The World Snooker Federation Open has a tour card for the winner, but only one woman has entered
Amongst all the hoo-ha over women and their inclusion in professional snooker, there are events going on in which they can enter, but don’t.
They obviously have their reasons and don’t need to divulge them to anyone. But events like this are the perfect vehicle for them to show that they can compete against their male counterparts.
I would have thought at least one, if not all four, of the top women players would have jumped at the chance to earn themselves a main tour place.
