World Women’s Snooker is coming to Yorkshire this autumn with the staging of a special event in Leeds city centre.
The day is aimed at promoting the World Women’s Snooker Tour and encouraging participation in snooker among women of all ages. There will be a snooker table installed at the state of the art 10m x 10m event space at the Markets, complete with PA system, overhead projector and a stunning eight metre LED screen for use on the day.
Taking place on the eve of this season’s first ranking event, the UK Women’s Championship at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds, we anticipate that a number of the world’s leading female snooker players including reigning world champion Ng On Yee will be in attendance to support activities.
Students from up to four local schools will be involved, together with local women traders from the markets take to the baize and try snooker and receive tips from WPBSA World Snooker coach Steve Mallender and the players present on the day.
We would encourage anybody from tour players to snooker fans in the area to come along and be involved in what should be a fantastic curtain-raiser to the new season.
