Davidson, Mary Talbot-Deegan and Woking Snooker Star Jasmine Bolsover are all slowly creeping into the World’s elite on the tour with the exciting prospect of potentially gaining major silverware within the next two seasons as the standard is getting higher and higher at the top.
Next month, the finale to the season ends with the World Women’s Snooker Championship to be held in Bangkok where a player has the prospect of earning a two-year tour card for the professional circuit – assuming there isn’t the same winner.
Mink Nutcharut was last year’s winner and received the card.
Rebecca Kenna and the also young talent Emma Parker all stay on the same ranking spots as World number 4 and 6 respectively.
The Woking Wizardess Jasmine Bolsover told the Woking News and Mail in December that her goal was to reach the top ten.
She jumps two spaces from World no 18 to World number 16 on the Two-year ranking list.
The 23-year-old, who returned to snooker last year after University, and was a World ranking of 11 in 2016 told the News & Mail in December last year: “I’ve done maybe seven tournaments since I’ve been back and I’ve got to number 18 in the world, so I’m happy with that. I’m coming up the rankings and getting there slowly. The aim is to be in the top 10.”
Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee, who relinquished a top spot to the rising talent of Mink Nutcharut, competed in The World Snooker Shootout currently being played on the World Professional Tour and lost on her debut in the first taste of the fast and furious snooker event.
On Yee, a multiple World Women’s Champion, wrote on Facebook: “First taste of the Shootout. Not as rushed as I expected – only with a heart rate of 104bpm before the match.
She added: “All credit to Vladislav Gradinari (Moldovan) with such solid cueing at the age of 14. All the best to your future match and games.”
