Tournament information for the Albanian Women’s Open is now available:

The World Women’s Snooker (WWS) Tour heads to Albania for the first time from Monday as the second ranking tournament of 2024 is staged at the Grand Blue Fafa Resort, Golem.

Just over a week after world number one Mink Nutcharut captured her seventh ranking crown of the season at the Belgian Women’s Open, a strong field featuring nine of the world’s top 12 players is set to contest the inaugural WWS title held in southern Europe.

Reigning world champion Siripaporn Nuanthakhamjan is set to make her first appearance of the year, alongside current Australian Open winner Ng On Yee and UK Champion Reanne Evans.

England’s Rebecca Kenna – back up to number four in the latest rankings – will continue her quest to claim her maiden Tour title, as well as Masters champion Mary Talbot.

Current British Open champion Bai Yulu will also return to competition for the first time since she finished as runner-up to Evans in Leeds last September.

Alongside the main competition, there will also be Under-21 and Seniors side-tournaments staged, as well as a Challenge Cup competition, for players already knocked out of the main competition prior to the quarter-finals.


The format will be as follows:

  • The 21 players have been drawn in five groups of a maximum of five players
  • The top two players from each group will progress to the knockout stage
    • The five group winners and one best group runner-up will progress straight to the quarter-finals
    • The remaining 4 players will play a preliminary round match for the final two places
  • All qualifiers from the group stages will be positioned in the knockout draw according to group stage performance in line with our established qualifying criteria

Group matches will be played over the best of three frames, knockout rounds to be 5/5/7/7. If necessary the preliminary round matches may be shortened to 3 frames

The format for all side-tournaments will be straight knockout.
