World Women’s Snooker (WWS) has announced its provisional calendar of events for the 2019/20 World Women’s Snooker Tour.
Like last season, world ranking tournaments will be held in England, Australia, Belgium, and Thailand, with the showpiece World Women’s Snooker Championship set to return to the Hi-End Snooker Club in June 2020.
The season will be launched at the iconic Crucible Theatre in August with the invitational Women’s Tour Championship, as women’s snooker returns to the spiritual home of the sport for the first time in 16 years.
The new event will see the top four ranked players including reigning world champion Reanne Evans battle to claim the first silverware of the new season in Sheffield.
The ranking event calendar retains a familiar structure to last season with at least seven ranking tournaments to be staged, culminating in the World Women’s Snooker Championship.
Following the hugely successful running of the 2019 event together with the Hi-End Snooker Club and the Billiard Sports Association of Thailand, WWS has already confirmed a return to what is a world class venue for next year’s event.
The Tour will also revisit the Mounties Club with the support of the Australian Billiards and Snooker Council and The Trickshot in Belgium run by Olivier Vandenbohede and his team, following successful competitions for the first time in 2018/19.
Once again, WWS will also return to the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds, England for two events, a venue which has strongly supported women’s snooker for many years.
