    Also on the programme are a Seniors (40+) tournament, an Under-21 competition and a Plate for those not reaching the semi-finals of the main event.

    The British Open, last competed for in 2010 and won by Evans, is the first of eight ranking events on the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association’s £8,400 2013/14 tour.

              REANNE Evans kicked off the 2013/14 women’s snooker season with victory in the British Open.

              The nine-time world champion from Dudley, West Midlands, accounted for teenager Hannah Jones 4-1 in the final at Whitley Bay Snooker Centre, Tyne and Wear.

              Derby ace Jones, 17, appearing in her first ranking final, took the first frame but was unable to deny 27-year-old Evans her 33rd World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association ranking title.

              World number one Maria Catalano had pulled out of the event because of illness.

              Earlier, Jones defeated her ten-year-old sister Ellie 2-0 in the Under-21 final.

              Vicky Carter, knocked out 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the main event by Hannah Jones, triumphed in the Plate competition – defeating Maureen Rowland 2-0 in the final.

              Local girl Rowland, from Wallsend, came close in her second final of the day. She took the first frame of the Seniors (40+) final on the pink but missed the black for the match in the next.

              But perhaps the snooker gods were looking down on her opponent, Jenny Poulter, who ran out a 2-1 victor.

              Poulter’s mum Jean had been taken ill when the pair arrived on Friday night from their home in Maidstone but insisted from her hospital bed that her daughter competed in the British Open.

              The WLBSA wishes Jean a speedy recovery.

              The British Open was the first of eight ranking events on the WLBSA’s £8,400 2013/14 tour.

              RESULTS (BREAKS)

                Well done to all, good to see Hannah getting to the main final and winning the U-21 as have played her a few times in local competitions in the last year or two....seem to remember staying in Whitley Bay one night myself on a tour of racecourses, think I went to a Sunderland FC match that ended 0-0, then drove to where I was staying and took a stroll in the (extremely) bracing North East seaside air before retiring to the B&B and then the next day off to a very wet and windy Kelso racecourse, then remember being sat at a traffic light stuck on red for about half an hour on some remote country road on the way back before I realised it was never gonna change, apart from that all went well!
