Jackie Ellis became the first female Roll-Up champion at Chandlers Ford Snooker Club following her success last weekend

SHE’S the first female Roll-Up champion in the 25-year history of the competition at Chandlers Ford Snooker Club in Hampshire.

Jackie Ellis overcame her inner demons and survived a tense final night to claim top spot.

The 52-year-old, from Clyffe Pypard near Royal Wootton Bassett, led the six-month money list going into the final handicapped tournament, but a 17-strong field meant any of the top four could have taken the £175 first prize.

However, she was unbeaten in six matches to win her round-robin group.


Ellis suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, which causes widespread pain and affects balance, coordination, concentration and short-term memory.

Her World Snooker coach Tim Dunkley said: “Overcoming anxiety and the effects of these two debilitating illnesses is a daily challenge for Jackie.

“So to become the first woman to win the Roll-Up was remarkable.

“Her conditions mean she has to work even harder than her peers. But this title is worth all those hours on the practice table and all those sleepless nights.”
