The Women's World Snooker Championship is the leading professional snooker tournament in women's snooker.
The first championship was held in 1976. From 1998 to 2003 the championship was sponsored by Embassy, with the final taking place at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield during the main world championship, but following the restrictions on tobacco advertising in 2003, WPBSA ceased support for the tournament in 2004 and the event was not held due to WPBSA's financial difficulties. The event was revived in 2005 under the WLBSA. The most successful player in the tournament's history is Reanne Evans, who has won the title eleven times.
The 2017 championship was held in Toa Payoh, Singapore; the first time since 1995 that it had been held outside of the UK.
