I have been trying to promote Snooker and other female players (as well as trying to promote myself) for the past few years now but only got round to setting up my website last year. This is why I created this website to mainly focus on my Snooker career but also to encourage other women to become involved in the sport and to promote the sport in Northern Ireland.
I haven’t been successful in achieving this, I participated in a Snooker Charity event for Cancer Focus Northern Ireland in June, it was a great event and I enjoyed it. Although I lost my matches but it was going to a good cause. However, I was the only female there, I feel that more needs to be done to get more ladies interested in the sport over here! I personally would like to join a Snooker Team, I feel that no-one is helping me progress with my snooker, but they seem to be doing a lot for the males, joining teams/leagues ect. I do understand that you obviously have to be at a good standard before you can join a team but surely as there are no ladies that participate within the sport in Northern Ireland, I would think that someone would help me out and give me a chance. I am trying to promote our beautiful sport but as I have said on Social Media over the past few years; without the support there weather it’s by being involved in a Snooker Leauge or having a practise partner. It’s impossible to promote the sport if I not getting the right support to help me improve!
I know that the NIB&SA (Northern Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association) had a ladies team years ago but that sadly ended due to the lack of ladies playing the sport. It would be nice to see a ladies event here in Northern Ireland but I do enjoying playing against the males so the ladies event isn’t necessary. However, I would like to see more help and support from clubs all over Northern Ireland to support the ladies and junior players; as there are hardly any junior players coming through, if ladies like myself want to join a team we should be able to without any questions asked. I would like to join a team for the new 2017/2018 season, if anyone would like to contact me, please feel free to Contact Me or alternatively you can send me a message via Facebook.
