The provisional calendar for the 2017/18 World Women’s Snooker Tour has today been announced by World Ladies Billiards and Snooker (WLBS).
Following a landmark previous season which saw ranking events held in Germany and Singapore for the first time, the WLBS has confirmed that the World Women’s Championship will return to Asia for a second consecutive year from 12-18 March 2018
As in 2016, the new season will get underway in Germany, with the Paul Hunter Women’s Classic set to be held from 24-27 August 2017. The early stages of the event will be held at the Ballroom Nürnberg venue, with the final rounds to run alongside the professional Paul Hunter Classic tournament at the Stadthalle.
The event will be followed by the LITEtask UK Ladies Championship, which will once again be staged at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds on the weekend of 30 September – 1 October 2017.
The same venue will also host the LITEtask Festival of Snooker on 13-17 April 2018, with players competing for a range of world championship titles across a variety of singles and doubles competitions.
Information as to further provisional events, including the Eden Women’s Masters will be released as soon as possible.
WLBS President Mandy Fisher said: “Over the past few years the World Women’s Snooker Tour, under WLBS, has gone from strength to strength, thanks to the support of the WPBSA and our sponsors Eden Resources, LITEtask and the Northern Snooker Centre.
“Once again we will be travelling around the globe and welcoming players from all nationalities to compete in our world ranking events that have no limitations and are open to any women in the world.”
