Hosted by our friends at Hi-End Snooker and the Billiard Sports Association of Thailand (BSAT), the ceremony was well-attended by players and officials, as well as the board of BSAT, Thai professionals James Wattana and Noppon Saengkham.
With the striking trophies for the week on display alongside the perpetual World Women’s Snooker Championship trophy returned by 2018 champion Ng On Yee, the evening saw speeches from dignitaries including BSAT President Suntorn Jarumon and WWS President Mandy Fisher.
All players were presented with welcome gifts by our hosts, including tournament programme, clothing and more.
The draws for both events have now been made and are available to view via snookerscores.net.
