IBSF to arrange 4 womens tournaments, helps Olympics bid

Postby roy142857

Missed this news last month, the IBSF have announced that they will be arranging 4 womens ranking tournaments in 4 different regions as part of their shared plan with the WPBSA and other cuesports governing bodies to get cuesports into the Olympics - the Olympics require that all Olympic sports have this as a minimum, so no tournaments would mean no womens snooker possible in the Olympics.

No firm detail of this announced, but tentative dates of August 24th - September 4th in Egypt and October 8th - 11th in Australia.

A points allocation system will be introduced for all events and the Rankings will assist in the seeding for the IBSF World Championship.

Anyone interested should email to for details
