The World Women’s Snooker Championship 2018 will be staged as part of the new WSF Championships in March.
The selection criteria has been announced and the top 30 on the WLBS Rankings following the WLBS British Open 2018 will be invited to compete.
Also, each Nation Federation that is a member of the WSF, will be able to nominate up to four additional players to compete.
WLBS said on their Facebook page
“We firmly believe that it is in the long-term interests of women’s snooker to introduce selection criteria for the World Championship that will create inspiration for the development of both players and the sport as a whole. This selection process also brings us closer to the guidelines of the International Olympic Committee which will ultimately be required if snooker is to one day be included in the Olympics.
We can also confirm that this will only apply to the World Women’s Snooker Championship for the foreseeable future and that the upcoming Litetask Ltd Festival of Snooker set to be held in Leeds, England from 13-17 April 2018 will remain open to all players.
WLBS remains committed to providing opportunities for women players around the world to play snooker competitively and by closely working with the WSF will be able to stage many more international events across the globe during the coming seasons.”
