REBECCA Kenna is set for an incredible opportunity in September, where she could end up in a doubles team with Ronnie O'Sullivan.

The Keighley potter will be taking part in a new World Snooker Tour tournament called the BetVictor World Mixed Doubles.

The pioneering tournament will see the world’s top four men – O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, Mark Selby and Neil Robertson – each paired with one of the top four women – Reanne Evans, Ng On Yee, Nutcharut Wongharuthai and Kenna.

Televised live by ITV, the invitation event will take place over the weekend of Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 at the Marshall Arena at MK Stadium in Milton Keynes.

The random draw will take place in advance of the event, with one man drawn to play alongside each woman.

The four pairs will compete over two days in a round-robin format, followed by the final with the winning team to be crowned inaugural champion.

Each round-robin match will be four frames, with all frames to be completed.

Teams will score one point for each frame. At the end of the group phase, the top two teams will go through to the final, which will be best of seven frames.

The two players in a team will make alternate visits to the table (rather than alternate shots).

Session times are 1pm and 7pm on both days.

Each of the first three sessions will feature two group matches, so all eight players will be in action.

The final will then take place on Sunday, September 25 from 7pm.

This will be the first televised mixed doubles snooker event since 1991, when Steve Davis and Allison Fisher joined forces to win the title in Hamburg.
