Super Six for Evans at Women’s World Snooker Championship?

REANNE Evans is hoping for the joy of six at the women’s world snooker championships which kick off in Cambridge on Saturday (April 3).

The phenomenal 24-year-old, from Dudley, West Midlands, has already claimed a record five straight World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association world titles.

And she has won her last 57 matches on the WLBSA circuit.

Paul Wood is sponsoring the £1,000 five-day jamboree at Cambridge Snooker Centre

Evans, the number one seed, begins her campaign on Monday in the last-16

Keen to secure a first world title is world number two Maria Catalano, Ronnie O’Sullivan 28-year-old cousin.

Among the overseas players are Chitra Magimairaj (India), Natascha Niermann (Germany), Laura Alves (Dublin), Tatjana Vasiljeva (Latvia), and Hong Kong pair Yu Ching Ching and Jaique Ip Wan In.

The round-robin group stages will be played on Saturday and Sunday. Qualifiers meet the eight seeded players in the last-16 on Monday. The final is on Wednesday at 1.30pm.

Hannah Jones, 13, from Derby, will be bidding for a hat-trick of Junior titles on Sunday.

Non-qualifiers from the round-robins meet in the Plate on Monday. The following day it’s the Mixed Pairs. On Wednesday, the Seniors and Doubles come to a conclusion.

Billiards takes centre stage on Thursday at the Hall Green Stadium, Birmingham. Four-time champion Emma Bonney, from Portsmouth, is chasing a third successive title in the £1,000 event, also sponsored by Paul Wood.
