  • Women's World Championships 2012

    THE chasing pack can smell blood as women’s snooker star Reanne Evans bids to end a nightmare season with a record eighth successive world title.

    Cambridge Snooker Centre hosts the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association’s World Championships, which start on Friday, April 20.

    Seven-time champion Evans saw her record 90-match winning streak ended by Maria Catalano in the Northern Championship back in September.

    Although the 26-year-old from Dudley, West Midlands, returned to winning ways in the UK Championship, she missed the next two events after being struck down by pleurisy.

    And Catalano, now ranked number one, inflicted another defeat on Evans, who has dropped to number three, in the preliminary round of the Connie Gough Memorial.

    Winner of three ranking tournaments this season, Catalano, 29, also from Dudley, must see 2012 as her best chance of fulfilling her long-held dream of a first world title.

    The WLBSA are delighted to welcome back Hong Kong quartet Jaique Ip Wan In, Yu Ching Ching, Ng On Yee and So Man Yan. And Chitra Magimairaj and Revanna Umadevi from India.

    Tatjana Vasiljeva will again team up with world number 26 Joe Perry as the Latvia/Chatteris double act chases a hat-trick of Mixed Pairs titles. Former WLBSA chairman, and now president, Mandy Fisher is also in the line-up for the opening event on Friday.

    The round-robin stage of the main competition kicks off at 10am on Saturday with the final scheduled for 2.30pm on Tuesday. Seniors play to a finish on Sunday and the Plate competition will be decided on Monday.

    Southern Classic champion Emma Bonney, the world number two from Portsmouth, could be the first to claim both the snooker and billiards crowns since Kelly Fisher in 2003. Bonney will be seeking a fifth straight billiards title on Wednesday.

    The WLBSA thanks Cambridge Snooker Centre for hosting the events.

      Tatjana Vasiljeva and Joe Perry completed a hat-trick of Mixed Pairs titles in the opening event of the women’s world championships in Cambridge today.

      Rumour has it they were going to have the trophy for six months each but the cost of postage from Chatteris to Latvia proved to be a major hurdle.


      QUARTER-FINALS: Natascha Niermann & Will Scott beat Mandy Fisher & Phil Mumford 3-2, Tatjana Vasiljeva & Joe Perry beat Fran Calvert & Aidan Owens 3-1, Vicky Carter & Rob Shirley beat Jasmine Bolsover & Gavin Bolsover 3-1, Emma Bonney & Nigel Ward beat Jan Hughes & David Pyke 3-0.

      SEMI-FINALS: Vasiljeva & Perry beat Niermann & Scott 3-0, Bonney & Ward beat Carter & Shirley 3-1.

      FINAL: Vasiljeva & Perry beat Bonney & Ward 3-0.

                Too bad. What a shame, I really want to see it

                But yea, thank you for the update

                  Will the offical website and twitter be updated again? I've been waiting for a year.

                  Another question: Will WLBSA expand the Asia/Oceania or Europe market? I don't think that the recent professional tour could survive with just 20-30 players.

                    I understand that the website is being re-developed ready for June/July.

                        THE top four seeds are safely through to the knockout stage of the women’s world championships at Cambridge Snooker Centre.

                        World number one Maria Catalano dropped just one frame in the round-robin stages to book a last-16 date with number four seed Vicky Carter, who qualified fourth in her group.

                        Seven-time world champion Reanne Evans won all five of her matches but dropped three frames. She faces India’s Chitra Magimairaj.

                        Emma Bonney, the only player yet to lose a frame, meets Chris Sharpe.

                        Group C winner Ng On Yee, one of four Hong Kong women in the last-16, takes on her compatriot Yu Ching Ching.
