Queen’s Birthday Honours: Snooker great Reanne Evans made MBE

In our view Reanne has been instrumental in making people in the industry wake up to the idea that there is definitely a female force in snooker.

Hailing from Dudley Evans has been a true ambassador for the sport, being the face of many media interviews and was key to creating a Ladies Day at the World Championship.

Like her predecessor Alison Fisher who now plays pool in the USA, Reanne is dedicated in her approach to opening the eyes of Snooker and non snooker fans to the other side of the sport.

World Snooker has to be fair taken this on board and has become committed to creating an inclusive game with an eventual aim of men and women competing in the same venues.

In November 2019, Evans came within a frame of becoming the first woman to beat a man in snooker’s top 16.

She receives the honour for services to women’s snooker.
