Snooker & Billiards NSW Ladies Tournament
Flyer attached below
Snooker & Billiards NSW will be hosting a brand new Women's National ranking event & development camp in March this year, and I would love for you to be a part of it!
Snooker & Billiards NSW (with Theresa Whitten's assistance) have secured NSW Government funding to assist with a new project which includes a snooker 'development camp' and incorporates a new national women's ranking event.
The project focuses on building skills through coaching, sports psychology, team building, competitive match-play and other activities to help female players improve/hone their abilities. This will be relevant and useful for players of all abilities.
We're also hoping to utilise as many female referees as possible, so that we're able to really showcase women's abilities in all facets of our game!
Travel subsidies will be available for all players, which will assist with the average cost of flights (or driving) from most major locations around Australia. (accommodation & entry fee will be at players expense).
More information on this to follow soon.
