SHEFFIELD TO STAGE WOMEN’S SNOOKER DAY
Women’s snooker will be showcased during the ongoing Betfred World Snooker Championship on Wednesday 1st May 2019 with activities taking place at the Sheffield Winter Garden across from the iconic Crucible Theatre.
Previously held as Ladies Day, the newly rebranded Women’s Snooker Day aims to encourage women to participate in snooker at all levels, including the World Women’s Snooker Tour which welcomes players of all ages and abilities to compete at its events.
Organised by World Snooker, in partnership with the WPBSA and World Women’s Snooker (WWS), the day will see activities staged throughout at the ‘Cue Zone’ with world women’s number 3 and 1st4sport WPBSA Level 2 coach Rebecca Kenna supported by Sarah McManus and Annette Lord. They will be joined by players from the World Women’s Snooker Tour including 11-time world champion Reanne Evans and students from Spire Junior School, encouraging members of the public to pick up a cue and try snooker.
Also present will be WWS President and former world women’s champion Mandy Fisher.
Once again Women’s Snooker Day will form part of the #Cue4All initiative organised by the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, which aims to promote the inclusive nature of snooker and billiards.
Even if you cannot make it to the Crucible on the day, be part of the celebrations by hosting open days at your club, offering free taster sessions, running snooker challenges, promoting your community snooker sessions and sharing stories on social media about the groups or individuals who access your snooker facilities.
Remember to tag in the hashtag #Cue4All across social media so that we can share your inclusive activities during this year’s Betfred World Championship!
