Overview

World Women’s Snooker (WWS) welcomes women and girls of all levels of ability to try snooker and to enter our tournaments which are held throughout the year.

All Abilities Welcome!

One of the most common fears expressed by potential players is: "I'm not good enough for a world tour" - but in reality there is a place for players of ALL standards and levels of ability to play in our events.

You will come across players on a wide spectrum of ability, from beginners to experienced cueists and by competing against these players you will have a fantastic opportunity to learn the game while also enjoying yourself.

While the competition on the table is real, away from the baize there is a thriving community of players on the circuit who help and support each other with an atmosphere second to none. Whether you are new to the Tour or returning after time away, you will be made to feel welcome and part of the snooker family!

Tournament Structure

Our regular ranking events typically are held over 2-3 days (usually a weekend around school or work commitments), beginning with a round robin group stage to guarantee multiple matches for all players, with the most successful qualifying for the knockout rounds.

We are keen to ensure that players receive as much playing time as possible at our events and so for players who are unable to qualify for the final stages, at selected tournaments they will also have the option to participate in a Challenge Cup tournament.

We also regularly hold side competitions, including Juniors (under-21) and Seniors (over-40) events for players of all abilities, alongside our main tournaments.

Whether you hope to become the next Reanne Evans or simply want to have fun and enjoy the social experience, all women are welcome to our events and we look forward to seeing you on the baize soon!
