Christine Carr from Kildare is our 8th player on the all time list with RILSA, Christine is one of our most dedicated players on the tour as she’s never missed an event since joining the Association in 2014.
Her first big win in competition came in 2014, winning the Inaugural National Special Needs Snooker Championship with a convincing win over Rachael Bradley also from Kildare. Christine has dominated Intermediate Snooker ever since she joined the association. She has gone on to win ten National Intermediate Ranking events and was Runner up in another four during this time. On the Intermediate Rankings, she took number 6 spot in 2015 moved to number 2 in 2016 and finally took number 1 in 2017 and retained her number 1 spot in 2018. In 2019 Christine moved down to 2nd again but came back this season to take number 1 again for the 3rd time, a fantastic achievement for her. Christine went on to claim two Kildare County Championship titles in 2017 & 2018.
National Amateur Tour
While Christine makes great progress on the tour, her best result was semi final spot which she has made on numerous occasions. She made it to the final of the International Intermediate Irish Open in 2018 where she was Runner Up to Michelle French. On the National RILSA Amateur rankings, Christine’s consistency on the tour has seen her stay in the top 8 since joining RILSA and her best ranking was number 2 in 2019 another great achievement for her.
Christine has 8 International Caps for Ireland. She is a recipient of the Griffith Pin award for event attendances.
Christine joined the Billiards Tour in 2015 taking the runner up spot in the 1st and 2nd main ranking events of the 2016 season. In 2017 she was to reach the finals of 3 more events. While making progress during the 2018 season, Christine was to win her first National Billiards event on the main tour while reaching a further 3 finals making it her best season to date. 2019 saw Christine reach 5 out of 6 finals but was unfortunate not to win. Certainly has the capability and its just only a matter of time. Christine has been in number 2 spot on the National Billiards rankings since 2016 and is hoping to go one better in 2020 to make number 1!
In 2018 Christine was to win the Inaugural Intermediate Billiards Championship but soon afterwards moved up to amateur standard.
Christine was part of the inaugural International Ladies Billiards Team that represented Ireland in Wales in July 2019, making history for female billiards. Her highest 30 minute score is 95 to date and is very capable of much higher.
Christine has a total of 49 Medals, 13 Gold, 5 Silver and 15 Bronze for Snooker with 2 Gold, 12 Silver and 2 Bronze for Billiards which is a fantastic achievement for her.
Congratulations to Christine on all her success with RILSA to date and we appreciate her continued support, commitment and dedication to female cue sports in Ireland
