The Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association has seen the expansion and promotion of women’s & girls snooker advance at a phenomenal rate since 2014 with the new initiatives applied to help women and girls take up the sport.
Many landmarks have been made by RILSA in this short period along with many records in the numbers playing and events introduced.
RILSA have been inundated with enquiries from many women and young girls about the sport and since we introduced 5 new playing standards, we have seen an increase in all areas of promotion.
Our National Ranking list is a testament to our success to date.
The National Ranking list will have a more profound effect in selection and qualification for our players as we advance in promotions. Just to mention a few, Qualification for our International Open will be decided after all our National Event winners are selected with the remaining places coming from the ranking list.
The Maureen Butler Cup is a top 16 selection event while our inaugural Pink Ribbon event in May 2018 will see our top 8 players selected to play in the last 32 stage of the event.
Our top 16 players will qualify to the last 32 stage of our National Ladies Amateur Championship.
International friendly challenges in Snooker, Intermediate Snooker & Billiards will see selection from the National Rankings.
So it’s important for players to make sure they enter as many events as they can during the season.
Prize funds for the National Championship and the Maureen Butler Cup were introduced in 2017 and this funding will increase in 2018 along with our International Open we hope to see prize money reach an all time high of €3,500 this year.
