Reanne Evans claims UK Women’s Championship title

Reanne Evans won the UK Women’s Championship for a record twelfth time with victory at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds on Sunday.

In the final, the Englishwoman overcame Bai Yulu – a rising start in the sport – with a 4-1 scoreline.

Earlier in the competition, Evans beat Jamie Hunter and Anupama Ramachandran to reach the last four.

Familiar foe Ng On Yee was her opposition in the semi-finals, but Evans orchestrated a 4-1 triumph against the Hong Kong potter.

Bai, who many believe will rise to the very top of the World Women’s Snooker Tour and possibly have an impact on the main tour in the future, impressed in her path to the final.

The young Chinese competitor counted Thai duo Mink Nutcharut and Baipat Siripaporn – the last two women’s world champions – among her conquests.

But Evans used her vast experience to control the title-deciding affair, and in doing so she captured her first title of the 2023/24 snooker season.

The next tournament on the WWS calendar is the Australian Women’s Open in October.

  1. Well done to Reanne Evans on winning the tournament, I had thought that her results on the women’s tour had dropped after her involvement on the main tour so this puts paid to that idea. The best women’s players rose to the top in this tournament so Evans’ win was deserved. Bai Yulu and Ng On-Yee are, in my own opinion, the two best women players right now.
    There has been little sign of progress on the main tour from any of the current contenders however. I had expected more first round victories over the last two plus years based on watching some of the better women players on YouTube and comparing it to the standard of the main tour first round matches that I’ve seen televised or streamed.
