Duo offered pro tour cards in big break for women

England’s Reanne Evans and Ng On-yee of China’s Hong Kong have been offered two-year tour cards to play regularly against the men on the professional circuit, the World Snooker Tour said yesterday.

World Women’s Snooker president Mandy Fisher said the International Women’s Day announcement ranked as “one of the most significant days in our history so far.” The WWS celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. “For our tour and most importantly our players to be recognized in this way represents a huge moment for women in snooker,” added Fisher. Evans, winner of the women’s world championship a record 12 times, and Ng have been leading lights for 15 years with the pair dominating major competitions. Ng is a three-time world champion and also a former world No. 1. Places for women will continue to be offered every season at world championship qualifiers and Champion of Champions events.
