The English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards is pleased to announce further details about this season’s new English Women’s and Billiards Championships, which are now both open to enter.

When the EPSB took over the running of national events last summer, one of its aims was to revive both national championships and to welcome more women and billiards players into the membership so that they can have their say about how their sport could be shaped at this level.
