World Women’s Snooker (WWS) and Ox Billiards are today hugely excited to announce significant new sponsorship agreements for next month’s US Women’s Snooker Open with Microsoft and Littman Lights.
The historic tournament is set to run from 26-28 August 2022 at Ox Billiards, Seattle, and will be the first ever WWS Tour ranking event held in the United States.
Microsoft is an American multinational technology corporation and one of the world’s most recognisable brands. Products including its Windows Operating Systems, Xbox and Surface ranges are widely established across the globe.
With its headquarters based in Redmond, Washington, just 15 miles east of Seattle, the company is ideally placed to support this major new event.
Littman Lights is a major supplier of specialist bespoke lighting for pool tables based on Oregon, United States. With its products used by the likes of Shane Van Boening, Sky Woodward, Allison Fisher and Nick Varner, Littman Lights offer a wide range of lighting solutions for tables of all sizes.
Mandy Fisher, WWS President said: “This sponsorship represents a major milestone for World Women’s Snooker ahead of the first staging of the US Women’s Snooker Open. To receive the backing of a company of the stature of Microsoft and Littman Lights is fantastic and I would like to thank both for their support.”
Mike Dominguez of Ox Billiards said: “We are delighted to have both Microsoft and Littman Lights on board for the staging of this tournament. Both organisations are Pacific Northwest in origin and major supporters of inclusivity in sports and other parts of life. It is great to have their support to build women’s snooker in America.”
Entry remains open for the US Women’s Snooker Open until 12 August 2022, with women of all ages and experience encouraged to enter and be part of this unique event.
