World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association press release
THE women’s snooker circuit descends on Bury St Edmunds on Saturday.
Pot Black Sports Bar is sponsoring and hosting the British Open, the third leg on the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association tour.
The queens of the green baize will be in action from 10am. The format is a best-of-five straight knockout.
Defending champion and six-time women’s world champion Reanne Evans, who now plays on the professional circuit, has confirmed she will definitely play.
The 25-year-old from Dudley, West Midlands, smashed Kelly Fisher’s record of 69 consecutive winning matches at the East Anglian Championship in Cambridge last month. Her 3-0 victory over world number two Maria Catalano was her 72nd straight win on the WLBSA circuit.
Natascha Niermann, the eight-time German national champion who is now based in Cambridge, reached her first WLBSA semi-final at the East Anglian Championship and will be hoping to go one better in Bury St Edmunds.
Five-time world billiards champion Emma Bonney travels up from Portsmouth and joins Ronnie O’Sullivan’s cousin Catalano as those with the best chance of dethroning Evans.
Also in the line-up are world number five Eva Palmius, from Isleham, Cambs, and young stars Hannah Jones, 14, from Derby, the world junior champion, and ten-year-old Jasmine Bolsover from Woking.
The WLBSA is hosting six ranking events this season culminating in the World Championships in April.
