Rebecca Kenna Wins English Women’s Championship

Home » Rebecca Kenna Wins English Women’s Championship

Rebecca Kenna defeated Tessa Davidson 3-2 to lift the English Women’s Championship title for the second time in her career.

The former World Snooker Tour professional marked her return to the amateur game in perfect fashion by overcoming two fellow former champions en route to winning the title at Landywood Snooker Club.

The event was held prior to the World Women’s Snooker (WWS) British Open ranking event at the same venue and saw a field of 10 of England’s finest female cueists aiming to lift the national title.

A group stage narrowed the field to four as Kenna came through a ‘group of death’ that also featured 2020 English Women’s champion Emma Parker and the reigning WWS Seniors champion Davidson with a clean sweep of victories, while another former champion Hannah Jones and Jasmine Bolsover advanced from the other group.

Kenna and Davidson each came through their semi-final contests to set up a final rematch, after Kenna had won their initial group stage meeting in a tense decider.

Davidson was looking to win back it back-to-back EPSB crowns, following her victory in the Winchester Women’s Open Series Grand Finals last weekend, and she took the first two frames to move one away from further glory.

However, Kenna was able to keep her hopes alive by taking a scrappy third frame before forcing a decider with a break of 43 in the next.

A dominant victory in the fifth frame by a scoreline of 73-0 was then enough for Kenna to complete the turnaround and secure the English Women’s title.
