Record 12-time world women’s champion Evans – who last year was awarded an MBE for her services to sport – will make her third successive appearance at the competition having previously taken on professional players Jimmy White and Ian Burns.
Set to make her professional tournament debut, Keighley’s Rebecca Kenna is a three-time World Women’s Snooker Tour ranking event finalist and to date has achieved a career-high ranking of number three. She has also competed in the mixed gender WSF Championship and Q School in recent seasons.
The pair will be among a field of 128 players alongside leading stars including Mark Selby, Shaun Murphy, Kyren Wilson, John Higgins, Mark Allen and Mark Williams.
The world ranking tournament, which has been running since 2011, has a unique set of rules, with matches lasting a maximum of ten minutes and a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and ten seconds for the last five.
The event is part of the BetVictor European Series with the winner of the Order of Merit set to earn a £150,000 bonus.
The draw and format will be announced shortly.
