World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association press release
WOMEN snooker stars Maria Catalano and Emma Bonney have been installed as favourites to land the East Anglian Championship on Saturday.
Cambridge Snooker Centre hosts the second leg on the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association circuit.
The draw takes place at 9.45am with play commencing at 10am. The format is a best-of-five straight knockout.
World number one Reanne Evans, now a professional, will be competing in World Snooker’s Players Tour Championship in Gloucester.
Catalano, 28, from Dudley, West Midlands, and Portsmouth’s Bonney, 34, are both bidding for a first WLBSA snooker title since 2008.
A dark horse for the East Anglian Championship could be World Seniors champion June Banks, who will be making her first appearance outside of the World Championships for more than a year. Kent-based Banks was ranked number five at the end of the 2008/09 season but has now slipped to 21st.
Also among the 16-strong field are: Tina Owen Sevilton, who reached the semi-finals of last month’s UK Championship; World Junior Champion Hannah Jones, 14, who shocked many by making the last-four of the non-ranking Wytech Masters; and Eva Palmius, who has climbed to number six in the rankings.
The WLBSA is hosting six ranking events this season culminating in the World Championships in April.
