EBPF Official Announcement 16th February 2024
Anna Goodwin
On 27 August 2023, we announced that from 3 December 2023, our competitions formerly known as the Ladies’ and Men’s Tours would be replaced with a Female Tour and an Open Tour, and that only biological women would be eligible to compete in the Female Tour. We made this decision in the interests of fairness, because we believe that people who have gone through male puberty have a competitive advantage over biological women.

As a consequence of this decision, we are now being sued by the transgender player Harriet Haynes. Harriet says that the eligibility rules for the Female Tour are discriminatory on the grounds of gender reassignment. We say that the rules are necessary to secure fair competition and a justified means of promoting female participation in the game. We also say that Harriet was ineligible for the Female Tour in any event as a result of having turned professional.

Harriet has not been banned. Harriet is eligible to compete in Open County matches and in the Open Tour.

We are disappointed that Harriet has chosen to sue an organisation made up entirely of volunteers who give up their time to promote the game of pool in England, but we stand by our decision and we intend to defend the claim.
