  • 2013 Women's World Championship

    SIX countries will be represented at the women’s world snooker championships that kick off in Cambridge next Friday.

    Eight-time champion Reanne Evans heads a star-studded international cast for the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association’s (WLBSA) showpiece event.

    Ladies Doubles opens the four-day jamboree at Cambridge Snooker Centre on Friday morning.

    And that afternoon, world number 20 Joe Perry again teams up with Tatjana Vasiljeva (Latvia) in a bid to land a fourth Mixed Doubles title. Also in the running is WLBSA president Mandy Fisher partnering former snooker professional and top billiards player Phil Mumford.

    Round-robin group matches for the main event will be played to a finish on Saturday.

    Early favourites in the 21-strong field are Evans, bidding for a ninth straight title, world number one Maria Catalano, desperate to claim a first world crown, and six-time world billiards champion Emma Bonney.

    Vasiljeva, India’s Chitra Magimairaj and the Hong Kong quartet of Jaique Ip Wan In, Yu Ching Ching, Ng On Yee and So Man Yan will be hoping to take the trophy overseas.

    The top three from each of the four groups qualify for the knockout stage on Sunday. The final will be held on Monday morning.

    It sounds like a great event and hopefully some of it will either
    be televised live or on Youtube at a later date.

        Hi Tim
        quick question, are Jasmine and Gavin Bolsover any relation to Anthony Bolsover who was playing in the 90s/00s?
        Up the TSF!


        • #5
          Sorry, Dean. No idea.


          • #6
            No they aren't Dean, I asked Gavin the same question.
            You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't


            • #7
              Such an unusual name I'd thought there could have been
              What is their relationship, siblings?
              Up the TSF!


              • #8
                Gavin is Jasmines Father but he did confirm that they are not in any way related to Anthony.
                You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't


                • #9
                  Cheers for that
                  Up the TSF!

                      Should be a good final between the 2 of them .
                      Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !


                      • #12
                        The final has started. Reanne knocks in a 100 clearance in the first frame.

                        She is 2-0 up at the moment.
                        You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't


                        • #13

                          • #14
                            2nd century from Reanne 117 to go 4-2 ahead.
                            You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't


                            • #15
                              Sorry the 117 was to go 5-2 ahead. Maria knocked in a 44 to take the next 5-3. Best of 11.
                              You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't
