Reanne Evans Captures UK Women’s Championship Title

It was a record-extending tenth victory in the tournament for the world number one.

The first event staged on the World Women’s Snooker Tour for more than a year ended in familiar fashion with Reanne Evans triumphing in the UK Women’s Snooker Championship in Leeds on Sunday.

The top seed didn’t fail to live up to her heavy favourite’s tag, losing only two frames across the weekend’s play at the Northern Snooker Centre.

Evans has been plying her trade more regularly on the Main Tour recently having been given a professional card for the 2021/22 snooker season, but she returned to her roots with a typically resounding success here.

The Englishwoman received a bye through to the last 16, where she comfortably overcame Connie Stephens with a 3-0 scoreline before repeating that feat against Chucky Preston in the last eight.

Evans was finally troubled in the semi-final with namesake Laura Evans taking two frames to conjure inclinations of a possible upset.

However, the 35 year-old won the final three frames to progress to another career final, which she duly won with ease thanks to a 4-0 victory against Rebecca Kenna.

The latter had reached the final with back-to-back deciding-frame triumphs – first against Maria Catalano before a 4-3 defeat of Emma Parker at the semi-final stage.

Kenna couldn’t muster up a sterner challenge against Evans, who has now won the UK Women’s Championship a staggering ten times.

Indeed, It’s a 63rd women’s title overall from a glittering career in which she has also been crowned champion of the world on a dozen occasions.

Meanwhile, in the under-21 tournament there was victory for Steph Daughtery while Michaelle Brown claimed the honours in the seniors event.

  1. This is not going to do much to encourage more women into competing, if professionals are allowed to keep competing in the amateur competitions!
