REBECCA Kenna was quickly back on the scene of her World Women's Snooker Championship semi-final heartbreak last week in Sheffield.

Barely a week after losing to Nutcharut Wongharuthai in the last-four at the blue-riband event in women's snooker, Keighley potter Kenna entered the World Snooker Federation Championship at the Ding Junhui Snooker Academy.

The mammoth mixed-gender event, involving nearly 300 of snooker's best amateur players, had a real "golden ticket prize".

The winner at the end of it was in line for a coveted two-year World Snooker Tour Card, allowing them to compete on the professional circuit from the start of the 2022-23 season.

Kenna was awarded a walkover win over Belgium's Lykidis Spiridon in Group BN, but a 3-0 defeat against Antoni Kowalski, with the Pole recording one impressive break of 96, meant she had to win her final game against teenager Mickey Joyce.

At 1-0 down to her fellow Englishman, things didn't look good for Kenna, but she roared back to win 3-1, with a narrow 56-44 victory in frame two proving decisive.

That result put her into a last-128 clash with England's Josh Thomond.

Though she levelled the match at 1-1, a 66-43 loss in frame three proved decisive, and Thomond won the next one easily to condemn Kenna to a 3-1 defeat.

In the end, 19-year-old Chinese sensation Jiahui Si won the tournament, blitzing Lee Stephens 5-0 in the final to earn himself that professional tour card.
