Draw and Format For the LITEtask UK Womens' Snooker Championships Released
The draw and format for this weekend’s LITEtask UK Women’s Snooker Championship is now available here.
The event returns to its home at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds as the curtain raiser for the new World Women’s Snooker Tour season following the summer break.
Won last year by current world number one Ng On Yee, this year’s event will see nine of the world’s top ten among a 28-player field set to compete for the title, including five newcomers to the women’s circuit.
Alongside the main tournament there will also be side-events for Under-21 and Seniors players, with players to note that both of these competitions will begin on Saturday. There will also be a Challenge Cup event for players who have been knocked out of the main competition before Sunday.
Suzie Opacic Drawn in Group A
Billiards Boutique player, Suzie Opacic, has been drawn in Group A and will face Nutcharut Wongharuthai of Thailand, plus Elizabeth Black and Heidi De Gruchy of England.
The top two progress to the last 16 knockout stage where top seeds Ng On Yee and Reanne Evans start their respective tournaments.
