  • East meets West Midlands

    HONG Kong’s finest take on Dudley’s deadly duo in the battle for supremacy in the world of women’s snooker on Saturday.

    A high-quality international cast will assemble at the North East Derbyshire Snooker Centre, Clay Cross, for the UK Championship, a World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association ranking event.

    Nine-time world champion Reanne Evans and defending UK champion Maria Catalano, the world number one, face a four-strong attacking force from the East.

    Ng On Yee, Jaique Ip Wan In, Yu Ching Ching and So Man Yan will attempt to halt the relentless flow of silverware to the West Midlands.

    Or could the East Midlands spring a surprise? Top junior Hannah Jones sampled the high life by reaching last month’s British Open final and the 17-year-old from Derby will be keen for a second stab at claiming her first ranking title.

    Latvia star Tatjana Vasiljeva, who has won four pairs titles at the world championships, will be bidding for her first singles crown. Vicky Carter, a losing semi-finalist last year, is hoping to make her first final. Laura Evans makes a welcome return to the circuit while Sharon Kaur makes her debut.

    The £300 sponsored event kicks off at 10am.
