NEWLY-married Rebecca Kenna has climbed to sixth in the World Ladies' Billiards & Snooker world rankings.

Known previously as Granger, the 28-year-old from Keighley, who reached the semi-finals of the last two Eden World Championships, finished the 2016-17 campaign with a busy Easter week at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds.

Six titles were decided at the LITEtask Women's Festival of Snooker over five days, but only two carried world ranking points.

However, Rebecca did well in both, losing 3-2 to eventual winner Ng On Yee in both the Six Reds Championship semi-final and 3-1 to the same player in the Ten Reds Championship quarter-final.

While the Hong Kong woman slashed world No 1 Reanne Evans' lead by more than half, Rebecca's form meant that she swapped places with Latvia's Tatjana Vasiljeva in rising to sixth.

Reanne could not take part at Leeds as she was playing in the Betfred World Championship qualifiers at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, defeating experienced Finn Robin Hull 10-8 before losing 10-6 to Welshman Lee Walker.

Rebecca was one of two major movers in the world rankings, rising from 21st at the start of the season, while Wales' Laura Evans went up from 12th to fourth.

In the Six Reds event, Rebecca defeated Heidi De Gruchy, So Man Yan and Katrina Wan 3-1 before losing to world No 2 Yee.

Jodie Allen and Sharon Kaur were despatched 3-0 by Rebecca in the Ten Reds event before she again faced Yee.

Rebecca also competed in the mixed doubles with Keighley's Dylan Mitchell, losing 3-1 in the final to Wan and Sanderson Lam after beating Suzie Opacic and Lee Steven 3-0, Laura Evans and Jeremy Benn 3-2 (Mitchell 48 break) and Luise Kraatz and Wayne Brown 3-1.

Rebecca also entered the women's doubles with top junior Shannon Metcalf, losing 3-2 to Man Yan and Jaique Ip Wan In.
