WSF Championships 2018 in Malta – Women and Seniors Groups round-up

Those who don’t follow me on Facebook or twitter might wonder why I haven’t posted anything in days… well I’m at the Dolmen Hotel in Malta, at the inaugural World Snooker Federation Championships, taking pictures.

And, no, despite the ones above, it’s not exactly holidays!

Over the last two days, the group stages of the World Women’s Snooker Championship and the WSF Seniors Championship have been played to a conclusion and you can find all the information you need here:

Women:  http://esnooker.pl/turnieje/2018/wsf/en/wsfk_2018.php

Seniors: http://esnooker.pl/turnieje/2018/wsf/en/wsfs_2018.php

That includes live scores on all tables, and a streaming on table 4.

The World Women’s Snooker Championship is now at the last 16 stage with,  the four players who topped the groups, seeded right in the QF

The WSF Seniors Championship is at the last 28 stage, with the four top players seeded in the last 16.

This will be followed by a mixed event, starting on Sunday, men and women, seniors and under-40, and the semi finals of the Women and Seniors event qualifying for the mixed event.

The winners of the Women and Seniors event will be invited to play in the qualifiers of the World Championship in Sheffield come April. The winner of the mixed event will get a main tour card. You can read more about this here .

You can have a look at the pictures I took so far here (those are Facebook links, but they are open to all)

The Opening Ceremony

Day 1 – 14 March 2018

WSF Championships 2018 – 15 March 2018

And I want to apologise to every player I didn’t manage to photograph… the tables at the back of the two rooms in use at the venue are not accessible without risking to disturb the matches in progress on adjacent tables. This means that I could only take pictures of eight  tables out of the 14 in use.

I’m NOT following the Romanian Masters at all, haven’t seen a single ball of it – too busy here – si I won’t post anything about that one!
